In the past couple of days, Microsoft accidentally sent an Insider update for unsupported Windows devices.
You may have noticed in the past few days, that Microsoft made a small mistake in rolling out the update with the 22H2 update just around the corner. The tech giant has rolled out a Windows 11 update for unsupported devices. The company has very strict system requirements when it comes to upgrading to Windows 11, many of the devices that were on the Windows Insider Preview channel for Windows 10 have received a (nice) surprise in recent days.
Windows 11 22H2
We were able to try it out in the editors ourselves, a Windows 10 PC that doesn’t meet Microsoft’s requirements but was signed up for Windows Insider in the preview channel was suddenly asked to upgrade to Windows 11. We installed the update and was able to start immediately with the newer OS on our devices Not supported.
Can I still install Windows 11?
Unfortunately no. Microsoft has indicated that this is a bug and that the company is investigating how this happened. The update has since been pulled, and therefore is no longer available. The update was not installed automatically either, and you still have to confirm as a user.
The tech giant also says that the system requirements for Windows 11 will remain unchanged, although we were able to experience how the operating system works perfectly on our unsupported devices yesterday.
