Instead of reading the list of Windows 11 system requirements and then thinking about what Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 are. You do not need to know this. In this guide you will learn the easy way to check if your computer can use Windows 11.
See if your computer can run Windows 11
- Download the PC Health Check app and install it from the Microsoft website. Here is the link. Using this app, you can scan your computer’s health, and it will tell you if your computer meets the hardware requirements of Windows 11. If so, you can upgrade Windows 10 to Windows 11 for free.
- Locate the downloaded file, run the WindowsPCHealthCheckSetup.msi settings file, and follow the on-screen instructions to install it.
- After you have successfully installed it, click on the Finish button and the application will open automatically, otherwise you can open it from the Start menu.
- You can simply click the “View Now” button to see if your computer meets the Windows 11 requirements. Other than that, you can see your system information on the home screen of the PC Health Check app.
- After a quick examination, it will show you the result, as you can see that my computer cannot run Windows 11 because the Secure Boot option does not exist.
Windows 11 minimum system requirements
The minimum hardware required to install Windows 11 on your computer in words is:
- Processor: 1 GHz with at least 2 core points, must be 64-bit processor or system on a chip (SoC)
- Memory: 4 GB RAM
- Storage: at least 64 GB is better
- System company: UEFI, Secure Boot required
- TPM version 2.0
- Graphics card: DirectX 12 compatible graphics / WDDM 2.x
- Screen: more than 9 inches with HD resolution (720p)
If your computer does not support Windows 11, do not worry, just use Windows 10. Microsoft will still send updates to Windows 10, otherwise you will get a new computer.
Most of the computers get a safe startup message when they look at hardware requirements. I’m sharing a guide on how to fix and install Windows 11 without Secure Boot and TPM.
