Windows 11’s 2022 Update arrived on September 20, 2022. Initially, several users bypassed hardware requirements and installed the software on unsupported computers. I even installed Windows 11 on an Intel-based Apple MacBook Air.
Named 22H2 during development, this update is packed with features like File Explorer tabs (coming soon), automatically generated captions for any audio content, enhancements to Snap Layouts, and performance and battery life improvements. Also, Microsoft released stricter system requirements, so users who bypassed TPM, Secure Boot, and other requirements are not able to upgrade their PCs. Microsoft doesn’t release significant updates as Windows updates to them.
You can see the screenshot in the following; it seems like getting an error when it is tried to update Windows 11 to version 22H2 manually.
“This PC doesn’t currently meet Windows 11 system requirements.” My PC could not run Windows 11 because of the following hardware requirements:-
- The processor isn’t supported for this version of Windows.
- The PC must support TPM 2.0.
- The PC must support Secure Boot.
Once you ran a small script from GitHub, all errors were gone, and we finally installed the Windows 11 update 22H2. In another way, you don’t have to create a bootable USB by bypassing TPM 2.0 or Secure Boot. The Windows 11 22H2 ISO can be downloaded from the Microsoft server, and you can easily upgrade your old Windows 11 or 10 machine. You won’t lose any personal information during this process.
