Windows 11 Hardware
Remember that Windows 11 has more stringent hardware prerequisites. View them at Windows 11 requirements. Take note of the support for CPU generations and the TPM version.
The SOE Portal certified hardware library has now been extended to include Windows 11 hardware. Note that only hardware models that are supported by Microsoft will be added to this list.
Custom Start and Taskbar Layout
The method of providing a Start layout for Windows 11 has changed. Windows 11 utilises a .json file (instead of a .xml file). This information has been documented for both Windows 10 and Windows 11, along with relevant links to Microsoft articles, in the SOE Portal knowledgebase article titled Custom Start and Taskbar Layout.
