Even if your machine may be able to run it anyway, I think the installer won't install it if it fails the check.
Not necessarily so. A person I know loaded the leaked version of Win 11 on his 8 y/o laptop, an it's no high-end machine. Sure it has 4Gb of RAM, but it only has a 1.8 Mhz CPU. I think it's a bit of a lottery at the moment... there's some people with high-end machines that fail minimum requirements, yet there are others with older, lower-end machines that passed.
Thing is, between now and when Win 11 is released, MS may have to downgrade system requirements in order for it to be more widely installed on more PCs, given the millions who cannot afford an new machine to run it. I suppose we'll have to wait and see.
This is hilarious. My PC has a Ryzen 7 1700 8 (16) core processor @ 3.2 Ghz . A Radeon RX580 graphics card with 8 GB GDDR, and 32 GB of ram and can't run windows 11. Gimmie a effin break.
I too have a Ryzen 1700, 64gb of RAM and an older 7xxx series graphics care and it passed the prerequisites for Win 11, so I don't know why yours failed. However, I intend to run 11 on my Intel Core i7 10th gen with 128gb of Ram on an ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-F motherboard..... AND.... on my AMD Ryzen Threadripper X2900 with 8 sticks of 32gb RAM on a MSI SLI Plus motherboard.
I got a feeling those two ought to install and run Win 11 without issue. If they don't then eff Win 11
