This tutorial is for "Windows Insider Program on Windows 11”If you have a PC without support TPM 2.0.

After which Windows 11 is installed on a PC or Mac which does not meet the hardware requirements imposed by Microsoft, to be exact TPM and UEFI support, on the newly installed system we will receive updates through Windows Updates. PC will still be limited to installing updates beta or development through Windows Insider Programme.

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 restriction is typical of computers that used bypass methods to successfully install Windows 11 on computers that do not meet system requirements to Microsoft.

Fortunately, there is a method developed by the community Windows, through which we can enroll in Windows Insider Program and a computer with Windows 11 which does not support TPM or UEFI.

If during the update Windows 11 Insider Preview primiti eroarea “Download Error 0x80888002 ”, You can find the solution on this link.

From my point of view, the versions beta (Insider Preview) este bine sa le instalati numai pe PC-uri care nu sunt folosite pentru scoala sau productivitate. Oricand pot sa apara erori, bug-uri sau anumite drivere sa nu mai fie compatibile.
