NUC6i5SYH TPM 2.0.JPG

 

Having followed your instructions to view the Advanced Technologies section of the ARC site, I found the above information, ...which still leaves me hanging in the air!

Can someone give a definitive answer from this, or do you need me to provide more information?

As I understand it, W11 will be delivered via the Microsoft Updates Service, to those machines which are compatible with their requirements.

"Can someone give a definitive answer from this,"

 

Yes, it's a definite "maybe."  It should work but it's too soon to tell for sure ... now that Microsoft has moved away from Intel and even become somewhat of a competitor, they seem determined to cause problems!

Thank you Clarice, and Good Morning!

Maybe this will herald the Rise and rise of Linux! ;D

Well, I suppose that was something that we, the proletariat were permitted to do under the "old version" of the website

...I thought, I had managed to upload my "Scary Wally" gif, but it only took the first frame! 

I have him on my Windows desktop here:-

Hello Clarice, my, my you must be craving your fava beans tonight!
I've had three email alerts that you are talking about me!
I'm currently in Spain, "looking forward to having an old friend for dinner".
Can I add you to the menu?

Please do.  I received 392 messages from him in less than two hours.

At this time, Windows 11 can run on any system that can run Windows 10.

You may have to bypass some of the checks to do so but once installed, Windows 11 works normally.

I have confirmed this all the way down to a rp5700. That is a Core2Duo system that came preinstalled with Windows XP.

The checks that will prevent an upgrade to Windows 11 (at this time) include Intel CPUs needing to be at last generation 8 so your NUC is not natively compatible. You absolutely can force it though if you want.

Thanks for that BHarr8, indeed bad news as I built this machine with the intent that it should serve my meagre requirements in using Microsoft's O.S's into the future.

I don't consider 6 years to be an adequate vision of my future, it may however be the extent of Microsoft's future with me!

 

If this is the future, I see a mass migration to the penguin!

Hello @six-h

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. 

We hope that the assistance provided by the community has been helpful.


Also, we would like to inform you that due to the Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i5SYH has been discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, but perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help. You may also find the Discontinued Products website helpful to address your request. Thank you for your understanding.

Please keep in mind that this thread will no longer be monitored by Intel.

 

Best regards,

Andrew G.

Hello Andrew G, thanks for linking me to the "discarded customer website", this might be helpful in the future if indeed I could figure out which particular "Bin" I should root in since your link is somewhat generic.

I was trying to get them to help me with my NUC NUC6i5SYH  too but was shown the door also.  My NUC still has many of the hardware and software they still use but they refuse to help with " Legacy" products.  I don't know what on earth makes them think I'll buy "new" when they will just discard me when the "new" is soon "old."...  I have a power button that works intermittetly  (I think it's the power button itself) but they refuse to even talk to me about possible fixes, new part etc.  BOO!

Hi @sudiki 

Did you applied a cleaning solution to the Power Switch as advised here?

Hi sudiki, sorry to hear that you too have been given the "Shift Delete" treatment!

I am very disillusioned  with the "Intel Community", I was lucky enough to receive much guidance from Scott Pearson when building mine and felt secure in the knowledge that I could call on such expertise in the future!

...Seems they are following the Microsoft route of planned obsolescence and to hell with Global warming!

I hope the problem turns out to be as simple as dirty contacts 'cos the machine is really very good.

I'm looking to purging my life of Microsoft products once support for "10" ceases as I don't need the hassle.

Linux runs well on several other (even older!) machines I have without problems so I expect it will be really fast on this NUC.

Good luck.

Hi @six-h six-h

 

Good to hear from you again!  I think most people are happy if they get 5 years out of their computer.  Technology moves so fast, an old computer just can't keep up.  The makers obviously obsolete some things on purpose, but I think it's hard to add new technology to old machines.  It would be like trying to put back-up cameras and radar on old cars ... no one expects that!

Baloney.  You must be an Intel shill in disquise.  1st of all it depends on what you want it to do/use it for.  2nd of they can be upgraded, it's just parts and software in a box.

Hello Clarice!

...No one expected the Spanish Inquisition either, ...according to Monty Python! 

The thing is I am asking nothing more of my NUC today than I expected of it back in 2016.

This ecosystem you are proliferating is one of the myriad reasons that our planet is going to Hell in a hand cart

You have that a little bit confused. Where's the tmp is a part of ptt. Intel just includes it in their custom package.

It's in your device manager section for security devices.

And the compatibility check tool is back in the download section. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-11#pchealthcheck
