The message I got was I need an 8th generation i7.

This was a high end PC when I built it,  I’ve no desire to spend a small fortune building a new one when my existing one is 100% fine, will give win11 a miss.

There will be thousands and thousands of incompatible PCs out there.

Does it actually refuse to install, as opposed to just claiming on the box that it is not compatible?

For now, you can even install without TPM...

The MS insider won’t let me download it as my pc is incompatible.  Sure there’s probably download links elsewhere, but as I’m in the MS insider program, I’d have thought it would let me download it if they wanted me to run with my specs.

Just watched this YouTube vid which says all 7 of the PC’s in his house are incompatible, as are many ones available to buy today on the likes of Newegg or Amazon.

The trick for now, is to use "windows to go" feature from a compatible device. i don't know how, exactly...but I did read about it somewhere.

I've always used Linux to download Windows iso files from Microsoft, mainly to avoid all the butt sniffing they like to do. Does that not work for Windows 11?

I guess it still might not install though.

coromonadalix:
search for uup download website...  it will work with aria2 to download the win 11 files and compile an iso or an multi iso ... and a special script was supposed to be available to help install w11 on older non tpm machines .... they hack / mod boot.win and the machine detection file(s)

Done that on an old i5-7400,  b250 chipset   work pretty well,  havent tried to update it to the latest builds

I always wonder why people 'worry' about supposed "Support Endings" !!
There's still numerous people still using Win-7, and are perfectly happy with it, considering their individual 'needs'   :-+
No more support??... great!!... No more forced nagging downloads/upgrades for an older system to constantly churn over!!

Ok, you need certain security updates, etc., but in the end Win-10 can be updated as far as you wish to go, and we delete
and dis-able all the CRAP that was in it, (as we all now know how to!!), and it will function fine for MANY years to come !   :-+
For crying out loud, probably 80% or more 'computers' (laptops) are only used by gaming youngsters, and most of the rest
at home are only surfing the Net, sending Emails, and watching Youtube... (& Porn?).  There is only a relatively small portion
of us that are into complex spreadsheets, coding, graphics & countless other real tech usage. We are not talking about the
likes of National Security, or the Space Administration here...  It will all be ok!!!   :phew:

Shell corporations and front end corps will soon take over and
offer you a subscription of each and every piece of it..

I don't know what it's like in Brazil, but maybe tomorrow, when you wake up.... you see the sun shining, and hear the birds
singing, and think "This is going to be a lovely day!"...  Only stirring mate...    8) :-+
