The TPM chip and the 8th generation Intel Core processor are some of the toughest and most controversial requirements to meet. On the other hand, you need a relatively modern CPU and TPM 2.0 chip that is only present in computers after 2016. In the beginning, these two items are necessary to install Windows 11.

Microsoft allows its new operating system to be installed on all devices through an ISO. To do this, you will just have to do the normal installation procedure, indicate that we do not have a compatible computer, press Shift + F10 and type “regedit”. Inside the Windows registry, we go to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEM” and there to “Setup”, create three new keys with the value 1: “BypassTPMCheck”, “BypassRAMCheck” and “BypassSecureBootCheck”.

The problem is that Windows 11 blocks all kinds of updates on computers with TPM 1.2 hardware as of 2011 or later. To avoid this, we have to go to “Regedit”, and there we go to the path “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEM”, “Setup” and then “MoSetup”. In this section, we have to create a “DWORD” called “AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU”, and set the value 1. After that, we must restart the computer.
