    Huge thanks, got it accidentally also while playing around with upgrades last night. Funny part is you can basically upgrade with this Windows Vista all the way up to Windows 11 and keep legit key.

    Yeah, just MD5 it. Damn, I still wonder how I got pass Windows 8.1 x64 -> Windows 11. Since I tested with all the way through last night.

    The LabConfig registry ain't gonna work with this EXE and that's kinda problematic.

    Some other solution could be useful including some hack in system updates.

    Upgrade by fixed ISO.
    What system updates do you mean?

    Well, as long you have sort of start key to any NT6 oir NT10 system be that Vista, 7 ,8 ,8.1 it will digitally activate windows as long it's "upgraded" with correct "upgrade assistant" version to that windows (ex. vista goes to Windows 8 or 8.1, 7/8/8.1 to 10, 10 to 11).

    Yeah, this won't work at any case.

    Are you sure that the free upgrade from genuine activated 8.1 and (daz loader) activated win 7, now to 11 directly still works?
    Those registry keys are for boot.wim index 2 for clean installs.

    The appraiserres.dll renaming/removing/replacing should work.

    No this will not work, but upgrading old (Windows10Upgrade9252-1.4.9200.23258 or Windows10Upgrade9252-1.4.9200.23192) works to get digital license. Sorry, I am not patching with any loader I am testing legit keys. I think, if we simply want to install and activate we would be talking about DISM++ or WinNTSetup 5.00 beta as those will install without question.

    Tested removing 'appraiserxp.dll', not working and I am currently yeah, trying to upgrade with media/iso, but setup.exe which would upgrade existing Windows 10 (20H2) is still checking hardware. I think we would be closer, if I would disable WMI Management services or modifying their response to 'SetupDiag.exe' which all these new upgrade installers base.

    Those are the simple ways, yes:D:D
    Disable network during setup.

    I will run a test myself, but never had any legit win 8 key for testing so have to test with 7 > 11. Oh wait, we developed HWID on the go almost 5 years ago:D:D

    No you cannot disable network while passing upgrade versions of any windows. The whole idea is to upgrade the key thru installations until you get to Windows you need to be running. After that you wipe the HDD and start over install clean and use those keys to register the original machine product key to newest existing Windows build.

    YES, if we would be talking about my personal machines I would sure patch the hell out of windows activation, remove health tools, machine checks and disable defenders and firewalls beside anything else by Microsoft and use my own security solutions.

    Solution:

    Here we go.... NICE!

    Install: Windows11InstallationAssistant.exe & WindowsPCHealthCheckSetup.msi
    patch registry:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PCHC]
    "UpgradeEligibility"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\LabConfig]
    "BypassTPMCheck"=dword:00000001
    "BypassRAMCheck"=dword:00000001
    "BypassCPUCheck"=dword:00000001
    "BypassSecureBootCheck"=dword:00000001
    "BypassDiskCheck"=dword:00000001
    Re-run: Windows11InstallationAssistant.exe

    and upgrade works for Windows 10 (1909->)

    Did strings and those came up from the dll, exe and PC Health Check tools...

    That was a reply to your ISO upgrade test.

    Upgrade would not mean whiping the hdd, but i will leave you to your results, that's all what matters. After the upgrade resulted in a free hwid, it will now use the generic/retail key.

    It's nice, but I haven't mentioned you anywhere or hinted at you in any other way.
    Many thanks for such special attention.

    Ok, here's the deal just went thru the installation. This idea was from google searching a bit and well.

    Requirements:
    - Windows 10 20H2 ISO
    - Windows 11 (install.wim)
    - regedit

    ---

    That part went well, but there's a check with Windows 11 installer and used Windows 10 20H2 installation media with install.wim from windows 11 ISO. My system was Windows 10 20H2 activated by digital license. Basically just run the setup.exe after those registry tweaks and windows will install and activate Windows 11 with legit key.

    Needs a bit improvement... Need to test update engine, assuming this system has similar "compatibility check" hidden somewhere for updates (where workaround might be to install updates separately as they come out).

    Yeah, figured. being connected or disconnected to network doesn't seem to have affect, but made me test upgrade directly from setup at windows 10 "sources\"-folder which offers upgrade and keep files possibility and seems that does keep the digital license or Windows 10 over to Windows 11.

    Next need to find out how to get current activated product key out of windows 11. Seems none of usual toys work from MSKeyViewerPlus to productkey from nirsoft fails. I think need to dig it up from powershell or something.

    Why not generate genuineticket.xml, upgrade offline by fixed ISO and after upgrade finished, clipup the genuineticket.xml and all should be fine too.
