I haven't seen yet any remark about a Win11 deinstall/return option to the previous configuration as it is available for the W10 upgrades from Win7 or Win8

Win11 deinstall/return option to the previous configuration
You can go back to Windows 10 with the current Build of Windows 11. It stands to reason this option will be available in the final release version as well.

Here's a video sure to delight videomaster @The Hat !


Roll back article:

https://www.neowin.net/news/not-satisfied-with-windows-11-heres-how-you-can-rollback-to-windows-10/

Of note, the time period to rollback the pre-release Build of Windows 11 to Windows 10 is currently 10 days according to the above video. For Windows 10 it was 30 days. Who knows what the time frame will be with the final release of Windows 11.

Apparently, you can trick Windows 11 into giving yourself as long as you want with this current Build by simply renaming the Windows.old folder to something else so Windows does not delete it after 10 days. Do this after installing 11 and you've got as long as you want before rolling back! Unknown if this will work with the final release of 11.

Another video for the forum's video maven, @The Hat. Enjoy!

My main workhorse computer can’t handle Win 11
I now have reason to doubt that.

The following video details, quite humorously at times, how to install Windows 11 in a notebook that was identified as unsuitable for Windows 11 installation:

  • 32 bit architecture
  • 1 GB RAM
  • No TPM
  • No Secure Boot
Despite all these installation killers, the guy in the video is able to do a couple brilliant workarounds and installs Windows 11. There's even a workaround for MBR vs GPT for @bluestang.

The first ~5 minutes are the workarounds. Then it's a lot of Waiting For Godot because of the crawling 5400 RPM notebook harddrive. Then at ~14:30 he decides to clone the slow drive onto an SSD drive he pulls from his Windows 95 machine!!! and everything goes smoothly and quickly.

While I know @The Hat will want to watch every second of the video, others can skip from the ~5:00 mark to the ~14:30 mark and not miss anything essential.

If you are like @The Hat then you'll want to see this companion video (to the one above) in which the guy increases RAM from 1 to 2 GB's in the notebook. Then he does speed comparisons on opening apps and cold booting with the 5400 RPM drive and the SSD drive.

What a difference a Gig makes.

Deeper dive into TPM - AMD, Intel, motherboards, modules - and Windows 11.

Geek stuff for @The Hat.
