The option to upgrade was first spotted on Reddit (via Neowin), and some users reported that upon clicking the install option, their computers upgraded successfully to version 22H2 even though the hardware didn’t meet the minimum requirements. For example, in the thread, someone claimed they were able to install the new version of Windows 11 on a Surface Book 2 using the Intel Core i5-7300U processor. Another person confirmed that the upgrade was available on their 4th-Gen Core i7 processor laptop. I can also confirm that this is the case, after enrolling an unsupported Windows 10 computer in the Release Preview Channel and receiving the notification to upgrade to Windows 11 22H2. Although it could have been a piece of good news for many users, Microsoft has already confirmed that it’s a bug affecting the deployment of version 22H2. The company has also clarified that the hardware requirements haven’t changed, and they are investigating the situation to fix the problem. If you upgraded your computer, it’s recommended to roll back immediately. Otherwise, the previous installation files will be deleted from the computer after ten days, and you will need to perform a clean install of Windows 10.
