As we wrote yesterday Gustave Monce able to Windows 11 on the Lumia 950 XL smartphone, someone else on the Raspberry Pi 4. The latter is the case of Mario Balanica, who on GitHub proposes the initiative capable of bringing the new Microsoft operating system to the famous card.
Install Windows 11 on a Raspberry Pi 4
An ARM version was used on the platform, complete with the desktop experience and emulation. The instructions to install it are the same as already described on the pages of the official site of the project for Windows 10, with the difference that in this case, it is necessary to use the build 22000.51 (the Insider Preview ) of Windows 11 released in recent days by the Redmond group. ARM64 image can be downloaded from UUP Dump. Those who have had the opportunity to test it reports lower performance than devices with Snapdragon processors, but satisfactory. A version with at least 4 GB of RAM required.
According to some clues that emerged following the presentation, the launch of Windows 11 is expected by the end of the year, on 20 October. Already confirmed instead that the rollout of the update for PCs currently using W10 will be managed by Microsoft between the end of 2021 and mid-2022, provided that they meet a series of hardware requirements.
It is possible to perform a compatibility test by relying on the WhyNotWin11 utility, which provides a precise and detailed explanation of what could hinder the upgrade.
