Microsoft warns against software upgrades if you take an alternate way of Windows 11 installed on incompatible hardware.

Microsoft lets you use the Insider program for Windows 11 beta or load it via an ISO generated via the integrated Media Creation Tool. But you won’t receive the critical updates to continue operating the Windows 11 safely when you choose the latter approach because your computer is not in the supported list.

The Verge confirmed that non-supported PCs would not be updated regularly on Windows. Neither security patches and drivers may be provided by Microsoft.

Microsoft has a history in which support drivers are randomly drived even for its so-called pensioned systems. Hoped the business would follow that strategy, at least in terms of necessary safety patches, for unsupported Windows 11 hardware down the line.

But you don’t bet on it, in particular if you need to receive a reliable copy of Windows 11 every day. Obviously, if you are the type of person who would try and install an ISO first, you may always do your utmost to ensure that the newest updates for compatible systems remain up-to-date for Windows 11.

Microsoft is speculating that this particular method is being followed to induce Windows customers to upgrade their hardware irrespective of necessity. And it cannot be concluded because PCs with CPUs older than Intel’s 8th-gen are only supported with limited support. The first-generation AMD Ryzen CPU is not in the supporting component list either.

You may want to use the PC Health Check Tool, available for Windows Insiders, if Microsoft officially supports your system. The business has just updated it to inform you that your PC supports Windows 11 officially. At least 1GHz or higher CPU, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage needs are included. Devices also need the Trusted Platform Module version 2.0. (TPM).
