Check If your PC is Eligible for Free Upgrade to Windows 11

Microsoft announced the roll-out of Windows 11 later this year and also announced that some of the current Windows 10 PC's are eligible for a free upgrade. Microsoft plans to support the existing Windows 10 until October 14, 2025.

Following are the minimum system configurations required for Windows 11 free upgradation.

  • At least 4 GB RAM
  • 64 GB or greater system storage
  • 64-Bit Processor having minimum speed 1 Ghz with 2 Cores
  • The system should be capable of Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and secure boot
  • Graphics card having DirectX 12 compatible graphics / WDDM 2.x
  • Display should be greater than 9 inches with HD Resolution
  • The system should support Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0
  • Active Internet connection with Microsoft Account

You can use the Microsoft PC Health Check app to determine if your PC is eligible to upgrade to Windows 11.

Once you download the app, run it on your current PC, it will check the configuration and give the result whether your current PC is eligible to upgrade or not as shown in the following screenshot.

After running the health checker, it shows the preceding message that my PC does not support Windows 11 Free upgrade since my current system does not support the secure boot.

The most of the existing Windows 10 PC's lack the secure boot and UEFI feature support which result in them not being eligible for the free upgrade.


I hope this quick post helps you to check whether or not your current PC supports Windows 11 free upgrade. If you like this type of post, then share with your friends and don't forget to follow me on social media and YouTube Channel.
