Ventoy Windows 11

It’s a well-known fact that, although many are in love with the idea of a new operating system, Windows 11 caused both frustration and confusion among users.

Mainly because, even though it’s free, the system requirements it comes with prevent a lot of people from being able to install it on their current setups.

Unsurprisingly, many have already expressed their anger online, explaining their devices are perfectly capable of running Windows 11, and yet, the company isn’t offering the free upgrade because it thinks their hardware is not eligible.

You can bypass system requirements with Ventoy

Just as expected, it was only a matter of time until someone came up with a way to install Windows 11 even on unsupported computers.

Ventoy is an application that allows you to install the latest OS while also bypassing the verification for system requirements, which means you can install the operating system no matter if your device is eligible or not.

Some more good news is that the software is also already available for download, and it can be used to create bootable USB media from a variety of image formats, including ISO, WIM, IMG, and VHD.

What sets Ventoy apart from most solutions, including Rufus and Universal MediaCreationTool, is that it places image files directly on the USB media, without extraction, and that multiple image files may be added to boot different systems.

Remember that Microsoft’s PC Health Check app is still the first option to find out if a system is compatible with Windows 11.

You won’t be able to install the OS if you don’t get the thumbs up, but there are options to install Windows 11 without TPM 2.0 and other requirements.

So if you really want the latest operating system on your machine, the first thing you need to do is download the latest version of Ventoy from the project’s GitHub website.

It is available for Windows and Linux, with the Windows version supplied as a zip file, which you need to extract after the download.
