Migrate from Windows 10 to Windows 11

Copper Contributor

Dear all,


We just purchased 30 computers from Dell.

We ask to Dell to enroll these devises in our Autopilot console (as usual) but by mistakes we ask about Windows 10 OS and not Windows 11.


Is there a way from the intune console to mention that I want Windows 11 installed and not Windows 10 when starting these new PCs? I would like to avoid installing Windows 10 and then upgrade to Windows 11 if possible.


Many thanks

Hello @Samppp94,

:no_entry: You can't upgrade Windows 10 or later during the OOBE.
During OOBE it's only Critical driver and critical Windows zero-day patch (ZDP) updates.

The feature update apply as soon as the provisioning is finished.
we recommend you to Create feature update deployment and set the Feature update
Make update available as soon as possible
Create Update ring for Windows 10 and later and set the Feature update deferral period to 0.

Another solution but more restrictive is to use a Windows 11 ISO and upgrade to version on all 30 devices.

Have a good day
Autopilot is not meant as a bare metal installation tool... autopilot will streamline your entra and intune enrollment.... nothing more :) .. (maybe a bit .. but :P) So you need to make sure that just like digycloud mentioned to setup some feature update in intune to make sure those devices will be upgrade to 11 later once the device is in production
