Official Windows 11 Insider builds


Recommended Posts

Installed 25120 earlier today - like 25115, it runs on my G3258 just fine.  Only Windows Subsystem  for Android is missing.

I thought that was a store app? You might have to install it (I haven't checked) and it also might require prerequisites like virtualization.

Windows Store for Android has two prerequisites that i lack (both of which are known) more than two CPU core and a SSD).  Hence it being a quibble currently - I am prepping to do a birthday upgrade that will fix both - Core i5 and a 1 TB SSD.  The G3258 supports virtualization, so that is NOT it.

FOLLOWUP: Replaced 25120 with 25131 and installed the Subsystem for Android manually -  this week I will add the Play Store patch.

I am interested to know how well apps fare on your system. When I tried it (when it first became available for Insiders last year) in a 8GB RAM VM it crawled and was unusable.

 

I use Bluestacks in Windows 10 21H2 19044.1708 and I can run two instances of it fine on my i9-9990K 32GB (G.Skill Ripjaws 3200MHz) system, but even with this setup I can't run a VMware VM as well, I get an out of memory error, so I am looking at getting some more RAM and going to 64GB. I want to be able to run two VMs at the same time without issue too so I don;t have to shut one down to update another.

Windows 11 Insider build 29300 (current Dev  AMD64) is a fantastic starting Windows 10 or later point for any one wanting to kickstart Windows 11 testing.  The current DEV image is a triple track(Pro, Home, Enterprise) image, that can  be clean-installed or upgrade installed.

I am running the current Canary Home build - because it shipped in ISO form, I simply mounted and did a pour-over.  The Intel Command Center supports all processors with built-in GPUs down to Celeron Solo - including Pentium Solo and Dual/G.  It is now standard fare for all on-CPU graphics cores up to i5.

Erm, am i missing something here? Maybe a typo?? ;) 29300? Maybe you meant 25300? 

Made me read that a couple of times, as i am on 25357... :)

As far as Intel on-CPU drivers, support for older Pentium G CPUs - despite that being based on the i3 - is gone as of 23905 - is the same true in the case of the i3? (The Intel GPU driver was the 4400 Intel driver, and was used by Celeron -G, PenitiumG, Atom, and i3 due to the same graphics core.)

Hello,

Does not seem to be mentioned in the announcement/changelog at https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2023/07/12/announcing-windows-11-insider-preview-build-25905/.  Were these old CPUs (and their IGPs) officially supported at one point

The system requirements for Windows 11 at https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/whats-new/windows-11-requirements contain this, though:

  • Graphics card: Compatible with DirectX 12 or later, with a WDDM 2.0 driver.

I believe the Intel HD Graphics 4400 IGP is a DirectX 11.1 part, so I am kind of unsure of whether it was officially supported.  My impression was that the Intel UHD Graphics 600-series  was the floor for support, at least from looking over the CPUs listed at https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors.

Were you running these beta builds of Windows on unsupported hardware?  If so, that could be the reason this latest build is no longer installing.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

It was - but that support went away as of 233xx.  It doesn't effect i5 or above - or discrete GPUs from Nvidia, AMD, or Intel.

I have added two newer laptops to the testing pool = one Core i5 (Toshiba Satellite P945) and one Core i7 (Dell Inspiron 7786).  Both are touchscreen and both got a complete replacement of the Windows 7 that came on them  The Inspiron also supports the Windows Subsystem for Android and is - by far - the faster of the two.
