Windows Issues Warning Regarding Installing Windows 11 On Unsupported Devices (computers with pre-2018 processors):
When Microsoft announced its Windows 11 operating system would be released Oct 5th, it made it very clear that the operating system was designed for devices that meet the operating system’s system requirements.
Recently, Microsoft added a new prompt to the setup of Windows 11 that acts as a waiver if the device does not meet the minimum system requirements of Microsoft’s Windows 11 operating system. See in pic below.
(Remember, Win 10 is supported until 2025, so there is no need to update older Win 10 computers. -Ed.)
