Cannot upgrade from Windows 10 to 11 from USB and keep files and software, has to be done from file set on hard drive. Now that won't install - I think perhaps MS is now putting something more in ISO to stop old PCs upgrading to Windows 11.

Good luck, I rolled back to Windows 10 last night because I wanted to try the registry change method for Windows 11 installation on an old PC as recommended by MS. I tried from a mounted file set on the hard drive after putting in the registry changes, but that didn't work so next I'll delete the registry changes and boot from mounted file set on a usb drive, then at the fail message I can get to X:sources command prompt from shift+f10 and redo the registry changes, but I'm not too optimistic.

Interesting question, Dave. A couple of programs I like that are not straightforwardly (there is a KDE port) ran on Windows are Digikam and K3b but I'd probably find Windows alternatives I like. Mythtv could be a problem but Kodi would probably do me if I just wanted a front end on a Windows platform and I would want to run the backend on a Linux machine.

On my own drift... I swapped what had got relegated to the spare because of some problem and I found I'd forgotten was a Ryzen 5 system for my desktop, exchanging a couple of bits from the latter. I now have a dual boot Leap 15.3/Win 11 PC as my Desktop PC.

I'm not sure how often I'll boot into Win 11 but at least it's there...

Meanwhile, under the TS (Techie-Shit) label:
The Best Part of Windows 11 Is Its Linux

Windows 10 has been able to run Linux for some years but I could never see what use it was for a desktop user. It was command-line only: maybe running ffmpeg to process sound files? Windows 11 adds a graphical interface, which makes it more useful. Are there any Linux-only music or video programs that would make it worthwhile? And if there are why would you not just use Linux?

You could run these games under Hyper-V in Windows 10. But I've no idea whether, if you then upgraded to Windows 11, it would leave your Hyper-V installation alone.

It ought to. I've not used Hyper-V but I run a slide scanner under Windows 7 in a virtual machine (vbox) under Linux, and it's unaffected by an update to the Linux release.

And I don't know whether it would be more effort than what you do now.

It's clear from all the reviews that Windows 11 is not a major change from Windows 10; it could have been called Windows 10.1. The main visible change is to the user interface - the start menu, etc. The main benefits are invisible: improved hardware-enforced security, if your computer is new enough.

If my wife's Windows 10 laptop met the hardware requirement I would upgrade it - not immediately, but in a few months time. It doesn't, so Windows 10 is good until 2025.

Aside from all the non-standard methods of installing it, I am unclear from what I read whether an upgrade will require you to have a Microsoft account if you don't already. The Home vs Pro page I posted says that it's a requirement for Home but not Pro. A clean install doesn't require it - you can just ignore the request, the same as Windows 10. But an upgrade?

Well I’ve already read enough Techie-shit in this thread to convince me to steer clear of Win 11, even though both Dell and MS keep telling me my new laptop is up-to-snuff for the free ‘upgrade’.

I don’t want to have to screw around the way you guys are doing, I just want a computer that does the straightforward, everyday stuff I tend to do, with a minimum of fuss and no farting around, crashes, work-around, yadda yadda. My laptop is there to serve me, not vice-versa.

Win 10 is chugging along on my m/c very happily and I understand how to use it. I’ll stick with it for a year or two until all the nonsense with 11 has been straightened out.

The usual disclaimers apply......IMHO, YMMV etc.

Good for you! The crashing is a pain, happened to me when using the Assistant so I've done it manually ever since - possibly half a dozen times now. I found the most reliable way is to download the iso to the machine - it won't fit on a USB with a FAT32 file system, then extract to a new folder.

Well I found that I did have a Win 11 compatible PC after all. I put a Win 10 disk from another PC in it and tried to upgrade. It took me a while but, for now, I do have a working Win 11 system.

I can’t say I’m impressed with the Windows Health Check which was downloaded following SRS’s link.

In the first instance rather than telling me what was wrong, it just gave me a vague message along the lines of “To see if this PC is compatible either check the specifications or ask the manufacturer”. I think that resolved when I updated the BIOS.

Having got the all clear I used the Assistant to install. This kept crashing at around 75%, The error number produced differing suggestions as to the problem and my solution came around in an odd way.

The first solution I looked at involved partitioning and I installed Aomei Partition Assistant. This software for some reason had a Win 11 compatibility checker. Running that one told me I was not compatible because of lack of DirectX 12 and something else.

I found the Nvidia GT210 graphics card I had (for my Linux preferences) been using would not support DirectX 12. Anyway I changed things round to use the onboard graphics, installed the AMD drivers and both checks then agreed I was ready to upgrade.

It went though this time.

I tried something different - made a clone of the Windows 10 SSD on my main PC and installed it on a spare old PC of 2011 vintage, then downloaded the Windows 11 ISO from the MS download page. Once downloaded, I extracted the file/folder set, copied then opened in Notebook the appraiserres.dll file (situated in the Sources folder).

I then deleted all instances of TPM and UEFI and saved the copy back to the Sources folder.

Windows 11 then installed without deleting data and software!!

"DISM can be used with older Windows image files although it cannot be used with images that are more recent than the installed version of DISM."

So I think my guess was correct. I suspect that DISM gets added to in every version of Windows. And my suggestion probably wouldn't work: I doubt if DISM.exe is a stand-alone executable; it looks complicated enough to require DLLs, which would have to come from Win 11 too.

A Windows 11 installation image, when booted, runs Windows 11, albeit a skeleton version.

"Didn't work" in what way? What did it do? Do you not get a message?

One possible problem is that if you had booted the iso it would have got wism.exe from that iso - i.e. it would be a Win 11 version of wism. As it is you're running a version from whatever version of Windows you are running. What is that?

You could try running dism from the iso:
E:/some_path/dism.exe /apply imge ...
You'd have to search for it to discover the path.

Downloaded a Win 11 iso at just over 4.1Gb which was accepted by a usb drive, but in reality probably just under 4Gb. But although set to boot from usb in the bios, it would not. However a mounted version has now booted, and happily went to the command screen at the install error with shift+f10.

So it. now sits at X:Sources awaiting diskpart.

C|Net pushed this via email today:

Fix the 'this PC can't run Windows 11' error: 4 types of problems you could have
We found four ways to work around the pesky Windows 11 installation error. You may be able to get the download by enabling TPM and Secure Boot.

If you saw that your PC is not compatible with Windows 11, it may be because your system doesn't have two security settings turned on, Secure Boot and TPM 2.0. Here's how to do it.

Microsoft started a phased rollout of Windows 11 Tuesday. But you probably won't get Windows 11 just yet. If you're planning on downloading the new OS on your existing PC, you might run into some speed bumps due to the system requirements for the new operating system. (Here's how to download Windows 11 and how to create a Windows 11 install drive.)

If you've tried installing Windows 11 Insider Preview or using the Microsoft PC Health Check app and were greeted with an error message reading, "This PC can't run Windows 11," your system might not have two essential security settings turned on: Secure Boot and TPM 2.0. (Here are two other things you must do before downloading Windows 11.) Many modern computers and processing chips from Intel and AMD have these features built in, and both are now required for all machines running Windows 11.

Once you've downloaded the PC Health Check app, you can click Check Now to begin the scanning process. The app will tell you whether your computer will support Windows 11, or what it's missing, and you can click See All Results for more information.

If your machine is new enough to support both, enabling TPM (short for Trusted Platform Module) and Secure Boot is often quite easy. No special skills are needed, and you'll just be clicking through menus. If you've never heard the words "BIOS menu" you might feel out of your element, but don't be intimidated. With a little patience, any first-timer can do this.

Here's what you need to know.


Follow the rest of it at the link.

I'm unfamiliar with the Windows commands (or for that matter any command line partitioning) but it didn't look that impossible to me, bonzo.

One thing I might question is what you do if you disk already had partitions but I'd probably use gparted live to set the partition table type and delete any existing partitions. I could even try to prepare the disk with new partitions that way. Going by his example, I think the first partition would need to be fat32 sized at 512Mb and the rest of the disk would be a ntfs partion. With a larger disk, you could opt to create more than one suitably sized partitions rather than one big one. Once created, the fat32 partition would need boot and esp flags set. I think Windows would assign drive letters which you would need to work out on booting to the ISO.

(I'm never sure whether adding ??? to a statement like that is intended to turn it into a question. B3L does it too.)

Anyway, a PC without an existing copy of Win 10 does not qualify for Win 11. Theoretically you should buy a copy - £100 at least for a legal copy. It's usually cheaper to buy a PC with Windows installed than without an OS, or with Linux pre-installed.

If it's like Win 10 you can just install it and use it without activating it. But unlike Win 10, Win 11 requires you to have a MS account - you can't be a local user (or so I've read) - so that might be tricky.

I can't see what benefits Win 11 brings over Win 10. The hardware security features (the 'Secured-Core PC security baseline' in the Register piece) is worth having, but it's mostly in Win 10 already and depends on having up-to-date hardware, including TPM 2. Maybe Android support, when it arrives, if you have a MS tablet.

My wife's laptop works well on Win 10, and won't run Win 11 because it's too old. I'll ignore Win 11 until 2025. (It's a Thinkpad so it will probably still be working fine.)

I’ve found Win-10, in particular the most recent revision, perfectly fine for my purposes - but then I don’t try to be ‘clever’ by outwitting the system and using outlandish software, I just use Win-10 and standard software packages in the way they’re intended to be used, for surfing, basic home-office, photo and video-editing, and recording purposes.

I’m praying that Win-11 won’t try to self install on my brand-new Win-10 Dell laptop - I have no intention of taking the free ‘upgrade’ until a few updates have happened and, hopefully, the gremlins have been sorted out.
