    Haha I think my pc has a little language problem! Strange how is that possible?

    This had to have come through some other way than the last CU. I did install an update to a language pack before I noticed that, but it was still fine after the last CU, I think.

    Although fully compliant with Win 11, my rig is staying on Win 10 for now as it runs great and 11 isn't offering anything I must immediately have. That said, I am experimenting with 11 on a fully compatible Acer laptop with a local account, upgraded via the upgrade installer.

    While 11 is running just fine, Microsoft, in my opinion, has made a serious blunder regarding one of the settings in Windows Update.

    On 10, if you have an optional update available, you see "View Optional Updates" on the main WU page. Not so on 11. To see if there are optional updates, once on the main WU page, you have to click "Advanced Options" and then find the optional updates section. This morning, the Acer had a firmware update. Had I not deliberately gone digging, I never would've known it was there.

    There are a lot of people who never go to Windows Update in the first place and of those who do, how many will realize they have to remember to take extra steps to check optional updates? Out of sight, out of mind. Not one of MS's better decisions.

    Yes, some options (not only for updates) are nested deeper behind badly descriptive names but there are more optional settings behind it. Just have to get used to them.

    Certainly a learning curve but not difficult. Kind of weird that what used to take one or two clicks now, at times, takes three or four.

    I got invitation to join the 11 today morning, not sure if I should jump-in or not, I just read a post by someone who said AMD users are forced to do fresh installation. I don't think I have that much spare time to setup every thing from scratch once again - if there was a system crash, I had to but I think I am going to wait for now.

    Don't fall for it. It's a trap!

    I installed Windows 11 awhile ago. My PC didn't pass the compatibility test then but Win 11 did install. I used it for a couple of weeks with no issues but reverted to Win 10 insider because I didn't know what would happen on the official release date. I have an Intel i7 3770 cpu and no TPM. Will I be able to run Win 11 without issues?

    If you are serious about you PC then the very first thing to do is make an image copy. You can use Macrium Reflect (free edition) for this, but you obviously need some backup medium. Once you have done this you can perform the upgrade and try it out. If you don't like it (you should have already done research on the differences), then just restore the image copy.

    The backup or restore of a typical OS partition from one HDD to another is 15-20 minutes.

    There's nothing with AMD that would make it less compatible, small trouble with L3 cache but will be fixed, just practically imperceptible memory slowdown.
