This post is in reference to the Tiny W11 article that Mr. Jim has written. I have this running on a Dell XPS
L702X laptop, that when new ran W7HP, was upgraded to W10, ran Linux, and is now running W11. The
Tiny W11 ISO download is very slow, and the only way I could get the ISO to boot, was to burn to a DVD.
Do not expect, frills and bells, it indeed installs without Onedrive, Edge Browser, trial to Microsoft Office, Word
and not sure it even has a Media Player, but VLC will take care of that.
What you get is W11 stripped down version, tha will run on a PC that has no TPM or UEFI support, and this old
laptop has neither, and it also installs to Local Account. Also Tiny W11 will not install to a PC, with unsupported
hardware, which I foiund out for myself, and since this machine has been activated with W10, then, and it is
activated with W11.
I so far have this installed on both of my old Dell laptops.
Since Dell does not support W10 or W11 for this laptop, I had to downlaod a couple of W8 drivers, that are
working just fine.
I am able to run two drives in this laptop. W11 is installed in a 240GB SSD and the original HDD is being used
for BKUP and DATA.
While I am very comfortable with running Linux, this W11 Install has been very clean and is working really well.
Thanks for Mr. Jim for finding this software. I have one more desktop machine that is running W10 and Gentoo
Linux, not sure if I want any W11 on the machine.
