Windows 11 Readiness Check (WhyNotWin11)

rcmaehl
 Share

Hi all,

 

I've created a quick program to detect why Windows 11 may being saying that your computer is not ready. You can find the details here: https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/ and the dowload here: https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/releases/latest

 

Edit: I've released version 1.1, which gives more detailed returns on what passed and what failed.
 

Edit 2: I've released version 2.0, which should check all requirements except CPU Model #s (which is a soft check anyway)

On one machine I have true/UEFI/GPT but the MS tool still says no good. 

So either there's something else or MS's tool is kinda broken in the first place 🙂

Yes, I literally made it today, so is not yet commonly downloaded.

The virus total results are here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/19de2f043200dfdc0d77d15e9747ad5664a25d0d273a35630083062538f08f55/detection

The source code is here: https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/blob/main/WhyNotWin11.au3

And the instructions to compile it yourself if you don't trust the .exe are here: https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11#how-to-build-from-source-code

why tho? what does this mean?

Means you don't have a TPM, your system doesn't support UEFI, and your disk isn't GPT compatible.

 

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really. 

I'm not a professional, just an enthusiast. I don't know everything.

Thank you, I appreciate this tool! I've used it on two machines and the results correspond to what I believe the machines have/support.

 

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really.

You don't have a TPM installed (or, if installed, enabled)
Your computer is still using legacy boot instead of UEFI

And your PC is still on the old MBR partitioning method

 

All of these make your PC incompatible.

The actual source code for Microsoft's checker is heavily obfuscated. It wouldn't surprise me if there's other, undocumented, checks. If I figure those out, I'll add them

Means your don't have a TPM, or if you do have one, it's not enabled on your motherboard setup.

It's likely in CPU configuration as fTPM or something similar. Various motherboards have it listed as different settings so I unfortunately can't give much advise for that.

Yeah, defender won't greenlight it automatically until next time definitions get updated. Also, I think I broke BOOT success text, gonna fix that really quick.

Is it even possible to convert from MBR to GPT without losing everything?

(I think no, so that rules out upgrading Windows gg no re?)

It's possible. Chcekc the guide here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000024558/memory-and-storage/intel-optane-memory.html

For whoever the "PC Health Check" tool is saying their PC isn't compatible but you do have the three biggest factors figured out and working (Secure Boot TPM >= 1.2 / DX12 GPU w/ WDDM 2.x), it most likely has to do with the official supported processor list. You can find this list and validate your hardware against it, here: AMD, Intel and Qualcomm.

 

We don't know how much of this lock is artificial (since the leaked build runs inside a VM just fine), one thing to look forward to is that they list CPU generation as a Soft Floor, so it will probably be changed.

I have two pc's that are older, one is a Ivybridge 3300, not sure on the motherboard, but could be UEFI, the issue I am worried about is a socket 775 Intel Core 2 Duo, is their any point getting it 4GB of ram with the UEFI/TPM limit for WIn11?

PC - NZXT H510 Elite, Ryzen 5600, 16GB DDR3200 2x8GB, EVGA 3070 FTW3 Ultra, Asus VG278HQ 165hz,

 

Mac - 1.4ghz i5, 4GB DDR3 1600mhz, Intel HD 5000.  x2

 

Endlessly wishing for a BBQ in space.

We don't know how much of this lock is artificial (since the leaked build runs inside a VM just fine), officially it might require a bypass but I'm afraid there's a high likelihood of breaking automatic Windows Updates if such a bypass is done, anyways, we'll have to wait and see this story develop further.

I'll try to get this added as well as well as other checks. Likely for release 2.0

This is fixed in 1.1.2 and will have some improvements in 1.2 or later for alternative detections

Getting this error now, and afterwards an empty window with an OK button with the title "Out". Not entirely sure why.
