Windows 11 on an old computer

I’m pleased with my eight-year-old laptop that’s running Windows 11 despite not meeting Microsoft’s strict hardware requirements. I was able to install it through the Windows Insider Program that allows users to install pre-release versions of the operating system.

Loving a challenge, I wondered if Windows 11 could be installed on my first ever computer. So, I went up into the loft and dusted off my old desktop machine from the 1990s. I haven’t used it for ages, but it served me well for many years.

Long story short, with a little bit of tweaking, I finally managed to get Windows 11 up and running on a computer that’s over 30 years old.

I don’t like to see old equipment go to waste. So, if you need help getting the latest Windows on your historic computer, give me a call.
