Windows 11 widespread Taskbar, Upgrade & installation issues baffle PC owners


Microsoft announced roll-out of Windows 11 to eligible Windows 10 PCs on October 5. But it also revealed that not all eligible Windows 10 PC owners will get the update because of compatibility holds related to known issue. Now, many PC owners are taking to forums, official and otherwise and sharing stories about Windows 11 upgrade issue faced by them.

Some of the Windows 11 upgrade and installation issues are common and seem to be wide spread. One of the issue reported by many users is related to PC Health check confirming the eligibility to upgrade, while Windows update says “This pc doesn’t currently meet all the system requirements for windows 11”.

PC Health Check App says my computer is compatible for Windows 11, but Windows update says it is not

PC health check tells me my computer is ready from win 11(after enabling tpm 2.0

when i go to windows update it tells me that it is not compatible. Why ?????

Some users who even attempted to install Windows 11 by downloading the ISO file. They were greeted by “The processor isn’t supported by this version of Windows” message when trying to install using the ISO image.

I downloaded the release ISO to install on my Microsoft Surface Studio2.


Although the PC Health Check app promised that “This PC meets Windows 11 requirements” the Windows 11 setup stalled stating that ” The processor isn’t supported for this version of Windows”


This isn’t a good start.


Many PC owners faced installation issues while trying to install the update via “Windows 11 installation assistant” or otherwise.

Windows 11 Upgrade problem

Hi, I would like some assistance with a problem I have with upgrading to Windows 11 via the Installation Assistant. It takes about 1 hour to get the part where it says “Checking for Updates” and when it hits around 40%, the window closes and gets replaced with a tiny window stating “Windows 11 installation has failed”. There is a ‘ok’ button so I click it, and then a similar window (one a bit larger than the checking updates one) stating that ‘Something went wrong’. Then there is a small message saying that I need to turn off my anti-virus, which I do not have any anti-virus (my McAfee trial ran out and now I do not use an anti-virus) and there is an error code: 0x80070005


Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

One of the PC owner was however pleasantly surprised because of Windows 11 update availability for his PC, while PC Health check has marked his PC ineligible for Windows 11.

Windows insider and PC Health check both says I don’t meet requirements for windows 11, but in windows update “upgrade to windows 11” is present.

Coming to another widespread issue that many have reported is about the Windows 10 Taskbar appearing after installation of Windows 11. More users have reported this issue.

Windows 11 taskbar looks like windows 10 and wont work

Hey so recently I updated to Windows 11 from windows 10 and my taskbar looks the same as Windows 10 and it doesn’t respond when I click on the windows button or search so I have no way of opening apps I don’t have on my desktop or taskbar. Is there anything I can do to fix this? I did use the beta build of Windows 11 before going back to windows 10 because some apps were not compatible and it was not like this.
