WIN 11 with current rig

WIN 11 with current rig
« on: December 21, 2021, 06:01:52 pm »
With the current rig what are the chances of a workaround for WIN11? I have the header for a TPM, but with the current BIOS and CPU if appears I am out of luck.  Any info appreciated. Thanks.

Greetings,
As of now no, and unlikely this will change.  I am pretty sure my Z97 system could run W11 also, but its not supported. 

You'll need a 300 series board at minumum. 

I'm turning my Z97 rig into a light duty VMware host for software testing.  Have no desire for W11 at the moment.  I'll check it out eventually.
