Shane from San Antonio, Texas wants to upgrade his laptop to Windows 11. The only problem is that he has an old Toshiba that runs Windows 8. Sadly, it’s too old to upgrade. On the bright side, he can try to bypass the hardware requirements. To do this, he has to hack the registry.
First, download Windows 11. You’ll get an error message, of course.
Then, press Shift and F10 at the same time. This launches a command prompt.
To launch the Windows Registry Editor, type regedit and press enter.
When the Registry Editor opens, look for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup.
Right-click on the Setup key.
You’ll be prompted to name the key. Enter LabConfig and press enter.
Next, right-click on the LabConfig key.
You’ll want to hit New and click on DWORD (32-bit) value.
Now, you have to create a value. Make sure to name it BypassTPMCheck. Don’t forget to set its data to 1!
We’re not done yet. Next you need to create the BypassRAMCheck and BypassSecureBootCheck values. Next, set their data to 1.
Close the Registry Editor. To close the commant prompt entirely, type exit and enter. This takes you back to the original message saying your PC can’t run Windows 11. Click on the back button to return to the screen prompting you to install Windows 11.
Continue from there to install Windows 11. If you followed these complex steps correctly, you should be able to finally upgrade to the latest and safest operating system!
