Windows 11 is looming on the horizon and many are wondering where the journey will take them. In this article I will look at the changes to the life cycle / WaaS (Windows as a Service) and the changes for businesses.
Now that Windows 11 is officially available, the support dates are also known. Therefore, I have extended the life-cycle diagrams to include Windows 11 and Microsoft Office 2021.
In this article I show the manual Windows 11 installation and the first insights. The version used is from the Beta Channel, the Windows 11 Enterprise 21H2 (OS Build 22000.194) version. Since Windows 11 is already installed on my test hardware via in-place upgrade, I use a Hyper-V VM for this. It is absolutely necessary to use a VM of the 2nd generation. SecureBoot and the TPM must also be activated in the VM, otherwise the installation will fail.
