If you have a supported Windows 11 compatible device, but you see the error “This computer does not currently meet all the system requirements of Windows 11” on the Windows Update page, don’t be surprised, because you are not alone. For Windows Insider members, Microsoft has been testing a new feature that will directly tell you the compatibility status of Windows 11 in Windows Update.
The new information in Windows Update will tell you the status of “This computer cannot run Windows 11” or “This computer can run Windows 11” there.
This information is a convenient and more direct alternative to PC health check applications and other third-party tools. However, some bugs also appeared in this process. The problem that currently plagues Windows Update on Windows 10 is the ability to accurately report Windows 11 compatibility status.
As you can see from the screenshot below, when users with compatible devices check for updates, Windows 10 incorrectly reports the error message “This computer does not currently meet all the system requirements of Windows 11. Learn more and see if you can Things to do in the PC health check application”. According to some reports we have seen, this error appears on PCs that are eligible for Windows 11 upgrades, and it does not seem to be widespread. Some users have reported this issue in Microsoft’s Feedback Center.
The health check application shows that the computer can run Windows 11. But Windows Update still says “this computer does not currently meet all the system requirements of Windows 11.” Restarting and checking for updates did not help. In this way, the error report prevents the upgrade of Windows 11 on supported hardware, but users can still choose to download and install the new operating system through the installation assistant or the Windows 11 ISO.
Fortunately, for those affected by this issue, Microsoft has confirmed that this is a known issue, and the company is actively investigating the matter and is studying a fix. Hope that Microsoft can solve the server-side problem of Windows Update, which caused the wrong Windows 11 error.
“We are aware of this problem and we are currently working to fix it,” Microsoft’s support staff told us. It is worth noting that the incorrect compatibility status is not only reported through Windows Update, but also on Microsoft’s specification page. Microsoft recommends that users submit reports in the Feedback Center to help the company determine the root cause.
In addition to the new processor and TPM 2.0 requirements, users also need Windows 10 version 2004 or higher to see notifications. In addition, it must install the September cumulative update. If the latest version of Windows 10 is not available, Windows 11 notifications will not be displayed on Windows Update.
