Microsoft has officially unveiled the Windows 11 operating system on 24 June. The official rollout of Windows 11 for the Dev channel for Windows Insider has been live now. More users will get the official update in the coming months. Windows 11 brings many changes under the hood compared to Windows 10, like the Redesigned UI, new taskbar, re-touched icon, and native support for Windows 11. But to be officially eligible for Windows 11, your hardware must have a minimum of 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a chipset clocked 1 GHz or more, a TPM 2.0 chip, and a 64-bit processor.
Windows 11 is also compatible with many low-end systems, but unlike Windows 10, it’s incompatible with a 32-bit Processor. Many users still have a 32-bit Processor and were eagerly waiting for Windows 11, and they’re still unclear whether the Windows 11 OS will run on their system or not.
Can we Install Windows 11 on a 32-bit processor?
Well, Windows 11 won’t be officially run on a 32-bit chipset. Windows 11 32-bit ISO download file will not be available on the Microsoft website. However, all modern-day PCs come with 64-bit chipsets only. Intel and AMD have also haven’t released any of their 32-bit chipsets in the past 19 years. The Intel Pentium 4-bit chipset was the last 32-bit chipset we have seen so far. So, most probably, your hardware will be powered by a 64-bit chipset only.
Bypass Windows 11 64-bit requirement: Is it Possible?
Well, as for the TPM requirement, there are some methods to bypass it and install Windows 11. But for this, there isn’t any method available to bypass this, as this is a hardware-level requirement, and we can’t modify it using the software. So, in the end, if you want to experience Windows 11, you have to look for the new Windows 11 Laptops or upgrade your hardware.
Can we install 32-bit software on Windows 11?
Well, for the hardware minimum requirement, a 64-bit processor is a must. But if you want to use any 32-bit software on it, you can seamlessly use the software on it. You won’t face any problems while using 32-bit software.
