Microsoft has released Windows 11 for unsupported computers

This week, Windows Insider members have been able to install the 22H2 build of Windows 11, which will be available in just a few months (around October). For some reason, the same build was sent to computers running Windows 10 with an offer to update.

Owners of computers that are not officially compatible with this operating system have been informed about the possibility of installing Windows 11 22H2 (for example, because they have older Intel or AMD processors installed. Microsoft does not allow you to install test builds on such computers.) (And Windows 11 22H2 has been given the status of a ready-to-release RTM assembly).
Microsoft says it was a bug and now experts are investigating why it happened. He also advised those who have downloaded and installed Windows 11 in this way to roll back to Windows 10. It is unlikely that anyone who has installed this update will decide to take such action, as they may no longer have the opportunity to update. .

Officially, Windows 11 can only be installed on computers that are not older than the processor Intel Coffee Lake (eighth generation) or AMD Zen 2. However, using bootable media, this OS can also be officially installed on incompatible machines, but in this case Microsoft does not guarantee and warns of potential problems until the equipment fails.
