Trying hard to bypass Windows 11 requirements on your unsupported PC? Fortunately, you are landed on the right page! After publishing a working method to install Windows 11 on unsupported hardware, today we present yet another method to bypass Windows 11 hardware requirements using Rufus. Rufus brilliantly takes the hard work out of the equation!
Rufus is a renowned tool for creating bootable media to install operating systems on computers. It’s an incredibly lightweight tool that supports a variety of operating systems and the latest version 3.16.183 (beta) takes it to the next level. It now comes with an ‘Extended installation’ mode which allows us to tweak the Windows 11 installation at the ISO burning stage for bypassing the system requirements. To be specific, it helps to bypass TPM 2.0, Secure Boot, and minimum RAM requirements.
How to Bypass Windows 11 Requirements
To bypass Windows 11 system requirements, use these steps:
- Download Windows 11 ISO image.
- Download the latest beta version of Rufus.
- Launch the tool, select Device, and choose the ISO file.
- Under the Image option, select “Extended Windows 11 Installation”.
- Click ‘START’.
Now, let’s delve into the process in detail.
First off, download the latest Windows 11 ISO file. Refer to our guide to know about the downloading procedure.
Then, go to this link and download the latest beta release of Rufus.
Once both files are downloaded, plug your USB into your computer and make sure it’s detected. Note that your USB drive will be formatted before beginning the media creation process. So take a backup if there are any files on the drive before proceeding.
Launch the Rufus tool and check whether your USB drive is automatically selected. If you have multiple external drives connected, choose the right one for creating the bootable media.
In the Rufus window, choose the downloaded Windows ISO file in the SELECT box next to the Boot selection drop-down list.
Once the file is fed into the tool, here comes the important part. Under the Image option section, select the option that says “Extended Windows 11 Installation (no TPM/no Secure Boot/8GB- RAM)“.
Now, according to your target computer configuration, choose the right options for both the Partition scheme and Target system.
You can give a volume label under the Format Options section and choose your file system as well. In case you don’t know what these are meant for, just leave those options and proceed with the default values.
After that, click on the START button at the bottom to begin the creation of a Windows 11 bootable media that can bypass the annoying system requirements.
There you go! After completing the media creation, you will get a bootable media of the Windows 11 operating system which can be used to install the OS on an unsupported PC.

Now you have yet another workaround to bypass TPM and Secure Boot requirements. So, there is no need for concern about the specifications of the system on which you are going to install the brand new Windows 11. Nice one Rufus, you’ve nailed it!
