Re: Windows 11

So apparently there's a Registry hack:
You create the key AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup\ and set it to a REG_DWORD of 1. This tells the installer to ignore the TPM or the CPU.

Re: Windows 11

Eek.  Yeah, on a Mac it might be whole different story, though I did see a post last night in an M1 Mac group on FB where someone had W11 on their Mac, running it with 'Parallels' or whatever it's called.  I think I'll keep my Mac solely a Mac.  

 

Regarding the updates, it looks like that may not actually be true on all unsupported machines.  Quite a few of the ones I'm seeing in the W11 group that have put it on unsupported machines, including those without TPM, Secure Boot or even an adequate CPU are still receiving updates.  I thought about trying it on one of my unsupported mini PCs, but I'm still playing around with the two that do support it.  

 

Last night, however, I did have my AM02 freeze.  It's the first time that's ever happened with it.  It took a hard shut down to get it going again.  I don't know if it was because of W11 though.

I hope it wasn't because of W11, though potential issues like this is why i'm not keen on installing it yet. They'll be supporting W10 for a while, so I have the luxury of waiting a while. 

 

My Mac continues to be a paperweight, and I probably won't update it anymore, but will try to trade it in for a new one at some point.

Re: Windows 11

I may have to replace my early 2013 15" Retina MBP. The keyboard membrane is finally going. This started about 6 months ago where the power button was sketchy trying to turn it on. Now it doesn't work at all and I never shut it off until I go to bed. I have it automatically wake at 3am in case I get up early. If I bring it anywhere I just close the lid.

 

If I accidentally turn it off I have to physically open the bottom (9 tiny screws), disconnect the battery with a spudger, then reconnect it after a minute, replace the cover and plug the magsafe power cable back on. That's the procedure to boot a MacBook without a power button.

 

That was somewhat livable, but now the E, C, I and down-arrow buttons have started missing connections too. So, it's time.

 

The battery I replaced in it a while ago is still good tho. That was a fun job. The old one was swollen so bad it would press against the bottom of the trackpad so it wouldn't click anymore.

Replacing it with another MBP?  If so, are you waiting for the new ones later this month?

Likely with another MBP. Whether it's a new one or not depends on how flaky this one gets and timing.
