Jon Freeman Tech: They lied, Here's Windows 11 (221* d) RE: Tech: They lied, Here's Windows 11 10 Oct 21


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.
