Users are installing Windows 11 on Raspberry Pi #RaspberryPi #Windows11 (Updated)

In the last day, the interwebs are filling up with reports and videos of users installing Windows 11 preview builds on various non-PC hardware. This is a bit ironic in that the hardware requirements for PCs are quite high – a very modern processor with a trusted platform module (TPM).

Since Microsoft has released an official ARM64 build of Windows 11, it’s not too surprising to see it get ported to the Raspberry Pi 4 or the old Microsoft Lumia 950 XL phone. It’s cool to see users jumping through the hoops to actually make it work.

The non-detailed instructions for doing this are (untested):

How to install Windows 11 to Raspberry Pi 4: do everything the way you would if you were setting up Windows 10 on ARM, but use the Windows 11 ARM64 image instead.

Update: Tom’s Hardware now had a tutorial on the details on How to Install Windows 11 on a Raspberry Pi 4

Update 2: Tom’s Hardware has a new tutorial on How To Overclock Your Windows 11-Powered Raspberry Pi 4

See the following sites documenting this is possible. Additional detailed tutorials on the internet are anticipated shortly and it’ll be interesting to see what Microsoft does.
