As with most of the new OS releases on macOS, Windows or Linux, my best practice is to test them first in a virtual environment, usually using VirtualBox. The reason you might stumble upon this post is because of an error you’ll definitely face a few steps in the Windows 11 installation. The error says:
This computer does not meet the minimum system requirements to install this version of Windows.
The solution though, is pretty much straightforward if you follow the steps below.

Step 1. Once you get the error, press
F10 to open the command prompt.
Step 2. Type
regedit to open the Registry Editor.
Step 3. Navigate to the following path:
Step 4. Right click on
LabConfig as name.
Step 5. Right-click
DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Step 6. Create 4 DWORD values depending on the initial VirtualBox config:
Step 7. Double-click each key, set their value to
1 and click
Step 8. Exit the Registry Editor and the Command Prompt. Run the installation from the start again meaning without doing any reboots, and there you go.
I’ll be doing a full Windows 11 installation on VirtualBox tutorial so keep around until next time.
