    Hello — I have old computers — they all are running windows 10.  The update screen noted that the “hardware on this computer does not support windows 11”

    I was browsing on Ebay for laptops and found an older HP Laptop circa 2010 was for sale and it was running win 11 —

    Does win 11 have a bypass for older hardware when it was installed?

      Win11 can be installed on non-compliant (ineligible) machines using several workarounds. There are Topics on this site with instructions (and on Google as well). If you are considering buying a machine, be sure it actually complies with Win11 hardware requirements if you expect to get long term use.

      The caveat is that you never know when MS is going to block the workarounds and you end up having to install some other OS (or you end with a boat anchor).
