    I may have been one of the unfortunate ones to have clicked installed a bit early. It magically worked this time. May be the <10 min builds had a flaw :rolleyes:

    For those who can't change the Insider channel - I got it to work by changing with regedit:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\Applicability
    BranchName = Dev

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\UI\Selection
    UIBranch = Dev

    Restart and check for updates :)

    Well actually it stops at 8% complaining about TPM... but it's a start

    On my M1 MacBook Air, there was a TPM error. Tried again the second time and it just proceeded and installed just fine. So far so good!

    Unfortunately after a fresh download of the VHDX and Parallels 16.5, it's giving me the same Your PC does not meet the minimum hardware requirements message much like in the TPM thread. I'll be looking for any updates from Microsoft and/or Parallels for fixes.

    Windows 11 update was available to me this morning. I was surprised as when I checked the day before under the Windows Insider settings it said my system did not meet the minimum standard for Windows 11. Well anyway I pressed the install button this morning (after I created a backup image), and the install worked perfectly. Parallels tools installed fine, reboots were quick, system seems snappy and responsive. Coherence works well (moved task bar to left and shrunk dock). Office 365 opens, store opens etc. A lot better experience when compared to the 6 months ago when the M1 was first introduced.

    I also got hit at the 8% mark, but unfortunately re-attempting did not solve the issue for me. According to the note in https://kb.parallels.com/en/122702

    :confused:

    Interesting my virtual machine upgraded from 10 to 11 without problems. I check the configuration of the VM and there is no option to add a TPM chip. Either way things are working fine without it at present.

    I had the 8% problem too and I found a very... Cryptic workaround haha.
    I downloaded the latest Windows 11 insider preview from UUPDUMP, let the download script do its magic.
    Then I extracted the ISO and copied it over to the C:/ drive in my existing windows 10 on ARM installation.
    Then I followed this video:
    And finally, I opened setup.exe and it just worked !

    Try restarting Windows. After restart update went fine without TPM 2.0 warning.

    I can confirm shutting it down and turn it on again worked for me

    Thanks for sharing this! Previously I also got the error at 8%. Inspired by that YouTube video I tried just closing the automatic installer triggered by Windows Update when it gave the error, then followed the instructions in the video and copied in the patched DLL file. Then I went back to Windows Update, told it to 'Fix Issues' and it looks to be installing fine! (Currently at 41%)

    Any details on what was selected when you did the Disk Cleanup? I tried at Full cleanup including system files, restarted, and I'm still getting the TPM 2.0 error.

    I have made a video tutorial for installing Windows 11 ARM, which includes a workaround for the TPM 2.0 issue:

    For me the same.
    Installed Windows 11 with a big surprise. And even I have "only" a mac book Air the M1 chip makes a great job. superfast startup, speedy start of programms and apps, performance in general.

    Wait my problem may have been that I was trying to upgrade from an older Build 21370. I made a copy of my current build 21390 and tried again.
    On the first attempt i got the TPM error but on the second attempt the update is proceeding.

    It's installed, but Microsoft isn't happy about it:
