  1. And you are writing from experience? bookie32
  2. I can understand why no one has replied to this thread... Why on earth would you want to use IE....it is dated and was never much good.......?! Edge isn't much better.... bookie32
  3. Wow GD 2W10 Nice info! Going to leave it on a test machine for the time being and see what happens with a major update.... Thanks for all your time and effort.... bookie32
  4. Yes....but it is annoying all the same We will wait and see what happens....lol Just thinking out loud...it would be a good idea to build a lite version of this to get rid of all the apps and crap one doesn't want and then you don't have to risk breaking anything with download scripts.... bookie32
  5. Update! I have followed the instructions here and have installed this on a test computer with no problems.......just as a test My question is....What happens when a newer version comes along? Most of us create images of our computer's with all programs etc.... Do I need to do a fresh install every time they roll out a new version? bookie32
  6. It as bad enough when they released Windows 8 and then 10 but 11 takes the cake....even worse crap than 10... Even if you guys can fix it....not sure I will be wasting any energy on that any time soon.... bookie32
  7. There goes the environment.....I have been building computer's for years and never have I had a computer that has failed...yes sometimes a psu will fail because of a poor electric central....but those computers just keep going and going... I have upgraded many of them with SSD's for system drives and moved the user to a larger drive.....but I always point out the SSD's I use usually have a five year warranty and that if they are going to buy a new computer save the drives from the old one... I try my best to persuade customers to replace a drive instead of buying a new computer....OK....that being said MANY of my customers NOT ALL will not pay for a reinstallation on a new drive if a drive fails or even clone to a newer drive....they have the same answer all of them "can put that money on a new computer instead" I always work even harder on such customers to make them think of te environment - BUT at the end of the day it is up to them.... Now there is another side to this and that is if a computer is already 6 to 7 years old I do point out that...Yes, a new SSD will make things better but it will not change the fact that Microsoft will not support Windows 11 on their hardware and that Windows 10 has end of life 2025... Some customers will still upgrade to a new SSD but many want help with buying a new computer... WE HAVE TO THINK OF THE ENVIRONMENT! IT IS THE ONLY ONE WE HAVE! End of Rant.... bookie32
  8. You are absolutely right....I really am just waiting to see what the criteria for Windows 12 will be....Microsoft has probably deals with Intel and Amd that none of us are aware of....and of course they want you to buy their newest products....what they did with Windows 7 was just the tip of the so called iceberg....(my opinion). One of the main reasons I love Linux...have it on so many computers and it works really well.... bookie32
  9. I am not sure I understand....this is a thread about installing Windows 11 on unsupported hardware.....so what part of "Microsoft don't want us to use older computers....so why waste the energy?" don't you understand? You have a use Windows 7 and there will come a time when you can't use that because of the restrictions for newer processors. All unsupported hardware is in Microsoft's view old hardware...I have built several games computers on hardware that cost them a small fortune but because of not meeting the requirements for Windows 11 they either have to do what others are doing here or buy new hardware.... We will never be able to trust Microsoft?!! I get asked to build expensive computers and they don't just cut it after just over three years.... Because the world is in crisis and things are just going to keep getting more expensive....we try to make our computers last as long as possible.....not easy when Microsoft lies and lies over and over again.... Sorry if I was unclear...has been known...lol bookie32
  10. Another thing I noticed...end of life Windows 11 next year? It has been out five minutes and now end of life?!! I think it should be end of life for Microsoft and be done with it... What crap will they demand to install Windows 12? bookie32
  11. I agree but we will never tame Microsoft....they are a bunch of twats that will always go their own way despite user input....
  12. I have to ask....Is there really any point to this? Microsoft don't want us to use older computers....so why waste the energy? bookie32
  13. Why can't Microsoft for once respect people's choice regarding upgrading to this ****...even if I turn off the function for now...Microsoft install 11 anyway.....?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So sick of this company and not respecting the user's choices.... bookie32
