Upgrading to Windows 11 can be done in various ways[1], the biggest hurdle may be the hardware requirements for running Windows 11. To upgrade to Windws 11 without supported hardware, we can set registry key to force the update:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


After downloading Windows 11 we should verify the checksum:

$ Get-FileHash .\Win11_English_x64v1.iso
Algorithm       Hash
---------       ----
SHA256          4BC6C7E7C61AF4B5D1B086C5D279947357CFF45C2F82021BB58628C2503EB64E

$ Select-String -Pattern "4BC6C7E7C61AF4B5D1B086C5D279947357CFF45C2F82021BB58628C2503EB64E" .\Win11_English_x64v1.iso.sha256
Win11_English_x64v1.iso.sha256:1:English 64-bit 4BC6C7E7C61AF4B5D1B086C5D279947357CFF45C2F82021BB58628C2503EB64E

If the checksum is correct, the installation process can be started.
