    For owners running Windows 11 on their X99 PCs.

    Windows 11 Security Book ( 1st Oct 2021 )

    https://query.prod.cms.rt.microsoft..../binary/RWMyFE

    The section on hardware security is very interesting. After reading it, I'm not sure why Microsoft has made Windows 11 so easy to install on old hardware. It is absolutely a retrograde move in relation to the objective Microsoft was trying to achieve with Windows 11.

    Those of us with Haswell-E CPUs should keep in mind that on the matter of Virtualisation-Based Security the Haswell implementation blows. Microsoft should not add Haswell to the Windows 11 compatible CPU list. A spineless Microsoft probably would.

    Update:
    Fixed link. Thanks, BigJohnny.

    Ive been working with the dev channel and keeping tabs on development. Im fairly certain all the reg hacks to get it to run on old gear have been disabled.

    It might be one of those new Windows 11 Security features. Just remove the http:// from the front of link.

    Hopefully there will be third party security solutions so we don't have to use what comes with WIn 11, similar to what we have in Windows 10.

    Hi,
    Hate to wake you up about this feature but it's on win-10 as well so should x99 be banned from win-10 too lol

    This feature is really for people that use virtual machines so exploits don't leak into the host os but fact is this protection is off regardless of 10 or 11

    Real problem is too many people rely on windows/ microsoft defender and shouldn't or ms lab tests.

    On the matter virtual machines, VBS is used to isolate the hypervisor itself from the OS now that a compromised OS is automatically assumed. The security features on fully compatible PCs running Windows 11 go six layers deep and are designed around the premise that some part of the system has been compromised. Here's where Haswell comes in. VBS is now used to isolate areas of memory as a general function of PC security. Haswell has VBS but it hits performance pretty bad, and Microsoft is or *was* pushing for all the security with little or no performance degradation. For this reason Haswell will not and should not be on the Windows 11 CPU compatibility list. As far as I'm concerned, Windows 11 on my PC is no less secure than Windows 10 so I might as well be running it until the next upgrade or until MS gets in the way.

    Glad I do not rely on Defender (and never will), but for people who are using the MS security solution should feel content.

    Hi,
    You do realize virtualization features/ hyper-v is disabled by default in bios on all asus boards there's a good reason for this default lol

    This is no big deal unless a user wants to use this security hole feature along with Remote access

    Yeah so focus on a threat that is only a threat "IF" someone is silly enough to use hyper-v-ware.

    Smart people would not.

    I just installed win-11 on my x99 5930k rig my goodness the sky is falling I swear

    Same for z490 and x299 rigs same setup No TPM/ No UEFI/ NO GPT/ No CPU support on at least 5930k x99 is a trifecta lol
