The ONEEXPLAYER is one of the most powerful gaming laptops to date, with support for up to an Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 2TB of storage, and an 8.4″ display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
But ONEEXPLAYER originally shipped with Windows 10. Want to upgrade to Windows 11? You can do it…but you have to do it very carefully.
Windows 11 has some built-in features designed with gaming in mind, including support for DirectStorage, which speeds up game loading and rendering times, support for automatic conversion of many games to high dynamic range when used with HDR-enabled displays, and a built-in Xbox app.
But Windows 11 also has strict system requirements. Among other things, Microsoft only officially supports the installation of the operating system on computers with TPM 2.0.
While he was an ONEEXPLAYER she has TPM 2.0 module, it is disabled by default. One Netbook explained that there are two ways to upgrade your gaming laptop to Windows 11:
- Use a script that allows you to bypass TPM 2.0 requirements.
- Unlock/Enable TPM 2.0 on ONEEXPLAYER.
Both options come with some risks, but the second one is probably the best option for most users. This is because although there are scripts that make changes to the Windows registry, allowing you to install Windows 11 on computers without TPM 2.0, Microsoft does not promise to provide feature and security updates for computers that have Windows 11 installed using this method.
So far Microsoft Do It appears to be providing updates. But there is no guarantee that this will continue.
Also, installing Windows 11 using this method will require a clean install. You will end up erasing all user programs and data, so you will need to backup all your data before starting, and it can be difficult to reinstall everything after the upgrade is complete.
Unlocking the TPM 2.0 module allows you to install Windows 11 using Windows Update, allowing you to upgrade without erasing any apps or data. And if all goes right, you also have 10 days to decide whether or not you really want to continue using Windows 11. she do not like that? You should be able to undo during that time period.
But as I said, there are some risks involved in using this method as well. First, you will need to download and run the BIOS update utility from One Netbook. Firmware update always comes with a bit of risk, as this is the root software that allows operating systems like Windows to interact with computers.
Second, One Netbook notes that ONEXPLAYER devices come with three different types of screens. You sure NEED TO CHECK THE LABEL ON YOUR ONEEXPLAYER TO FIND THE TYPE OF SCREEN THAT YOUR SYSTEM HAS Before running BIOS update / TPM unlock, because it will ask you if you have a screen of type 01, 02 or 03. Enter the wrong number and you will be left with a black screen.
Well, there are enough warnings out of the way. Do you want to upgrade your ONEEXPLAYER to Windows 11? You can find download links for the TPM 2.0 Bypass Utility and the BIOS / TPM 2.0 Unlock Tool on the ONEXPLAYER Indiegogo Updates page. Look for the October 19, 2021 update.
One Netbook also provides written and video instructions:
