In October, Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 version 21H2, otherwise known as October 2021 Update.

Yes I am on the (Dev Channel) of Win 10 Home. I have had 21H2 for about a month without any issues.

Just received an update today and tried to research it. KB5005611

Trying to find information on that one update led me to believe 21H2 is for servers. Presently I am getting a background update to Visual Studio 2019.

Should I be concerned?

Thanks for the link @toe_head2001

Usually the link in Settings/Updates takes me to that page. Sorry, page not found is all I get.

I'm not sure why you'd think it's for servers.

Has anybody upgraded to Windows 11 yet.?

If so, how is it.?

 

Yes, I've been using Windows 11 since the end of June.  It's not a huge upgrade, but there's still a lot to like.  The Taskbar lost some functionality, but nothing I personally care about.

 

Ars Technica has very in-depth review, if you're interested in all the details.

I installed it and it's working well. A few minor bugs, but nothing worse than I've seen with any other Windows release.

 

I do like the visual refresh for Settings and other things. I'm glad things are finally moving well beyond the Win8 Metro design style, which was just about the worse I've ever seen.

So, a couple of months ago I checked if my computer was compatible to upgrade to 11, and it told me I was.  Today, I get a message to say that it is not:

I have run the health check and it says this is not good:   Processor: AMD A6-7310 APU with AMD Radeon R4 Graphics

 

I'm about ready to get an Apple 😠 🤬 👿

@Pixey  I would download and run 'PC Health Check' to get the details.  I just checked your processor; it is supported from this chart found here.

 

Maybe it's the TPM 2.0?  You may have it, but it needs to be enabled.

I did run it and that's what it told me.  I've been Googling and I think it's an Error by Microsoft.  I will wait and see, but this is not very encouraging.

The correct list is here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-amd-processors

 

The AMD A6-7310 is too old for Windows 11.  Even first-gen Ryzen processors are too old.

 

 

If you're feeling adventurous, Microsoft has provided a way to bypass these hardware checks, and install Windows 11 anyways.

To be fair, in defense of these, I can see that they might be viable for handheld Windows PC, and I do liked using it in touchscreen-supported laptop (even though it's not too essential there as handheld pcs).

 

As for Windows 11 itself, well my CPU isn't supported.

 

This is about it:

Hi. Got this prompt this evening checking for updates, Is it worth upgrading now, or best to defer for now please?  

 

I've been having mostly good luck with Win11 but it hasn't been perfect. I'd say wait for now.

@AndrewDavid put the link in his first post, on how to find out:

 

https://pureinfotech.com/determine-pc-trusted-platform-module-tpm-windows-10/

 

My computer is only 4 years old - a Dell - and is NOT compatible.  I don't need to go and buy a new one, as Windows 10 will still get updates.
