    Celeron N2930 based mini PC (Zotac Zbox Mini CI320) with 1x8GB DDR3L RAM and iGPU.

    Also, have G41 chipset machine with Xeon X5460 (modded CPU to support LGA 775 socket) with 2x4GB DDR3 RAM and 1050Ti. I also have a Core2Quad Q9500 and a couple Core2Duo and Pentium Dual Cores from that era. I suppose they'll be fine too if I swap the CPU.

    Both obviously have been upgraded with an SSD as boot drive and run Win11 22621.1 just fine.

    Windows 11 installed in my old desktop with configuration Intel dual core 3.0 GHz, 500Gb HDD, 4 GB RAM, G41 express chipset motherboard
    Windows 11 seems to hang a lot, system load is too much. I don't know what is the problem.
    Can anybody guide me, what can be done or is the system issue?

    Most of the time this does indeed fix alot of issues with older computers/notebooks.

    If possible. Does stuff like IDE SSDs even exist?

    2005 Toshiba Satellite A100 A7 psannc-va705c that originally came with Vista.

    It has a Intel Centrino T2050 (1,6GHz) CoreDuo CPU.
    GMA945 Graphics
    2GB RAM

    I tried Windows 11 Home. It wasnt that slow, but...

    The device manager was a mess, filled with Error Code:12 on graphics, wifi, LAN, etc. etc. etc.
    "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use"

    Windows 7 ran decent though, but its runs "best" with a small Linux.

    I know there are people that managed to install Windows 10 on old Pentium II, but you should be at least able to surf "normally" and use word without lag. ;D

    Some screenshots? Since congratulations are in order, as it would be the oldest Intel Mobile CPU running 11 in this thread (Yonah, January 2006, the predecessor of my Merom, July 2006 one).

    I have to admit that I have wasted a fair bit of time playing with old computers. But generally speaking, if it doesn't have SATA connections (IDE only) it's probably not going to work out very well. Just my 2 cents worth.

    I might send in screenshots next week, as it is not my device and already handed out to someone else.
