To be able to run Windows 11, PCs will have to meet some relatively strict hardware requirements compared to previous versions of Windows. If you want to get the official Windows 11 update through Windows Update, you'll need an Intel 8th Gen CPU or AMD Zen 2 or later that supports Secure Boot, UEFI, and TPM 2.0. You'll also need at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
If the CPU does not meet the requirements, Microsoft allows users to upgrade Windows 11 manually via ISO file. However, Microsoft warns that this installation will leave the PC in an "unsupported" state and may not receive the patch via Windows Update. Microsoft recommends that old PC users continue to use Windows 10, which will continue to be supported until October 2025.
