Error installing Windows 11 virtually

In the last week I have gotten this twice, ” This PC Cant run windows 11 ” ” This PC doesn’t meet the minimum system requirements to install this version of Windows. For more information, visit

Both times it has been related to virtual machines. The first time was when I tried to install a Windows 11 VM locally with VirtualBox, and the second time was when I tried to set up a Windows 11 machine on a NUC with ESXi.

Well the solution is pretty simple, just follow these steps 🙂 Enjoy your virtual Windows 11 machine.

  1. Start installation and continue until error. Then press back.
  2. Press Shift+F10 to open the Command Prompt.
  3. Type regedit and press the Enter button.
  4. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup.
  5. Right-click on Setup > New > Key.
  6. Name it as LabConfig.
  7. Right-click on LabConfig > New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  8. Name it as BypassTPMCheck.
  9. Double-click on it to set the Value data as 1.
  10. Create another DWORD value named BypassSecureBootCheck.
  11. Set the Value data as 1.
  12. Click the OK button.
  13. Exit Command Prompt and try again 🙂
