I upgraded my PC to run Windows 11 a few months ago. Everything is working perfectly, and now want to do a clean install from scratch.

But everytime I try to run the installation, it tells me that my "PC doesn't meet the minimum requirements", which is crazy. I'm running a RYzen 5 3600 CPU on an ASUS ROG Strix B450-F board.

Any ideas on how to get around this?

Thanks

Hello!

There are a few BIOS settings that must be changed in order to install Windows 11.

First, you must disable CSM.
Secondly, you must enable Secure Boot.
Thirdly, you must enable fTPM.

(I’m on an Intel platform, so I don’t know the exact terms or parameters used by AMD).

Here’s a YouTube tutorial video that might help you:
