Windows 11 officially released on October 5th and you can now upgrade to the release build.
That's why in this article i want to show you Latest Method of how you can upgrade to Windows 11 entirely for free.
Whether your PC meets the minimum system requirements or not.
Obviously it's better if your PC meets these system requirements, but if it doesn't, there's a workaround.
Windows 11 is free to upgrade to for all Windows 10 users, and it's very simple to do.
I'll be walking you through all the steps and I'll also be leaving all of the links down below. All right, let's check this out.
Have the minimum system requirements
Now, the first thing you want to do is just make sure that you have all of the minimum requirements for Windows 11.
So I'll link this down below, but you can essentially either go on the page and make sure that you have the minimum system requirements on your PC.
Now, if you're not sure, you can also use the PC Health Check app, which I have downloaded.
And once you open it up, you can click on "Check Now" and it will check to see if your PC meets the Windows 11 requirements.
Once you're certain your PC meets the requirements, you can download Windows 11.
Don't have minimum system requirements
If your PC does not qualify, don't worry, it's not the end of the world. You have two different options. The first option, you could simply stay on Windows 10.
Microsoft has stated that they're going to continue supporting Windows 10 through 2025.
So that's one option but let's say that you really want Windows 11.
You can get Windows 11 even if it states that your hardware is not capable of running it and the work around is you download the ISO.
When you download the ISO, that'll bypass these system requirement checks. So are there any downsides?
Well Microsoft has stated that you might not get security or driver updates if you take this path.
Now it could be that Microsoft just said that to limit any liability by saying hey we'll support all PCs so it's a risk you'll have to take but there is a path to get Windows 11.
So all you want to do is go on the Download page and we're going to have three different options on how we can download and install Windows 11.
And we're just going to be using the Installation Assistant because we've already used this PC and we want to do it in the fastest way possible.
We don't need to use any sort of USB drive or anything. We can just download the installer straight onto this computer.
Now, before you click on Download Now, you just want to quickly read the Before You Begin.
So you want to, once again, make sure you have all the requirements, which includes a Windows 10 license, because this is a free upgrade from Windows 10.
And if everything is good to go, you just want to click on "Download Now", and the installer is going to download.
Once the installer has downloaded, you just want to open it up and you want to click on "Yes" for making changes and the installer is going to run.
Now, once the installer has opened, you want to just click "Accept and Install", and it's going to both download and install Windows 11.
And once everything is installed, you're going to have Windows 11 on your computer.
It does look very different, and there's a few immediate changes you can notice, such as the change in the UI, as well as this new widgets button.
