Windows 11 fails to upgrade because it thinks the person is too old

Many people are having trouble installing Windows 11 despite the fact that it is now available for download. Some people claim to have successfully installed Windows 11 despite seeing a “This PC doesn’t presently satisfy all of the system criteria for Windows 11” error message while others are having no luck whatsoever with the procedure.

Some individuals are prompted to run the PC Health Check app when installing Windows 11, which checks to see whether their PC is compatible with the new operating system, such as if it supports TPM 2.0, a security feature that Microsoft has said PCs need in order to run Windows 11.

The goal is that the PC Health Check will check to see if your PC can run Windows 11. You may next continue with the installation if your PC meets the requirements. If it does not, the app will provide instructions for how to make it compatible.

This might include instructing you to turn on TPM support in the BIOS in some situations. The PC Health Check software should then tell you that your computer is ready, and you can go ahead with the Windows 11 installation process.

The problem is, even after the PC Health Check app states that the device can run Windows 11, the Windows 11 installation app refuses to continue, informing them that “This PC does not currently meet all of the system requirements for Windows 11.”

This is a major bummer, and users who have experienced it have discovered that restarting their PC and reinstalling Windows 11 does not work.

What can you do to help?

The good news is that Microsoft is already working on a resolution, with Microsoft support personnel informing Windows Latest that “We are aware of the problem and are currently working on a solution.”

If you’re having problems with Windows 10, Microsoft wants you to use the Feedback Hub in Windows 10 to provide additional information about the problem and scale – so that it can better understand and solve it. Hopefully, the issue will be resolved as soon as possible.

The TPM requirement makes upgrading to Windows 11 much more difficult than it needs to be; people should not be misinformed that they are unable to upgrade.

Playing the waiting game indicated by more Windows 11 issues demonstrates that it’s a good idea to wait.

There are plenty of Windows 11 problems now since more people install Windows 11 (or try to).

This issue is more aggravating than worrisome because all it does is prevent you from upgrading to Windows 11 — no matter how slowly you upgrade, your PC’s performance will not be affected.

However, it’s another excellent illustration of why you shouldn’t install a new operating system as soon as it is released. Microsoft will hopefully have fixed most problems by then, and the Windows 11 upgrade process should be easy.

So, just relax and wait for these early Windows 11 problems to be addressed. For some people, maintaining Windows 10 may not be an option.
