Preparing for Insider Preview Builds of Windows 11

Copper Contributor

I'm trying to prepare my Windows 10 system for the upcoming Insider Preview builds of Windows 11. However, I'm not sure what steps I need to take to prepare my system for the transition. I've tried searching for guidance online, but I'm not finding any clear information on what specific settings or configurations I need to change.


Can anyone provide a step-by-step guide on how to prepare my Windows 10 system for the Insider Preview builds of Windows 11? Are there any specific settings or configurations that I need to adjust, such as drivers or software updates? Are there any potential issues or risks that I should be aware of when making the transition?

I'm a Windows Insider since the very beginning and I've tested many Windows 10 and 11 Insider builds.
I would suggest you to install the Insider builds within a virtual machine: it will allow you to use and test every new build and reduce any potential issue.
You should first upgrade Windows 10 to Windows 11 on your computer. Make sure it meets the system requirements. After that, you can follow this guide to enroll Windows Insider Preview:
