Force update to Windows 11 for non compatible device

Download and install the PC health check app

Make a backup of users data.

If TPM 2.0 is disabled then you’ll need to go to BIOS and enable UEFI and secure boot.

If your PC doesn’t meet the TPM (TPM 1.2 is required at minimum) or CPU requirements then you can enable the following reg keys:


New key: LabConfig

New reg keys under LabConfig:

BypassTPMCheck – 1

BypassSecureBootCheck – 1

BypassCPUCheck – 1

Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup create the following key:

AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU – 1

Restart your device and download the Windows 11 en-US ISO. Download. You MUST use the en-US ISO or else you won’t be able to copy the applications as well as data. 

Install the US language pack and set it as default. Remove the en-GB language pack. Mount the ISO and run the setup.exe file. 

Run through the set up. 

Re-install the en-GB language pack and set as Windows language once complete. 

If you struggle with the language pack then you can use the following steps to force the en-US language.

If your files, apps, and settings can’t be kept because of the different language, you can try this way:

Open CMD as an admin.

Run DISM /online /get-intl. If it is not en_US, continue the operation below.

Restart Windows and press Shift to enter Windows Recovery Environment.

Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Command Prompt.

Step 5: Type DISM /image:C: /set-uilang:en-US. Your system language will be set to en-US and you can keep your files during the in-place upgrade.

To go back to Windows 10, select Start  > Settings  > System  > Recovery  > Go back
