Microsoft has specified the minimum hardware requirements for supporting Windows 11, which has created a huge confusion and disappointment among users. many high end users have been kicked out of the minimum requirements. Users, who have recently invested in a decent Windows 10 PC will have to purchase a new PC if they want to use Windows 11. The TPM 2.0 requirement is another requirement for getting Windows 11. Microsoft has explained ample times, the reason for this stringent hardware requirements. Security will be the main priority for Windows 11
Despite the minimum requirements being mentioned, many users registered to Windows 11 Insider program. Now, the sad news is that those users, who signed up for Windows 11 Insider Program from their non-compliant Windows PC, will now be kicked out of Windows Insider program.
Those users will get the following notification:
“Your PC does not meet the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11. Your device is not eligible to join the Windows Insider Program on Windows 11. Please install Windows 10 to participate in the Windows Insider Program in the Release Preview Channel.“
This is not at all a welcoming change for users. This is because, when Microsoft first unveiled Windows 11 in June, 2021, they announced PCs not meeting the minimum hardware requirements for the Windows 11 will not be eligible for Preview builds on both the Beta and Release Preview channels. However, users enrolled on the Dev Channel will only be allowed to receive builds until the public release of Windows 11.
