Microsoft removes uncertified devices from Windows 11 tests

Microsoft has begun removing computers that are not eligible to upgrade to Windows 11 from the Windows Insider Testing Program.

If you're helping a company test a new operating system on a device that doesn't meet the minimum requirements, you might see a message in Windows Update that you need to reinstall Windows 10.

Microsoft warning states: Your device does not meet the minimum requirements for Windows 11. Your device is not eligible for Windows Insider. Please install Windows 10 to participate in Windows Insider in the Release Preview channel.

Testers of the new system this week received messages on incompatible computers on the Dev and Beta channels.

This coincides with the company's official announcement that the release date of the upcoming operating system is October 5th.

The company warned testers at the beginning of the Windows 11 testing phase that something like this could happen. But it still highlights the confusing minimal hardware requirements the company specifies.

Windows 11 testers running the operating system on unsupported devices can use the solution to install the final ISO version. However, the company warned that unsupported devices in this case are not eligible for Windows updates and may contain security fixes.

The company recommends Windows 11 testers who do not meet the minimum requirements to install Windows 10, as this operating system will continue to be supported until 2025.

Many Windows 11 testers are still confused because their PC is not officially supported. Although the operating system may work for several months.

The software giant tried to justify the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11 by talking about security and reliability. However, you only donate items that were sold a few years ago.

Windows 11 raises the bar for basic security at the processor level, and the company has made it clear that it wants to implement TPM-based security methods, UEFI Secure Boot, and virtualization.

Windows 11 will be released on October 5th, and the company will continue to release new upgraded versions of the operating system to testers.

Android apps are not integrated at the time of publication. But Windows Insiders will be able to access this feature in the coming months, which is highly dependent on recent hardware.
