Because this is the DEV version, when installing and using it, it is impossible to avoid confusing errors. After the Windows 11 ReviewOS Installation Instructions video received many questions and in summary, I found there are 3 common errors as follows:
1. THE PC MUST SUPPORT SECURE BOOT
Getting this error is because the machine has not turned on SECURE BOOT in the BIOS. We just need to restart the machine and enter the BIOS and then turn it on. Usually Secure Boot will be located in Boot Option, near the area with UEFI Boot.
Because each company will have its own way to enter the Bios, I cannot guide you exactly. The trick is to go to Google to search for keywords: Enable UEFI in bios + your brand (for example, enable uefi in bios dell)
So you will find Secure Boot right away because it is located quite close to the UEFI section. But if you are lazy to enter the BIOS to turn it on, read all of item 2, there is a way to skip it!
After reading this far, you also learn a little more to know what Secure Boot is! This is a security standard developed to ensure that PCs only start with software that is trusted by the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). This will prevent malicious software from running on computer startup. When this option is enabled, only Microsoft certified drivers will be run.
2. THE PC MUST SUPPORT TPM 2.0
The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is designed to provide hardware-based, security-related functionality. In a nutshell, it’s a security chip in your computer. You can find TPM 2.0 enabled in the BIOS or follow the steps below to bypass it!
We need to replace the appraiserres.dll file in the sources folder of the Windows 11 installer. This will not only help you bypass TPM 2.0, but also bypass the Secure Boot error.
Download appraiserres.dll file here and extract to get the dll file. You still create USB with Rufus as usual. Then go to the USB (where you put the installer, go there), continue to the sources folder. Here you overwrite your uploaded appraiserres.dll to the existing file. That’s it and Windows 11 is ready for you to install.

3. THE PC DOESN’T MEET THE MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
If the device you use can’t install Windows 10, skip this trick, it won’t help either! But strangely, there are devices running intel Gen 8 chips that still have the error that the minimum configuration does not meet.
For those of you who are using Windows 10 normally, but when installing Windows 11, there is an error, there is a way as follows:
- Mount or extract the Windows 11 installer and go to the sources folder, copy the install.wim file to the hard drive.
- Use Rufus to burn the Windows 10 installer to USB, go to the sources section of this new installer and delete the install.esd file. Replace it with the install.wim file we just got from the Windows 11 installer
This way you will successfully install Windows 11, details on how to do it, please see this video:
