The article basically says if it runs on W10 it'll run on W11. Now I read someplace that if it's an old CPU M$ won't provide security updates. So far the problem with W11 is you don't know what lie to believe. Be that as it may, it's still way too early to really give any of this serious consideration.Do I remember correctly or did M$ say W10 would be the last major upgrade?

In the mean time everything is nothing more than speculation. This is especially true when M$ keeps making changes and changes and changes. Just like the rest of you, I intend to install 11 when all these questions are answered AND I can boot from flashdrive when Windows doesn't boot and requires a full restore. No matter how much I googled it, I can't find an answer to my question about booting from flashdrive when W11 refuses to boot.
Quote from: Vasudev on September 04, 2021, 03:20 PMThat's really an odd issue with flash drive not booting with Win 11.
Quote from: humbert on October 13, 2021, 04:08 AMAs you all know by now, everybody keeps talking about Windows 11's restrictions (secure boot, TPM, RAM, etc.). Take a look at this link and you'll see how all restrictions can be easily removed with the latest version of Rufus.Ever since they opened for business in 1981, Micro$oft's strategy has been to impose restrictions but always leave the door slightly open so we computer geeks can go in and eliminate them. This insures that Windows remains on as many computers as possible while at the same time collecting more money from those who don't know better. It is precisely this sort of thing that has kept them at the very top. Why change it? One thing is for sure: I refuse to believe Micro$oft doesn't know what Rufus has done. They sit back and pretend they don't.Incidentally, can you burn the original ISO to a flashdrive to remove the restrictions then create a bootable ISO of the flashdrive with PowerISO or some other program?

In all probability that's what they're going to do.I've asked this many times. I've googled it and have yet to find a satisfactory answer. Suppose you're running W11 with secure boot enabled and your system won't boot? You DO have a backup, but to restore it you have to boot from flashdrive. Is your flashdrive locked out? Could you simply disable secure boot and re-enable it when you're done? What if all you want to do is look at a distro of linux as a live CD?I'm not too clear on TPM either. I looked at my motherboard's manual. All it tells you is the menu item where you can set the TPM module. Is this just switching it off or on, or is there more to it?
Quote from: Vasudev on October 18, 2021, 03:10 PMWhat W11 wants TPM is to enable Disk Encryption, handle password generation/random numbers using discrete TPM used in Business class desktops/laptops. I do have TPM, Secure boot but CPU is 6700 which is unsupported.
