Windows 11 comes with special and different system requirements than Windows 10. This situation, which has killed millions of computers, has caused a torrent of criticism.

However, despite these limitations, it is possible to run Windows 11 on unsupported devices. This reality does not satisfy Microsoft even that the change has just appeared. It certainly will not please everyone.

The latest version offered by the Windows Insider Program introduces this new feature. Users were unpleasantly surprised when they discovered the text on the desktop in the lower right corner ” System configuration not met “.

Machines that meet the requirements provided a 99.8% crash-free experience that is effectively managed by their manufacturers. “OEMs and IHVs through recent driver update management. Additionally, in unsupported hardware applications, the probability of crashes increases by 17%, and for proprietary applications, we see 43% more crashes.”
