I just finished setting up my new 12th Gen DIY laptop with (I thought) Windows 11 Home via a USB install. But it looks like I somehow installed Windows 10 instead. How do I upgrade it to Windows 11 now? I’m looking at Windows Update and it’s supposed to show a way to upgrade to Windows 11 if my device is eligible, but it only shows a “Getting ready for Windows 11” message and a link to check hardware requirements. I’m mystified now. Everything I read online says that the 12th Gen DIY should support Windows 11, but I see no way to do this.
I got the link I needed very quickly from Framework Support. What I needed was the manual download of the Windows 11 Installation Assistant – https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2171764. I still don’t understand why the Windows 11 upgrade wasn’t appearing in Windows Update in Windows 10, but the installation assistant allowed me to upgrade and I’m all set now.
This is the ticket here. Microsoft got a lot of negative feedback when they were pushing the update directly through windows update.
