Being worked on. Main issue is being able to change the icon colors using a function. I suck at GDI+

Uuuh, now icons are shown better by reverting colors ... but text is almost unreadable in dark mode. 👁️‍🗨️ 😜

 

Maybe you have to set the icons to "static" like the [OK] icons or the red text ... & revert back to previous color in dark mode.

Bonjour pour l'instant tu et comme beaucoup de personnes dans le mode dont moi, ça ne marche pas encore car nous ne savons pas si le Ryzen 5 2400G au même titre que mon I7 7700 et encore d'autre CPU sera compatible ou pas il faut patienté malheureusement 

Voila bonne journée

Zen 2 AMD processors and up. Yours is Zen 1. Zen 2 is the AMD 3000 series processors.

GPT detection has been significantly improved and should be less vague

 

Currently dev build only but new releases happen about every 24 hours

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?)

Use mbr2gpt on CMD (sounds fake, but its actually built in)

Yes, I did it that way.

The only thing you'll have to do is creating a bootable EFI partition with the correct GUID (and maybe a recovery partition).

(And convert 'advanced partitions' to primary.) So you don't loose any data of your mbr-system doing it that way.

Use one that isn't _x86 if possible (if you're on a 32-bit system you can't install Win11 anyway). AVs get contacted every release but it can take a while for it to be excluded... if they even exclude it or reply at all

Any way to change it back to English? Also, may I propose some changes to the Norwegian translation?

When I updated to Windows 11 insider preview, in Settings> Update & Security> Windows Insider Program, it said my Ryzen 5 1600AF PC was compatible with Windows 11 and would continue getting Windows 11 builds. The Microsoft PC Health Check app says my PC is compatible. I guess the whynotwin11 app is just going through the supported CPUs only. This also means that there are other CPUs not listed that are compatible with Windows 11 ex. Ryzen 3 1200AF

I'm not sure of a way to check AF vs non-AF using WIndows calls but I'll look into getting this fixed.

What do you mean by "Windows Calls"? CPU-Z lists my 1600 as a Pinnacle Ridge 12nm CPU. Could be a way to differentiate all AF vs non-AF CPUs since all AF chips are 12nm. I also think it's safe to assume that all 12nm Pinnacle Ridge CPUs are compatible with Windows 11 right?

@rcmaehl

Ryzen 3 1200 (YD1200BBAEBOX) is 14nm Summit Ridge (stepping ZP-B1) ... and ...

Ryzen 3 1200 AF (YD1200BBAFBOX) is 12nm Pinnacle Ridge (stepping PiR-B2).

 

Maybe you could program to check for the cpu stepping.

Hello @rcmaehl!

 

Nice to see a new version. Here' my feedback:

1. In dark mode icons on left side and icons (?) on right side are not visible enough.

2. "Secure boot" is not activated (aktiviert) atm, but it's supported (unterstützt) by the UEFI. In version 2.3.0.5 that was fine.

3. "GPT detected" (GPT erkannt) is not centered in height in that field.

 

Thanx ... and have a good time!

UEFI is enabled in BIOS, I'm using an RTX 2070 so do have DX12 and secure boot is enabled. I'm so confused, can anyone help? GPT I know I need to fix.

Looks like you're using a version that isn't mine and is outdated. Please try the official version: https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/

As long as you're not in GPT it doesn't matter that you've enabled UEFI in BIOS, the BIOS will fall back to Legacy.
