Running Windows 11 on Surface Pro 5 2017


New Member
The Surface Pro 5 (2017) is currently not supported for Win11

It is disappointing that a relatively new machine coming from MS cannot run Win11

There is a semi-official Regedit hack that can allow the check to be bypassed and win 11 to be installed


But there is a lack of clarity around whether Win11 will actually run on SP5

Has anybody installed Win 11 on SP5 using the hack and been successful?

Do Windows Updates run OK?

I have Surface Pro 5 i5 8GB
I am running it on my Surface Pro 5 Advanced LTE.
I used this manual: Ways to install Windows 11

It is running just fine and I am happy I did it. Finally there is good speech recognition for Dutch!

Every now and then I have a BSOD and if I do, there is a chance I will get one or more again after a while. But it is ok
