Windows 11 will start rolling out on Oct. 5
Microsoft Corporation’s latest operating system “Windows 11” is being released to users yesterday, October 5, 2021. But IT experts say that it will not be able to run on every computer.
The legal users of Windows 10 will be able to upgrade their computer’s operating system for free and convert it to Windows 11.
However, according to IT experts, computers running the following four things will not be able to run Windows 11:
- Computers with a hard disk (C drive) capacity less than 64 GB
- Any computer that has a processor with less than one GHz speed and less than dual core technology and does not have the capacity for 64 bit processing.
- The “Secure Boot” feature has been disabled in Windows (this can be enabled by going to BIOS settings).
- Version 2.0 (ie TPM 2.0) of Windows’s advanced security feature “Trusted Platform Module” is disabled (in which case a message will appear on the screen when Windows is installed and the installation will be stopped. Can be enabled by going to the BIOS settings).
In addition to all these, there are other conditions that are necessary for a successful installation of Windows and for it to run on the system, such as:
- 4 GB RAM
- Competitiveness of graphics cards with DirectX 12 or higher versions with WDDM 2.0
- 720 pixel display with a diagonal length of more than 9 inches and 8-bit color channel support
If a computer does not meet these requirements, Windows 11 will not be able to be installed on it.
