Windows 11 is a hot topic in the global technology community in the past few days. Many Windows users now have a need to install this new version of the operating system on their PCs to experience the exciting changes and additions soon. However, the minimum hardware requirements from Microsoft can be a big barrier.
This is a situation that many Windows users are facing, especially for those who have too old PC systems (which do not support TPM 2.0), as well as plan to install this developing operating system in the future. virtual machine.
Fortunately, Microsoft seems to be making an exception for members of the long-term Windows 10 Insiders program. Specifically, Microsoft will allow Windows 10 Insiders users to install the Dev version of Windows 11 even on a PC system whose hardware configuration does not meet the minimum requirements.
However, with that said, you’ll need to join the Windows 10 Insiders program by June 24, in order to enjoy this “privilege”. That is, if you just signed up for Windows 10 Insiders now, it’s too late.
In theory, even with unsatisfactory hardware, you could still join the internal Windows Insider program. But you will be pushed to the Release Preview channel. This channel will usually receive very few new builds.
However, there is a simple trick (with risks involved, of course) that can help you get around this limitation, simply by making a few tweaks to the registry.
Note: This is only necessary if you are a new Insider and want to join Dev Insider using old hardware.
1. First, join the Insider program and select the Release Preview ring. This will be your only option.
2. Reboot the system, then open Registry Editor.
3. Then navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsSelfHostUISelection
4. Change the text in the key UIBranch Fort Dev
5. Change the text in the key ContentType Fort Mainline

8. Change the text in the key BranchName Fort Dev
9. Change the text in the key ContentType Fort Mainline
10. Change the text in the key Ring Fort External
