Enjoy Windows 11 23H2 update on your PC even if its configuration is not officially supported by Microsoft.
A few days ago, Microsoft officially deployed Windows 11 update 23H2 to all eligible PCs. On all machines with a hardware configuration meeting the specifications imposed by Microsoft, the update is automatically offered. To obtain it, simply go to the Settings of the operating system, then go to Windows Update to check the availability of the update, download it, and apply it.
For users who may have tweaked the Windows 11 installation to work on their PC with an unsupported configuration, that’s a different story. Microsoft automatically detects ineligible machines, and obviously does not offer the update via Windows Update. And even by manually downloading the Windows 11 23H2 ISO, installing the update is impossible. The program’s installation wizard automatically analyzes the hardware configuration to verify the eligibility of the PC.
However, installing the 23H2 update on an officially non-compatible PC is easily circumvented. To do this, you will only need the Windows 11 23H2 disk image in ISO format, a USB key, and Rufus. Here are the steps to follow.
1. Download Windows 11 23H2 disk image
Open your favorite browser, and go to the Windows 11 23H2 ISO disk image download page. Under the title Download Windows 11 Disk Image (ISO)click on the drop-down menu Download selectionand choose Windows 11 (multi-edition ISO). Then click on the button Download.
