Why Users Are NOT Upgrading to Windows 11? Is Windows 11 a Failure?

Frequent Contributor

According to the latest statistics windows 11 is installed at around 23 % of windows devices/ PCs and windows 10 is installed at around 75 % of them. We can see a big gap between those two OS. So what are the reasons that the users are not installing windows 11? In the below video I will review the main reasons why users are hesitating to install windows 11...

Please, have a look and let me know what do you think: What are the reasons that users are not installing Windows 11?

Hi, maybe someone knows how many percent installed Windows11 in organizations, you should distribute these statistics to home users and separately business.
The main reason is the new hardware requirement.
In the past if you are running a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PC, you could upgrade to Windows 10 with the same hardware.
However, in case of Windows 10, you will need to purchase a new hardware and that is costly.
Totally agree, mentioned this on the video!

Actually I have not run my own statistics but there are plenty of references on internet. But, yes having separate statistics for Organizations and Home Users would give us a better view. 

Exactly right i bought a new pc in 2017 and it won't run 11 so i will be using my pc on ubuntu microsoft will be pestering people to upgrade if they want me to upgrade then they will have to pay for a new pc i am not going out and buying another pc not so soon and it won't be just me i will use ubuntu in my own opinion ubuntu is better.
Exactly Reza, TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0 is a minimum requirement, in order to run Windows 11. Most motherboards from the last decade or even as close as 2-3 years ago only has TPM 1.2. Even then TPM aren’t enabled by default, they have to be manually turned on via control panel.

You can only upgrade or clean install, if you meet all these minimum requirements. This leaves out quite a chunk of IT systems needing to be upgraded. TPM is located at the motherboard

@AmitThapa not bothered will use ubuntu i prefer it to be honest i am used to using ubuntu also so i will use that in my opinion its just as good if microsoft will have to compensate as knowing microsoft they pester users into upgrading i wont be upgrading and migration to windows 11 hasn't been huge and there will be others that won't upgrade especially if they only bought a new pc a few years ago if it isn't broke don't mend it. So if there are others and i suspect there will be migration to windows 11 will be small microsoft will lose customers as people won't be wanting to replace their pc so soon after they only bought their current pc so an alternative operating system will be used i prefer ubuntu in my own opinion its better than windows vista was bad enough now this new windows 11 has asinine requirements.

@AmitThapaYou mean UEFI / BIOS, not the "Control Panel"? Most desktop PCs use a firmware TPM, which of course is entirely different. In the operating system itself it's enabled by default. Sometimes in UEFI / BIOS, it's not. They're talking about UEFI / BIOS settings, which have nothing to do with your choice of operating system. You can enable this on Linux / Unix as well, if you were wondering:

 

"Most motherboards from the last decade or even as close as 2-3 years ago only has TPM 1.2. Even then TPM aren’t enabled by default, they have to be manually turned on via control panel.

 

"The option to enable the TPM may be labeled Security Device, Security Device Support, TPM State, AMD fTPM switch, AMD PSP fTPM, Intel PTT, or Intel Platform Trust Technology." -> https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/enable-tpm-2-0-on-your-pc-1fd5a332-360d-4f46-a1e7-ae6b0c...

@davidpnukOf course you don't have to use this if you don't want to, but you could have easily found a system builder / OEM license, and bypassed the CPU / TPM / Memory check ( which is a glitch in some cases. ) Mine says it's unsupported, and it's way older than yours ( I have TPM 2.x support enabled btw. )  https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-10/cant-install-windows-10-from-usb-drive-cpu-is-i7-7...

 

"Trusted Platform Module 2.0

Trusted Computing Group - Resources -> Search: TPM 2.0 -> https://trustedcomputinggroup.org/resources/?search=TPM%202.0

 

The "PC Health Check app" is low quality, and the site has out-of-date / unreliable information, that's why people have so many problems.

 

"Windows Processor Requirements" -> https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/windows-processor-requirements

 

I just went to this page, looked up my processor, and it says unsupported, which is sooo hard not to laugh at ( I have TPM 2.0, 64-bit Processor, Full UEFI with Secure Boot, well over 8GB of memory, latest WHQL / official WHQL Windows 11 drivers from AMD. Oh nope that's UNSUPPORTED said the bogus "PC Health Check app". It's hit and miss, a mixed result. ) What I'm saying is that you should look at your own hardware specs and then choose whether or not to install it. The other stuff I posted in the links above is obviously correct.

 

This information here is unreliable, probably because they never updated it: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-22h2-supporte...

 

NOTE: Think carefully about what I'm saying, evaluate it for yourself, using your own mental faculties. I'm not trying to contradict anyone, but you could sit down for even a few hours yourself, and verify which SKUs support Integrated / Firmware TPMs. They never even did that, lmao even wikipedia, an unverified / untrusted source, has better information. Why is that? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trusted_Platform_Module#TPM_implementations
