Microsoft confirms false “This PC can’t run Windows 11” error

This PC can't run Windows 11 false

If you have a supported device, but you’re seeing the error
“This PC doesn’t currently meet all the system requirements for
Windows 11” on the Windows Update page, you’re not alone.

With Windows Insiders, Microsoft has been testing a new feature
that’ll tell you Windows 11 compatibility status directly in
Windows Update. The new message in Windows Update will give you
“This PC can’t run Windows 11” or “this PC can run Windows 11”
status right there.

The message is a convenient and more straightforward
alternative to PC Health Check app and other third-party tools.
However, there have been some bugs along the way. The issue
that is currently plaguing the Windows Update on Windows 10 is
the ability to accurately report Windows 11 compatibility

As seen in the screenshot below, when users with a compatible
device check for updates, Windows 10 incorrectly reports the
error message “This PC doesn’t currently meet all the
system requirements for Windows 11

PC doesn't meet Windows 11 requirements

The error is appearing on PCs eligible for Windows 11 upgrade
and it doesn’t appear to be widespread, according to a number
of reports seen by us. The issue has been reported by our
readers and users in the Feedback Hub:

PC Health Check says that PC can run Windows 11. But
Windows Update still says that “this PC doesn’t currently meet
all the system requirements for Windows 11”. Restart and Check
for Updates do not help.

The false reporting prevents Windows 11 upgrade on supported
hardware, but users can still choose to download and install
the new operating system via Installation Assistant or
Windows 11 ISO.

Thankfully, for those being affected by the issue, Microsoft
has confirmed that this is a known issue and that the company
is actively investigating the matter and working on a fix.
Hopefully, Microsoft will be able to address server-side issues
with Windows Update which is resulting in false Windows 11

“We are aware of the issue, and we’re currently working for a
fix,” Microsoft’s support staff told us.

It’s worth noting that the false compatibility status is being
reported not only through Windows Update but also on
Microsoft’s specifications page.

Microsoft is advising users to submit the report in the
Feedback Hub to help the company determine the root cause.

Windows 11 rollout requirements

In addition to the new processor and TPM 2.0 requirements,
you’ll also need Windows 10 version 2004 or later to see the

Additionally, it must have the
September cumulative update installed. If you do not have
the latest version of Windows 10, Windows 11 notification
wouldn’t show up on Windows Update.

Before upgrading to Windows 11, make sure that you turn off the
VBS feature to reduce
performance and gaming issues.
