Where to start

Windows 11 is mainly characterized because it offers the possibility of downloading Android applications to our PC. On the other hand, the appearance of the old Windows 10 system has also been renewed.

In the end, sooner or later, all Windows users will go through this update and, in addition to the minimum requirements that your PC will need, and which we will talk about next, you cannot forget to make a backup of all your files before start with the installation. We know that it is a somewhat tedious step and that many people skip it because installations of this type, in the end, do not usually cause problems, but if something happens, you will lose all your files and, really, it is worth avoiding it, with a simple backup.

First, it is convenient to know if your PC is compatible, that is, if the components it has have the necessary characteristics for the operating system to work correctly.

Minimum requirements

Whenever we want to install an operating system update, the first thing we ask ourselves is what minimum requirements will we need for the system to work properly.

We assume that, if your intention is to make the leap to Windows 11, you are a Windows 10 user. In this case, you may already know that Windows 10 did not need much more than 1 or 2 GB of RAM, and it had versions of 32 and 64 bits, like previous systems. That ended. Now you will have to install the 64-bit version, yes or yes, which will need at least 4 GB of RAM, but well, it is rare that today there are PCs with less RAM, because it is practically essential to play and work with certain programs currently.

Something that you should take into account, perhaps the most, is the issue of the TPM chip, compatible with the Trusted Platform Module 2.0. Surely, if your PC is later than 2016, you will not have a problem, because since that date, this has been mandatory for the hardware of Windows systems, but we recommend that you check it before installing anything, to avoid surprises.

 

In short, here’s what your PC will need to make Windows 11 run smoothly:

RAM memory: 4 GB or more.

64-bit compatible processor with two or more cores of at least 1Ghz

TPM: chip compatible with the Trusted Platform Module 2.0, which is basically a cryptographic processing chip, whose purpose is to improve the security of your computer. 

Firmware with UEFI, which is basically a BIOS with a more comfortable and intuitive appearance, and that supports Secure Boot, what we know as “secure boot”.

The storage required for the installation is 64Gb, which should not be a problem, since it is still the same space that the previous system occupied.

Graphics card compatible with DirectX 12 or later and a screen with at least 9 inches and a definition of 720.

To make all this easier for you, Windows has launched a tool called PC Health Check, which you can download for free from this link (scroll to the bottom of the page) and you can run the tool to analyze whether your computer meets with what is necessary to update the system.

 

Installation

Once you are clear that your PC meets all the necessary requirements, it is time to proceed with the installation. To do this, as with any operating system update, you will have two ways:

Directly from Windows Update, in the system configuration options, if your PC is compatible.

Downloading the ISO image of the operating system, and creating an installation USB, it can also be a DVD but this is quite deprecated.

For convenience, if you are a Windows 10 user, you may prefer to update from Windows Update. If your plan is to do a clean install, perhaps on a new computer, you can do so by downloading the ISO image. The most c t common is to create an installation USB, simply by downloading the operating system from the official Windows page and mounting the ISO image on a USB, which will help you to install the operating system on any PC.

On the other hand, on the Windows website you will also find the following executable: Windows11InstallationAssistant.exe, which you can download, and it will open an installation assistant on your computer. To use this method, you will have to have an operating system on your computer, while with the USB installer you could install from scratch.

Our recommendation is that you make sure that your equipment is fully compatible, and in fact, it is always better that you have a little more than enough specifications, and that you enter the following official link, in order to better understand all the options available to you for the installation so that you can choose the one that is most comfortable for you. We bet on the update from Windows Update, the simplest and most comfortable, without a doubt.
