The watermark reads, “System requirements not met. Go to Settings to learn more,” similar to the watermark the company uses for preview builds available in Windows Insider Program. In addition, the same message will be available in the Settings app with a link to get more information about the requirements. Although Windows 11 increases the hardware requirements to improve the system security, it’s been possible to bypass the TPM 2.0, Secure Boot, and other components with a few workarounds (including a Registry hack posted by Microsoft), to allow many capable computers to upgrade to the latest version of Windows. However, the new warning message further indicates that the company does not want you to use Windows 11 on any hardware configuration. If you install Windows 11 on unsupported hardware, you can remove the “System requirements not met. Go to Settings to learn more” watermark by turning off the UnsupportedHardwareNotificationCache key in the Registry. All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied.
