Planned obsolescence? Windows 11 forces you to have an updated pc

According to the information provided by Windows itself, those who wish to have the new version installed will not be able to do so if their computer is older than 2016, this is because the installation requirements have been changed,

The new Microsoft operating system, in addition to raising the minimum installation requirements, would request TPM 2.0, a feature that provides additional hardware-based security.

Minimum requirements to install Windows 11

  • 2 core processor
  • 4 GB RAM memory
  • 64 GB internal storage
  • Secure Boot
  • RPM 2.0

The first three requirements should not be a problem to install Windows 11 on computers manufactured in the last decade. However, the picture changes with the last two, Secure Boot y TPM 2.0, the latter being the most difficult to achieve in teams with a few years.

Secure Boot is a mandatory security standard since 2013. It is a firmware in charge of verifying the signature of each element of the boot software, including UEFI firmware drivers, EFI applications and the operating system.

This has not been welcomed by many users loyal to the brand, who despite having PCs with good features see how they are forced to buy new equipment to fully enjoy the program.

Already on the web many users are sharing methods and formulating to try to overcome these limitations and be able to update their operating system. / JML
