The minimum configuration required to install Windows 11 raises some questions. If a 64-bit processor with two cores and 1 GHz is enough to run the new operating system, Microsoft also requires the presence of a TPM 2.0 chip (Trusted Platform Module) dedicated to security. As a result, machines that do not have this module will not, in theory, be able to install Windows 11. A restriction, to say the least, that affects millions of machines around the world.
However, there are ways to bypass the TPM and unlock Windows 11. The first solution is to modify the registry during installation.
When the “Windows Setup” page indicating that you cannot install this version of Windows appears, follow the procedure below:
- Open the command prompt by pressing Shift+F10
- Run regedit.exe
- Create a "LabConfig" entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEMSetup
- Create two entries: "Bypass TPMCheck=dword:00000001" and "BypassSecureBootCheck=dword:00000001"
- Save the changes
A second method is also proposed based directly on the ISO file. This time it's about replacing “appraiserres.dll” with the Windows 10 version of this file from an ISO image. Once the sleight of hand has been done, the image must be recreated using third-party software.
A word of advice, do not perform this procedure on your main machine.
