    That's the way I was thinking of going if I go down the Win11 road, just to ensure I keep my local account.

    I selected to upgrade (keep my files and settings) so I assumed it would keep my local account if it successfully installed (which it didn't !!)

    No because the WS for Android is still resource heavy and sucks.

    Even with my newer system, tpm and secure boot enabled in bios. tpm.msc says it's enabled and systeminfo says secure boot is enabled, W11 is saying my build isn't compatible lol...

    It did not work for me. I came in this morning to an "Upgrade failed" message.

    Too bad :mad:, for now the only working tool was already mentioned by @roger_m is the script made by AveYo:
    https://github.com/AveYo/MediaCreationTool.bat/blob/main/MCT/no_11_setup_checks_on_dynamic_update.cmd
    How-to (name of the script has changed recently) by Tom's Hardware:

    It is. From the log it appears to have crashed at some point.

    I decided to run this a second time and it actually did work. Not sure why. I did move the files to the public user profile instead of my own. Related? I have no idea.

    If Windows 11 is stable, congratulations! You should have no problem getting updates.

    I'm hoping so. With a SSD upgrade it would still be a usable machine.

    You have 10 days to roll back upon installing Windows 11. After that, you can revert only with a clean install.

    Or as long as you like with a backup of your system prior to installing or upgrading.:D

    I wouldn't play with anything without a backup. I do an incremental every day. I have the 30 most recent Windows 10 backups and so far one from every day of the Windows 11 experience. Not to mention data loss from ransomware, other types of malware, or hardware failure. When customers call and say "My laptop died, can you get our data back?" we ask, "Do you have a backup?" When "no" is their answer, it is ours too.

    As a stable release, Windows 11 is suitable for my long term browsers. The fewer updates I have to endure, the more uptime I can have on my PC.

    Darn it! Staying up FAR too late I've become bored too. First attempt at Win 11 on a machine that all bar the CPU, meets Windows 11 specs.
