These are the requirements to install Windows 11 according to the leaked version, and there are important changes compared to Windows 10




A few days ago Windows 11 it leaked and we were able to test it. The big leak of Microsoft's new operating system brings numerous surprises, both good and less good in terms of features, and also in terms of installation requirements.



At the very least, we talk about the installation requirements demanded by this build coming to light that it does not have to be the definitive ones of the future Windows 11 that in all probability we will discover next June 24 with the promise of Satya Nadella, the head of Redmond, will be "one of the most important novelties Windows in the last decade ".






If a PC is older than 2016, it may not be eligible to install Windows 11 based on the minimum requirements of the leaked version

Users who have ventured to install the leaked pre-release version of Windows 11 have been able to be successful in installing the system or not so much ... When this happens, the system indicates in English that Windows 11 cannot work on the PC in question and indicates for what reasons. And what are those reasons? The minimum requirements required by the build:




  • The system disk must be 64GB or larger.

  • The PC must support TPM 2.0.

  • The PC must support Secure Boot.

  • There must be at least 4GB of RAM.



When it comes to hard drive size and memory, most Windows 10 users probably shouldn't have a problem installing the new operating system if it finally meets these minimal demands. But yes with TPM 2.0 and, to a lesser extent, with Secure Boot.



Since July 28, 2016, Microsoft made the implementation of TPM 2.0 mandatory to certify Windows 10 computers. Yes or yes was and still is a minimum requirement. Under the acronyms that stand for Trusted Platform Module (Trusted platform module) hides a chip with a secure cryptoprocessor to store encryption keys in order to protect information.




We can check if our PC has TPM 2.0 through the 'Run' tool

That a PC is earlier than that date may be indicative that it does not have this element, although We can confirm this detail using the tool Run which we can access with the shortcut Windows + R. We write the tpm.msc, we cross our fingers and, if a module is found, we will have to see in the lower right part if it is version 2.0. If so, our PC meets the requirement.



About Secure Boot, just emphasize that it is a safe boot mode for the firmware UEFI on the motherboard to prevent any unsigned or certified software from running at system boot. It is brought by Microsoft's OS from Windows 8.



Both technologies have to do with the safety of the equipment And it seems that Microsoft wants to secure it even more in this new version of Windows, as it wanted to do with the doomed Windows 10X, which also required TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot.
