Microsoft on its support page informed that the issue was detected on February 23 and was resolved on the same day. It also stated that “Some hardware ineligible Windows 10 and Windows 11, version 21H2 devices were offered an inaccurate upgrade to Windows 11.

Microsoft has been really strict on its stand on the system requirements needed for the installation of the Windows 11 latest updates. Therefore even after getting this update users were not able to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 11. Affected platforms that Microsoft has mentioned include Windows 10 (version 22H2), Windows 11 (version 21H2), Windows 10 (version 21H2), and Windows 10 (version 20H2).

A similar incident took place in June last year when many users got their ineligible PCs upgraded to Windows 11. Microsoft minimum requirements include a Processor which is 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with 2 or more cores, RAM of 4 GB, Storage of more than 64 GB, and the most controversial Intel 8th Gen Coffee Lake or Zen 2 CPUs.
