    <<...You can go use the upgrade assistant...>>

    I think his point is that Microsoft doesn't seem to be pushing out Win11 to any older platforms that anyone knows of (i.e., are they delaying for some reason?)...

    But... you could have all that with Windows 10 and its tiles. And then the rest of use wouldn't be cursed with this mess.

    And **** widgets. I don't want your ads Microsoft.

    I know, but although I loved my Lumia 950XL, I never warmed to the Win10 live tiles. And second, ever since a Start Menu corruption took me a harrowing Sunday to recover from, all tiles have been removed from mine! :eek:

    Had been, no? And it seems you got it sorted using something that was... designed to repair Windows.

    Meanwhile in Windows 11 land, even at launch they haven't deigned to even give us folders. I honestly don't know what's going on at Redmond, but perhaps someone should check the water?

    Ah, got it. Could be...it requires running a compatibility check (especially for TPM 2.0) anyway, so no way around it through the assistant anyway.

    I did repair it, but the whole ordeal made me reconsider whether I actually needed live tiles, and for now I am running with just the app list and zero live tiles. Crash me once, shame on me, ....

    So one of our customers decided to use the upgrade assistant to update a handful of systems for experience with their early adopter users.

    Unfortunately it didn't go well. They are a HP customer and on their Spectre systems with any browser, every time there is a page refresh, the screen goes black. It can vary from just a second or so to seeming to have hung the system if the page is slow to load.

    It occurs with all browsers, though it appears to be worst with Edge, but does also happen with Chrome and Opera.

    So far HP hasn't been able to pinpoint the cause either, though they suspect it's a combination of older BIOS and a detection glitch because of that when installing the graphics drivers.

    They were able to revert their systems to Windows 10 fortunately, but at the very least it looks like more reasons why it's not being offered through update to most systems.
