❗ Following steps have to be executed each time the installation media is booted. Registry edits are lost because installator doesn't persist its state between reboots.

To bypass the requirements check (ex. when installing Windows on a virtual machine, purposely using less resources):

Manual

  1. Go back to the first screen. image.png

  2. Launch command line interface by pressing Shift + F10. Run regedit. image.png

  3. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup. RMB on that node to add new key LabConfig. image.png image.png

  4. RMB on the right panel and add new "DWORD (32-bit)". Call it BypassTPMCheck. Double click and change value to 1. Click "OK". image.png image.png
  5. Add three more values the same way: BypassSecureBootCheck, BypassCPUCheck, BypassRAMCheck. You should end up with the following setup: image.png
  6. Close Registry Editor and continue with the installation.

Fancy

  1. Create *.reg file with following content.
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\LabConfig]
    "BypassSecureBootCheck"=dword:00000001
    "BypassTPMCheck"=dword:00000001
    "BypassCPUCheck"=dword:00000001
    "BypassRAMCheck"=dword:00000001
    
  2. Add this file to the Windows ISO installer using this guide.
  3. Boot machine with patched ISO

  4. On the first screen launch command line interface by pressing Shift + F10

  5. Type regedit [/sources/*reg] where [/sources/*reg] is the path to your REG file. image.png image.png
  6. Close Registry Editor and continue with the installation.
