Only pretty new processors allowed. I planned on updating my backup PC first but I7-3770 CPUs are not supported.

You can still install Windows 11 via clean/fresh install but Microsoft won't push updates to machines that are not hardware compliant.

I'd rather keep that PC in Windows 10.

BTW, my Rizen 7 3700X PC rolled back to Win 10 during Win 11 upgrade (i.e. upgrade was aborted).

Installed it on my laptop(11th gen intel) , and after a few frustrating moments after reboot just because i can't move the taskbar to the side (i maximize the use of my vertical space), I'm currently reinstalling windows 10 - would rollback, but i think it's time to clean this laptop up, so might as well do a fresh install

I'm only gonna install windows11, when (if) there's an option to move the taskbar to the side

I finally got to installing Windows 11 on my spare HDD. The PC can dual boot between Win 10 (default) and Win 11. So far it has passed compatibility with the devices in my work.

It's been a month since I installed Windows 11 on my gaming PC which has supported hardware. For the most part, it's been smooth sailing. Because of that, I also ended up updating my NUC11PAHi5 mini PC at the office.

Did a clean install of Windows 11 on the gaming PC and an upgrade from Windows 10 to 11 on the NUC. Windows 11 feels faster and more responsive in both cases, especially the UI animations.

Been running Win11 on my laptop since June and decided to install Win11 on my main rig the day it was officially released and it ran great until a few weeks later when Nvidia Broadcast suddenly stopped working. Tried a bunch of things to make it work again without success so I decided to go back to Win10 but Nvidia Broadcast failed to run again after a few hours - this really baffled me so I backtracked everything I did, beginning from after I clean installed Win10 > drivers > updates > apps > etc. and found out that windows Powertoys was the culprit! Powertoys' Video Conference Mute setting had conflicts with Nvidia Broadcast so to make the story short, here I am again using Win11. Hehehe!

As for performance there I feel no significant difference in 10 and 11, I just like the fresh feel of 11 even though there are a few things here & there I hate about 11.

It's hard to tell the difference in speed between the two. I got Win 11 installed on a HDD. I also got OneDrive enabled which worsens the speed penalty. I am almost tempted to buy a 2nd SSD to dual boot Win 11 from SSD. Crucial P2 2TB at a little less than 10K is tempting. I got some folders backed on OneDrive in Win 10. They become available and synced when I load Win 11. I subscribed to 100GB space for 119Php/ month subscription. So I can't put everything to OneDrive.

Anyone knows how to selectively enable folder backup to OneDrive? It seems all or nothing for Desktop and Documents folders.

me & my son have a problem with RADEON drivers after installing it, it would run ok but after we reboot, W10/ W11, windows will revert to it's own GPU drivers & when we run the AMD console it says its not compatible with the existing driver.

till i found a solution in YT ;-)
