More than 4 in 10 PCs still can't upgrade to Windows 11

Nearly 43 percent of millions of devices studied by asset management provider Lansweeper are unable to upgrade to Windows 11 due to the hardware requirements Microsoft set out for the operating system.

Microsoft made it so that Windows 11 does not install on devices that lack a recent TPM-equipped CPU. It is possible to get around this restriction although it isn't a perfect solution and potentially not long term.

Lansweeper said 42.76 percent of the estimated 27 million PCs it tested across 60,000 organizations failed the CPU test, albeit better than the 57.26 percent in its last test a year ago. Altogether 71.5 percent of the PCs failed the RAM test and 14.66 percent the TPM test.

"We know that those who can't update to Windows 11… will continue to use Windows 10," said Roel Decneut, chief strategy officer at Lansweeper, whose customers include Sony, Pepsico, Cerner, MiT and Hilton hotels.
