After upgrading my Win10, I decided to just fully wipe the drive clean and reformat to a clean install. If you did the Win11 install through the Media Creation Tool (ISO to a flash drive) it'll work fine.

Thanks for the reassurance. Figured that was the case.

Still, I'm happy with Windows 10 for now. I don't feel a need to go to 11. I'll wait a year or so for it to mature a bit, then make the switch.

I'm in the process of installing Windows 11 on my Surface Pro 3 (2014), since it's "supported" by Microsoft no additional regedits were needed, the necessary key was already there (probably a Win10 patch added it). It's taking a bit more time than my Core i9 desktop PC :lol:

Yesterday I also updated my son's 2019 Dell G5 (straight forward process). Will try with my Surface Pro 6 (2019 as well) later.

After these, I have 2 other computers to upgrade, a 2016 Dell Inspiron 5675 (daughter's) and my good old 2015 X99 setup (currently being used by my wife). These does not comply with the "hardware requirements" however I'm pretty sure are more than capable of running Windows 11 (minus the TPM).

Don’t notice a problem running it on my ryzen 5900x, it will just be a speed boost when they release the patch, and I’m sure I won’t notice it again.:p

Are you all on Windows 11. Was it worth the upgrade? First time seeing this thread.

Some of the UI changes might take some getting used to, but you can always tweak things to bring some of the old menus back. So far I've seen no issues at all. Everything runs at least as well as Win10 did, because it basically *IS* Win 10 with a new theme. It's free, so no reason not to do it if you've got relatively new hardware.

KAC Oct 9, 2021 01:20 PM

OK. Just updated my son's computer. There is no real difference. I heard that games run faster. Anything I need to do to get that going?

Not yet. DirectStorage is what you're thinking of, and developers have to use it when they code games. It doesn't come for free, as far as I understand it.

game prices up to 169.99 ea :bleh: :p




got it on my surface pro 4 had to regedit to get it
seem to work fine and I like it on the touch screen

but if I don't get updates I will have to roll it back

Munkus Oct 9, 2021 04:27 PM

"Doesn't come free" meaning it doesn't make games faster unless the developers code for it.

Ok thanks. :up:

lmchv Oct 10, 2021 05:58 PM

My 3DMark scores didn't increase :p

My wife doesn't want the upgrade on her main desktop. I just updated her Surface Pro 6 and everything went smooth. Will let her use the tablet first before updating her desktop.

Nunz Oct 11, 2021 08:27 AM

I am consistently scoring higher in benchmarks with Win11 than Win10. I love this so far .. everything has been running SO smooth.

KAC Oct 11, 2021 09:40 PM

Do you have any benchmarks to showcase the improvement? Maybe placebo?

demo Oct 11, 2021 10:43 PM

Not sure about higher benchmark FPS but win11 UI feels significantly faster than win10. MS say they achieved this 'instantaneous response' from CPU and memory optimisations, and direct storage like function built into windows itself.

Looking forward to titles with DS functionality and quick resume. DS is also meant to help with CPU bound game performance as it removes software bottleneck. NV's version, RTX-IO, should be sweet as well. The experience should be 'closer to the metal' like consoles.

Aside from that Auto-HDR seems to work pretty well in the games I've tried. Pretty happy with it overall.

KAC Oct 11, 2021 11:53 PM

Ok will try auto HDR. That one seems like a dope option given I have a HDR 600 monitor :bleh:.

Not placebo. Timespy graphics score went up ~700pts and CPU score went up about 200-300. That's against a tweaked Win10 with InSpectre enabled to turn off software mitigations.

It's the real deal.

I also use Auto-HDR even though the HDR on my monitor is garbage. It works far better than Win10, where I had it disabled 24/7.

Nascar24 Oct 12, 2021 10:39 AM

Auto-HDR seems to crash my crap Sony X900H TV when it feels like it(TV firmware issue not Windows 11) I am still using as my main monitor but it does look good in game since I never used it in Windows 10.

Munkus Oct 12, 2021 11:21 AM

Does anyone else have this bug?
1. Open Settings
2. Click Windows Update
3. Click Advanced Options
4. Click Optional Updates.
5. Settings window crashes and disappears.

Repeat steps 1-3, then click Configured Update Policies.
Settings window crashes

The workaround for this is to search specifically for Optional Updates or Configured Update Policies in the Settings search box. Those items open then. It's only when you select them from the Settings>Update>Advanced Options window.

Nunz Oct 12, 2021 03:42 PM

Doesn't crash for me in either scenario, Munkus.

Huh. Weird.

andino Oct 12, 2021 05:21 PM

How do you move all the crap from the center over to the far right?

NM... Found it.

andino Oct 12, 2021 05:44 PM

So here is something strange and new. I installed Windows 11 and restarted. It's been 20 minutes and my water pump is going up and down at idle. Do the ol CTRL-SHIFT-ESC and look at the CPU and it's up and down a bit. Go over to the ethernet and it's downloading like crazy! 100MB/s downloads and then spikes to the SSD and CPU 20 minutes after install.

Strange.

andino Oct 12, 2021 05:54 PM

Wish there was some way to add another sports widget to the widget thingy. I can like Hockey and NCAA Football. I'd really like to see the scores for both without having to customize the widget to see it.... FFS....

Can't repeat.

Might want to run a chkdsk and a sfc /scannow.

Nascar24 Oct 12, 2021 07:29 PM

Well, did a few updates from windows update and updated to the latest Nvidia driver and sure as chit Windows 11 didn't like something that was going on. It might have been some update in the tray trying to run after going into event viewer. Screen was crashing, Windows Explorer was not loading so I had to do some restarts of it, I think things are back to normal after several restarts and screen crashes.:eek: I definitely think my piece of chit X900H does not like the HDR implementation. I would change over to my LG C9 but don't like the idea of going from 65" to 55".

Nunz Oct 12, 2021 07:34 PM

I haven't had any issues at all. Strange!

Only thing I don't like, but is understandable, is when changing GPU drivers I have to re-enable HDR :lol:
