Windows 11 has some pretty strict requirements for security as well as minimal hardware. To install the new Microsoft operating system, your computer must have TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot, and the CPU must be officially supported by Microsoft. The software giant says these are essential because security is paramount in Windows 11.
Recently, GitHub developer AveYo has created a tool that allows you to install Windows 11 without regard to minimum hardware requirements and TPM. In fact, Universal MediaCreation is the tool that AveYo created a long time ago. However, he recently added a script to help it support Windows 11 and bypass the hardware requirements of the new operating system.
According to AveYo’s update, the new version of Universal MediaCreation can:
- TPM Check on the installer can be bypassed using the winpeshl.ini file.
- Override TPM Check on Dynamic Update
When executed, the new script added to Universal MediaCreation will generate a value named “AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU” in the Registry key “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMSetupMoSetup” and set it to 1 or true. The script also deletes the evaliserres.dll file.
BleepingComputer’s testing shows that running the script makes it possible for an unsupported computer to upgrade to the Dev channel build 22463 from build 22449. Previously, this computer was refused an upgrade because it did not meet the hardware requirements.
Currently, the Universal MediaCreation tool is being provided by AveYo for free on GitHub.
