Upgrade offered for computers with no minimum requirements

Microsoft also offers Windows 11 on PCs that are not suitable for upgrade. Although the minimum requirements are not met, users have the option to download the Redmond OS. However, an error message is displayed during the installation.


Some time ago, Microsoft started displaying full screen Windows 11 upgrade banner ads on supported Windows 10 systems. To decline the upgrade, you must click on a small button at the bottom of the screen. However, for a short time, the message appeared not only on compatible devices, but also on PCs that did not meet the minimum requirements. Twitter user PhantomofEarth noted that the render appeared on a virtual machine with only 2GB of RAM, 60GB of storage and no TPM security module.

Microsoft confirms the error

However, there are no comfortable system requirements behind it, but there is a bug. I keep getting an error when trying to accept the offer and set up Windows 11. Microsoft has that now too Certain. Therefore, affected users should not agree to the change. Although the developers have already fixed the bug, it may take a couple of days for the change to reach all devices.

In order to be able to install Windows 11 on a system, a one gigahertz processor with two cores and 64-bit architecture is currently required, as well as four gigabytes of RAM. Microsoft also requires 64 GB of storage space, a second generation security module (TPM) and a DirectX 12 or higher compatible graphics card. In addition, a 720p display over 9 inches is required.


  • Bug: Windows 11 is offered on devices that do not have a minimum requirement.
  • An error message appears when trying to install.
  • The bug has already been fixed, but changes take 2 days.
  • Upgrading to Windows 11 is only possible on compatible PCs.
