Along with the official announcement of Windows 11 on June 24, Microsoft released the PC Health Check app to help Windows 10 users find whether their computer is eligible to receive the next major version of Windows. This tool checks for compatibility against the minimum hardware requirements.


Initially, the app was causing confusion by showing a generic message. Later, Microsoft released an update but that too was not up to the mark. Now, Microsoft has removed the PC Health Check tool until further notice.

The minimum system requirements to install or upgrade to Windows 11 is 1 GHz or a faster processor with 2 or more cores (8th Gen or above for Intel processors), minimum of 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB or larger storage device. Apart from these, it also requires you to have UEFI/Secure Boot enabled along with Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 1.2 or higher for security settings.


Based on the feedback so far, we acknowledge that it was not fully prepared to share the level of detail or accuracy you expected from us on why a Windows 10 PC doesn’t meet upgrade requirements. We are temporarily removing the app so that our teams can address the feedback, says Microsoft, We will get it back online in preparation for general availability this fall.


In case you aren't aware, Microsoft already released the first preview build of Windows 11 to the insiders in the Dev Channel. Even if your system is incompatible, you can still download the insiders' preview build of Windows 11 in your system to test and provide feedback to Microsoft.


It is not recommended to install this preview build in an incompatible system, as this may cause problems and require you to revert your system to Windows 10. Also, once the Windows 11 releases later this year, and if you are still running Windows 11 in an incompatible system, you will have to revert to Windows 10.
