    Microsoft can't even make their apps to work correct. And this company make the most used OS in the world:bigconfused:


    Windows 11 shows Intel’s decade-old Pentium 4 CPU as supported windowslatest.com - October 19, 2021

    As you can see in the above screenshot, Intel Pentium 4 661, which has only one core and 3.6Ghz of clock speed, is listed as a supported processor in the PC Health Check. That’s possibly because Microsoft forgot to update the strings needed to reflect “unsupported status” in the PC Health Check Tool for this particular Intel family.

    Ha, ha, ha. Bad coding. They should have used a whitelist of supported processors, and set everything else to be shown as unsupported by default.

    Or, even better... just mind their own damned business and leave people alone when it comes to choosing whatever OS and whatever hardware they feel like using. They should not have any say in the matter. If it doesn't work well, let that be on the user. If it does, then be happy for them that they get to make their own decisions.

    This is the thing - enthusiasts are not the target market anymore.
    MS just tries to go after the "modern user", the type who most of the stuff does on phone and just occasionally uses the PC, hence the move towards mobile looking design and practices (i.e. prioritizing useless crap like emotes instead of actually useful features).

    HI All, I have a Metabox P670RE-G (Now running a Clevo generic BIOS as it was stuck on 5.10 with a Keyboard shift bug).

    In any case, I loaded Windows 11 on it (I know its not supported because of the i7 6700).

    But has anybody else with a Clevo Laptop had an issue where the Laptop successfully boots to the logon screen every 2nd boot?
    (Gets stuck at the Vendor Logo, eventually turns itself off, or sits there for ages with the fans pegged @ 100%).

    If I then power it on again (if it turns itself off), or reboot it via CTRL-ALT-Delete, it boots successfully?

    Happy to roll-back to Windows 10, but was hoping it may be fixable (which is why I tried the Clevo BIOS in the first place0>

    Cheers All!

    It was doing the same with the original BIOS? Have you tried a different SSD/HDD? I've seen circumstances with very similar behavior when a drive was in the process of dying.

    Was doing it on the Original Metabox bios which is why I tried the Clevo one.

    I'm using an NVME, SSD and HDD in the Laptop currently, don't recall seeing the issue with Windows 10.

    Thanks for the assistance/Information.
