Re: Upgrading Windows with NVDA

Ron Canazzi

Hi Group,

There is also one issue that I don't' quite understand as far as upgrading to Windows 11.  When I tried upgrading my older Windows 10 machine to Windows 11 as Brian Vogel has suggested, windows itself told me I had passed the test.  But when I then began the upgrade, I got a message to the effect that the process couldn't continue because of some sort of issue with the bios security.  I was told to contact my motherboard producer for further information .

I don't know just what this message meant, but that's something to be aware of.

If your computer is suitable for Windows 11 you should be being told that in the Update & Security settings, Windows Update pane.  In fact, if it qualifies you should have some sort of link that would kick off an in-place upgrade, but being that I don't have a machine where that's the case, I can't say what the exact phrasing on that link is.

If your machine does not qualify for Windows 11, there should be a message that reads, "This PC doesn't currently meet the minimum system requirements to run Windows 11"  There are occasions where that is because a given setting that needs to be turned on is not turned on, as opposed to the hardware not being sufficient.  Directly beneath that message will be another about PC Health Check, and a link Get PC Health Check, which you can activate to have the PC Health Check download and run to verify whether you have insufficient hardware or the hardware is OK but something else needs to be tweaked.

If your computer has an Intel i-series processor it must be 8th generation or newer (a number after the dash, e.g., i5-8493, that is 8000 or higher) to be Windows 11 compatible.  If you already know you have an i-series that's first through 7th generation, you cannot update to Windows 11.
