Seriously, I bought this HP Pavilion with Windows 10 preloaded 1.5 years ago.

So basically I cannot even get one upgrade without Microsoft asking me to shop for a new PC.

I cannot believe it did that...

Been switching all my companies to chrome books, chrome bases, and chrome boxes.
With Crossover loaded they run all windows software and they hardly ever break.

That was my last Microsoft PC

So long Microsoft, it's been not so nice knowing you. [:}

Computers more than a few years old will need to do this to install windows 11

“Microsoft recommends against installing Windows 11 on a device that does not meet the Windows 11 minimum system requirements. If you choose to install Windows 11 on a device that does not meet these requirements, and you acknowledge and understand the risks, you can create the following registry key values and bypass the check for TPM 2.0 (at least TPM 1.2 is required) and the CPU family and model.


Name: AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU


Value: 1

Note: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.”

Thank you [notify]Develop[/notify] I did that and ran into some issues.

Instead I converted my PC to a chromebook using:

Runs like a charm, I had previously converted 4 other company computers and since almost everything runs on the cloud they work well for what I need.

Thing is even a dog slow PC flies when you convert it to a Chromebook and the conversion takes only a few minutes once you know how to do it.

I have 4 windows programs I need and for those I used a newer chromebook with Linux and I installed crossover to run the windows programs. Again, it works flawless.
