There are registry changes that allow Windows 11 to run on any machine that can run Windows 10. The registry changes were actually provided by Microsoft due to the adverse feedback they got on limiting what hardware was allowed to install Windows 11.

And later Win11 installed like that will fail.

In many cases, all one needs to do to install Win11 is to enable TPM/Secure boot in the BIOS. It's worked for me twice on friends laptops. If I enabled it on my Win10 desktop I could upgrade, but there's nothing on Win 11 I need, and there's few things I definitely don't need.

How do you know Win11 will fail?

Is there a way to install Win11 on unsupported hardware that won't fail?

Nothing that has the guarantee that you seem to want. It's referred to as unsupported hardware for a reason. As one friend of mine found out, the way he installed Windows 11 on his old laptop worked but about a year later broke horribly after a Windows Update.

Given that MS could easily even offer to install Win 11 without TPM x.x version it needs (Earlier TPM and some kinds not supported), or even have it work on less HW that Win10 needs and seems to want to help sell new PCs, I'd suspect MS will actually be looking for ways to brick installs on "unsupported HW", as they seem to have already done.

Most people don't need TPM. Loads of good HW doesn't meet MS Win 11 specs. This is the opposite to "Vista Ready"!
