    Hi,

    It's running without issue and with a very mild x40 overclock. No TPM.

    I installed W11 on my X99 by preparing the nvme on a separate machine, you essentially expand the microsoft image onto the disk.

    Not exactly standard. No 3rd party tool or extra download. All done using powershell.

    Your 6850K will run it just fine.

    Do you have a guide for that? why not install with the no tpm no cpu flags? does it now show the watermark MS instated in the latest update for machines that do not support win11?

    thanks

    Changed my CPU to a Xeon E5-2697Av4 and fitted a Supermicro TPM-9665V-S (S type not C)

    I can now install Windows 11 without any fixes

    Interesting. Thanks for the tip. My TPM module is of course completely different as it's a Asus board (X99-A II) and so it is 14-1 LPC TPM 2.0 module. But that part is already installed and sorted out. It's only the CPU that's the issue. I have found your Xeon available (and compatible with my board), but it's about 400-450 USD. Currently I don't want to spend more money just to get Win11.

    Sure, i have some notes somewhere that I can share. I'm still learning myself. A friend of mine is the real expert. I find it truly mindblowing what you can do once you get your head around it.

    You're essentially using this command:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/pow...sserver2022-ps

    The "trick" is to find the right file to expand. You do this by kicking off a "Create Windows 11 Installation Media" from here:

    https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/windows11


    You open "products.xml" from the temp folder that the download is using.
    You read the XML to find the MS download location for the file that you need to expand.
    You expand the image
    You BCDEDIT the boot settings onto the drive (or your existing drive if you are dual booting)
    You boot, and windows 11 does the install process.


    You can use the same approach to install W11 into a VHD - and dual boot from that. I'm using this approach to test the insider builds and new drivers on my main X299 system.

    I take no credit for this, all learnt from someone else.

    This assumes you know what you're doing with DISKPART, BCDBOOT and dual booting your PC.

    Part 1: Media Creation tool

    Use the MS media creation tool to build a bootable USB.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...load/windows11

    While it is creating the USB, open a CMD prompt as Administrator
    Navigate to root of C
    DIR *.* /AH to look for hidden directories - this is where the MS tool is download stuff to in order to build the USB
    On my system it created a folder called "$Windows.~WS"
    CD $Windows.~WS\Sources
    In here you will find "Products.XML"
    Open this file in NOTEPAD
    Assuming you wish to install x64 W11 "Professional", look for this entry (or similar). Note the "FilePath" element is an URL to a MS download. This is the file you want.

    <File id="">
    <FileName>22000.318.211104-1236.co_release_svc_refresh_CLIENTCONSUMER_RET_x64 FRE_en-gb.esd</FileName>

    Part 2a: Prepare a VHD disk


    If you wish to dual boot your PC I recommend this approach. Create a VHD, a 60Gb one will do.


    Mount VHD, format as NTFS and assign it a drive letter of W


    OR


    Part 2b: Attach a new HardDisk to boot from


    This assumes you know what you are doing with DISKPART


    select disk 1
    clean
    convert gpt
    create partition efi size=100
    format quick fs=fat32 label="System"
    assign letter="S"
    create partition msr size=16
    create partition primary
    format quick fs=ntfs lab

    Part 3: Expand the widows image


    Using powershell:


    Use this command to list the contents of the package ...


    Get-WindowsImage -ImagePath "C:\W11.Install\<FilePath>"


    You need to know which INDEX to use


    Expand-WindowsImage -ImagePath "C:\W11.Install\<FilePath>" -Index 9 -ApplyPath "W:\"

    Part 4a: Dual booting (from the VHD)


    From a CMD prompt as Administrator, run the following.


    Bcdboot W:\Windows


    This will give you a bootloader screen with the VHD boot as default entry


    OR


    Part 4b: Single booting the new drive


    This is for when you have prepared the drive in PC #1 to put in PC #2


    Bcdboot W:\Windows /S S:\
