Hi,

 

I have a Windows 10 PC that I am trying to upgrade to Windows 11. I get the message that this PC doesn't currently meet Windows 11 requirements. The processor is not supported - AMD Athlon 3000G with Radeon Vega Graphics. However, when I go to the Microsoft supported processor website (Windows processor requirements Windows 11, version 22H2 supported AMD processors | Microsoft Learn) the AMD Athlon 3000G is clearly there and supported. I have also seen a friends computer with the same processor happily running Windows 11.

 

I have tried a number of fixes including editing the registry adding the 'AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU' line, and also the adding the 'LabConfig' line.

 

I have also downloaded something called Rufus and used that software to download a Windows 11 installation which is meant to bypass the checks. Unfortunately, this also fails with an error: 0x8007000d-0x2000c the installation failed in the safe_os with an error during apply_image operation. I have tried this method as an upgrade from within Windows 10, and also as a clean installation on boot up.

 

Not sure what else I can try - any suggestions would be gratefully received.

 

Thanks.

In this video, i will upgrade Windows 10 to Windows 11 on unsupported computer hardware. Although Windows 11 has a higher system requirement, you may still be able to perform an upgrade on an unsupported computer. The Windows setup has an “appraiser” service that checks to see if your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements for that version. It’s possible to replace the appraiserres.dll file in the Windows 11 setup with one from an older build of Windows 10. In order to replace the Windows 11 DLL with one from Windows 10, you’ll actually need the setup files for Windows 10.

Hi, thanks for your responses.

 

I am now going to be away for several days so won't be able to try anything.

 

However, I will try the above when I return, and I will post the results here.

 

Thank you

UPDATE:

 

So, I tried the following line in an elevated command prompt - schtasks.exe /Run /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser" but it made no difference.

 

I also then tried replacing the appraiserres.dll from a Win 10 setup to the Win 11 setup, as per FreeBooter's video. When I try the setup again, it gets as far as the 'Making Sure You're Ready To Install' screen for half a minute then just disappears and the process stops.

 

I think i'll probably be giving up now, and just stick with Win 10.

 

I wonder if the reason the suggested fixes haven't worked for me is that maybe they are for computers which say they are Win 11 compatible but the install fails, whereas my computer says it is NOT compatible (CPU), even though I think it should be from the Microsoft website.

 

Anyway, thank you all for your help!
