Last month, Microsoft officially launched a new generation of operating system “Windows 11″However, this time the hardware requirements are relatively high, including computers that need to support TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) and Secure Boot (Secure Boot), which was provided as early as half a year before the release.Computer health check toolLet users check whether they meet the upgrade requirements, and foreign netizens also develop WhyNotWin11 Can display more complete and detailed inspection item information. I have introduced before “Use Rufus to make Windows 11 installation pen drive without TPM and Secure Boot”You can choose an extended installation mode that bypasses installation restrictions.
This article will introduce the use of MediaCreationTool.bat Perform Windows 11 installation to bypass the computer specification detection, and you can use Windows 10 normally. Most computers should be able to upgrade stably.If you want to install the latest Windows 11 on an older computer or virtual machine, this small tool can solve the problem of failing to pass the installation test and upgrade Win 11 smoothly.
I also wrote another article before “Download any version of Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft or make a USB flash drive”Teaching can be used to create a Windows 10 installer flash drive. The feature is to allow users to select a specific version of Windows 10 to download and create through Microsoft’s official tools.
MediaCreationTool.bat is a universal MCT packaging batch file that supports all Windows 10/11 versions from 1507 to 21H2. It is also a Open source For the project, download and execute the batch file from GitHub and select the Windows installer to be created to automatically obtain the file from the official Microsoft website. The feature is that it can skip the condition check during the Windows 11 upgrade.
Open the GitHub page of MediaCreationTool.bat and click the green “Code“And select”Download ZIP“Pack the project-related files into ZIP format and download.
MediaCreationTool.bat The batch file can be used.
Then ask to choose the MCT version, including Windows 10/11 from 1507, 1511, 1607, 1703, 1709, 1803, 1809, 1903, 1909, 20H1, 20H2, 21H1, 21H2 and 11, if you want to install Windows 11 or make an installer Then choose the bottom “11」。
Select Windows 11 and several options will appear:
- Auto Upgrade: Upgrade directly, and will skip Windows 11 installation detection for installation.
- Make ISO：As an ISO image file, the installation detection will be skipped.
- Make USB: Make it as a USB installation flash drive, the installation detection will be skipped.
- MCT Defaults: Use the officially downloaded installation media to make ISO or USB, but there will be installation detection.
No matter which option you choose, the Windows 11 installer will start to download the installation file. It may take a while for the network to be fast enough. You can continue to use your computer while downloading.
After the installation is complete, Windows 11 media will be created, and features such as skip system detection will be added.
choose”Auto UpgradeThe option will automatically upgrade Windows 11 after the installation program is created. It will take a long time during installation and may restart several times. It is recommended to save the work at hand before the upgrade to avoid interruption by the upgrade program.
If you want to directly upgrade your existing operating system to Windows 11, you can choose to automatically upgrade Auto Upgrade, you do not need to perform other additional steps, after downloading the establishment media, the Windows 11 upgrade will be installed directly.
Through MediaCreationTool.bat, you can upgrade Windows 11 to computers that cannot pass the installation test items.
For example, I use a virtual machine to run Windows in Parallels Desktop for Mac. If I didn’t buy the Pro Edition or the commercial version, there would be no built-in “Virtual Platform Trusted Module“(Virtual Trusted Platform Module, vTPM), Windows 11 cannot be installed in a normal way, but the original virtual machine can be upgraded smoothly by using MediaCreationTool.bat to bypass the installation detection!
Three reasons to try:
- Use MediaCreationTool.bat to make installers for Windows 10/11 versions
- General MCT packaging batch file, open source code, users can download it for free from GitHub
- When installing or upgrading Windows 11, you can bypass the specification check, allowing old computers to be upgraded
