    Microsoft have re-released the PC Health Check Tool for Windows 11 compatibility.
    This utility now comes with additional information based on the system in question.

    Revised version 2.3 available over on:

      The main limit seems to be Microsoft dropping support for what, I imagine, are the majority of processors currently in use.

      Here are the lists of supported processors:

        I couldn’t find any of my computers on those two lists: Intel Core i7-4770 and Intel Core i5-4440, both Haswell chipsets, Intel Core i7-7700HQ (not yet 4 years old); and I didn’t expect to find my 10 year old Intel Core i5-2450m laptop. The 7th Gen. laptop is running Windows 10 Home 21H1, while the other three pc’s are running Windows 7 x64 SP1. The Haswell processors are great Intel processors; and I truly love the two desktop computers running on them. I guess I won’t be upgrading even my Windows 10 laptop that I’ve only had for 3.5 years to Windows 11 then. The Windows 7 pc’s all have Chrome as the default browser and have Microsoft Security Essentials for firewall and virus/malware protection; and I only get email through the browser and email websites. I’m not a gamer and don’t use Office or cloud storage, just Works 9, which no longer accesses the internet.

        Figure the majority of my clients will run their systems until 10 drops out of support and then seriously evaluate going to Linux or Mac. Most are using iphones so Mac won’t be totally foreign to them. So be it. I’ve been totally bored by Windows since XP anyway!

      When you run WindowsPCHealthCheckSetup, it should show your system is Windows 11 ready.
      I have Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-9400 and upon a quick inspection this chip was not listed as Windows 11 friendly nor would WindowsPCHealthCheckSetup show as a green light. If you have Intel chips and have difficuty with WindowsPCHealthCheckSetup. try the following steps:

      1. Download and read:

      2. Make a backup, as you will be modifying the BIOS

      3. Reboot your system into the BIOS

      4. Go to Settings\Security\Trusted Computing

      5. Modify only the following three entries to show (nothing else in the BIOS requires change):
      Security Device Support [Enabled]
      TPM Device Selection [PTT]
      Device Select [Auto]

      6. Save & Exit

      Performing the above described steps allowed WindowsPCHealthCheckSetup to complete successfully.

      Microsoft has temporarily removed this tool. After feedback, they decided they need to revamp it to provide more detail.
