Windows 11 will be rolling out next month, and its requirements have mostly settled down by now. The latest PC Health Check app has some misinformation about the user’s PC compatibility. Microsoft is still allowing users to install Windows 11 on “incompatible” devices, but there’s a warning that will let you know you’re on your own when it comes to security and warranty.
Microsoft clarified the latest PC Health Check and minimum system requirements only show the computers that are eligible to upgrade to Windows 11, specifically Windows’ built-in system upgrade utilities. While not all computers are running Windows 10 today will fit that bill, there’s still a way to get Windows 11 legally.
The latest Windows 11 installer in the Beta version will show a warning to users forcing the installation of the operating system on “unsupported hardware.” But, the potential damage that isn’t covered by warranty isn’t exactly out of the ordinary. Some users reportedly if there’s worry that the PC won’t be entitled to receive updates either.
Windows has announced the consequence of installing Windows 11 on supported devices. However, it’s not confirmed officially, but some analysts think it’s a kind of scare tactic to cover its legal bases.
There’s still a debate over Microsoft’s hardware requirements on Intel and AMD processors to be officially supported by Windows 11. Users who have unsupported PCs will go to the unofficial route to install Windows 11, but the consequences are they will get malware and attacks, which, in turn, could give Windows 11 a lousy name, regardless of a waiver.
