    Is it OK to upgrade to win 11 pro from win 10 pro? Also, will it stay activated?

    TIA

    I suggest before upgrading pl install it as guest os on any virtualisation software so that you will expereince it well before using it as your main os.

    yes if win10 is activated from which you want to upgrade to win11 Insider build but not a public release it will stay activated.

    you must have a compatible hardware which has tpm plus secure boot set to enabled or else there is a workarround by st1ckys to bypass it for clean install .

    So a public release wont stay active if it is used once the RTM is released?

    I think "secure boot enabled" is not a requirement.
    I have been able to both upgrade windows 10 and a clean install of windows 11 (on a separate SSD) without secure boot enabled.
    Of course, TPM and UEFI-GPT are a must !
    Regards

    Never follow the flock, always test things yourself.

    Is really likely that most people took the presumed requirements as whole, likely very few people tried a mixed situation with tpm enabled but secure boot disabled as the user you quoted did.

    Perhaps given the enforcements (real or supposed) are just in the old school setup and not the OS itself, practically the problem isn't existent

    W11 (as today) runs fine on any AMD64 capable machine no matter the age, no matter of GUID, MBR,UEFI, TPM or whatnot.

    If you can bypass this, how can it possibly be a must?

    Is a preview release, maybe that is the explanation.

    I then he meant that, according to his experience, secure boot is not mandatory, but UEFI and GPT are.
