    Interesting, why a reseat? Couldn’t you just wipe the keys, disable Secure Boot and the TPM module?

    Also what games were having trouble, I was thinking about upgrading to W11 but I think I’ll wait until it’s official release now.

    All these threads and posts with non-conformist Windows 11 views, imagine a pro-Windows 11 world .......

    Content will be removed and users accounts banned for any post containing the following:
    • 1. Sensational or Alarmist Windows 11 Content: Content that suggests that Windows 11 is bloated, just an update to Windows 10, unsafe, or irrelevant, in exaggerated, conspiratorial, or sensational terms. This includes content that makes generalizations about Windows 11 harms or utility in hyperbolic terms or without providing context, or which connects Windows 11 to a conspiratorial narrative about a purposely hidden widespread harm, secret, or truth.
      • Ex: “Windows 11 will spy on you more than any previous Windows — the sheep of the world need to wake up.”
      • Ex: “Just wait until you see the real effects of this Windows 11 TPM requirement”
    • 2. Criticizing the Choice to use Windows 11: Content that disparages others on the basis of their choice to use Windows 11, or on their choice to recommend Windows 11 to others, including blaming people for misfortune after installing Windows 11.
      • Ex: “Well, what did you expect when you installed Windows 11.”
      • Ex: “Only someone clinically insane would install Windows 11 and believe it gave them more privacy and protected their freedoms”
    • 3. Promoting Windows 11 Refusals and Alternatives: Content that implicitly discourages Windows 11 installation by advocating for alternatives or celebrating those who refuse to move to Windows 11. This includes promoting alternative operating systems and encouraging refusal of Windows 11 without citing the Microsoft Windows 11 download and/or upgrade link and Microsoft marketing material.
      • Ex: “Sarah, please whatever you do, don’t upgrade to Windows 11”
      • Ex: “What’s the point of installing Windows 11 when there are such great Linux builds around?”
    • 4.Shocking Stories: Content that shares potentially or actually true events or facts that raise safety concerns, indicated by sharing personal anecdotes or news events of severe adverse events, either in hyperbolic terms or without context.
      • Ex: “My friend got Windows 11 and now has regular BSOD's, be warned!”
      • Ex: “Uncovered: See the 632 reports made of people who lost data when installing Windows 11”
    Thank God we don't live in a world anything like that.

    I can't install it even if I wanted to. Becasue you need to have TPM... and to have TPM you can't use Legacy Boot mode... and I can't do UEFI secure boot on my PC (X570, Ryzen 5950).... when I enable it, all my device drivers are broken/disabled (because no signed secure drivers I presume) - so no mouse or keyboard working when I get to the Windows login page... so I can't do anything at all. And I have NO idea how to fix or get past this problem, and I have plenty of experience building PCs.

    Check to see if you have "Legacy USB Support" turned off. If it is disabled then re-enable it. Should solve the issue.

    I think that based on the well known "skip the next windows version" tradition I will wait...

    Win95 - good
    Win98 - skip
    Win98Se - good
    WinMe - skip
    WinXP - good
    Win Vista - skip
    Windows 7 - good
    Windows 8 - skip
    Windows 10 - good
    Windows 11 - skip
    Windows ??? - good

    Unless Win11 breaks my gaming experience, I'd most likely keep it. My other two older rigs don't meet with the requirements for Win11, so I'd be doing almost everything else on them instead.

    Why is that meme still a thing? There's about 9069 versions of Windows missing in that list. It was never a good-bad cadence.

    And something people seem to never remember is that Vista and 7 were extremely similar, and outside of a shaky launch due to driver incompatibility (particularly sound due to MS removing the sound HAL that was always used during that era), and idiots thinking a moldy potato in pot of expired gravy is good enough to run a new OS, it was fine.

    windows 2000 was business oriented - part of the windows NT family, MS unified business and consumer with Windows XP - I was talking about consumer products.

    So, they ask at least 64GB for an installation that takes less than 15GB for the Pro version (home takes less, paging and hibernation file not included since are related to system memory) but you have only 10 days to assure the upgrade didn't frack anything and it is working like a charm. Completely insane.

    This isn't new to 11, the later versions of 10 have a minimum of about this as well for the Windows.Old directory on non compactos installs.

    I know.. but why only 10 days to decide for a major upgrade like this? there is no-sense. Years ago was like 1 month. plus they can still lunch compact on old directory in background.

    No, they are all the newer GPT type...

    I would have to check again... but as far as I remember I did turn on such an obvious option if it was there. Must be something else it doesn't like in ASUS BIOS.
