Windows 11 - Stable & Licensed - T7810

Finished up with a nightmare SharePoint project and wanted to relax by possibly creating a headache for myself. Windows 11 is not supported on my 7810 (E5-2643 v3 X2, 58GB, of DDR4-2133P). I couldn't find much regarding my model after searching, so I messed around a bit. See attached for more stats. Took out personal info.

I didn't expect it to be so easy and require only minor fixes after. Tried the typical ways first, but processor and TPM warnings stopped me. With a simple trick, I successfully installed an evaluation ISO. Tried the same trick on the current release ISOs straight from MS. It even activated as Windows 11 Pro tied to my MS account. She's runnin' like a dream. The entire driver library from Dell Command Update worked perfect. I have no issues at all. Been stress testing, gaming, etc for 2 days now. Still runs great. Finally had a reason to enable virtualization, which is the Amazon AppStore. Runs the Android apps great. That store isn't finished of course. I also installed all of my IT-related management software and anything else I use for troubleshooting tools. I can't seem to produce an issue. Even the Event Log is barren of any serious error. Seems like it's just Windows 10 wearing a mask and carrying a bag of Android apps. Anyone else have any experience with their Precision and Windows 11? I'd be happy to post simple instructions and fixes for the minor issues I encountered.

  • I have a T3610 E5-1650 V2 and cannot currently upgrade to windows 11. I have read about work arounds but wondering if its time to upgrade. Not happy about losing my 88gb of DDR3 though! Even 1-2 year old Xeon machines my not be upgradeable so I shouldn’t feel too bad I suppose…….Are there any LGA2011 socket processors that are Windows 11 compatible?

      Rob Walsh I'll keep an eye open for your response.

  • Sorry. Just saw this. Hey I just Windows 11 on a Lenovo E520 laptop from 2012. Runs better than ever and it's a simple trick to bypass upgrade, processor reqs, TPM, and anything else. I'd be happy to talk to you in Discord. I've put Windows 11 on just about everything I've rebuilt in the last 2 months and fixed every issue that came along (Windows store breaking, TPM mgmt, disabling processor reqs in GPEdit.msc). I guarantee that 3610 can install it using the USB installer ESD/WIM swap trick.

  • Meant to say...

    I just installed Windows 11 *******

  • Also, I run my own IT company. I've been in IT 12 years and I wouldn't ever recommend you anything that would break your PC. Also, your license will auto-upgrade to Windows 11 after the USB trick.
