Fix “The PC Can’t Run Windows 11” Issue

2 . Once you have downloaded the Windows 10 ISO image, right-click on it and select “Mount”.
3 . The ISO image will be mounted as a drive. Now, move to the mounted drive and open the “Sources” folder.
4 . You have to select all the files except for “install.wim” or “install.esd“. Now, press “Ctrl+C” to copy the files. Repeating, make sure “install.wim” or “install.esd” is not selected when you copy the files.
5 . Now plug the pen drive on which you had flashed Windows 11. Open the pen drive and move to the same “Sources” folder.
6 . Paste the files you just copied. You can simply use the Windows 10 keyboard shortcut “Ctrl +V”. We are replacing Windows 11 files with Windows 10 ones except for the “install.wim” or “install.esd” file. When you get a prompt, click on the “Replace the file in the destination” option.
7 . Once all the files are replaced, you are almost done. Now, you have to just restart your computer and follow the same instructions I have mentioned in the above section. This time you will not face “The PC can’t run Windows 11” or a Driver-related error while installing Windows 11 on your PC.
