Yesterday night adventures on computer.

So I have a late 2013 iMac running macOS 10.15 Catalina.

I'm stuck with Catalina because newer version of macOS won't run on this old machine.

Yesterday, I have decided to install Windows 11 on this machine to see if it can run.

So I downloaded Windows.

Sadly I could not find my USB anywhere in the appartment. I sought for 2 hours, lifting furniture, beds and sofas... The dog was looking at me like I was crazy.

Giving up all hopes to find it, I decided to download Virtualbox for Mac.

2 CPU, 16G RAM, 3D acceleration are good specs to run Windows.

But then an error appeared. Running the virtual machine, Windows said : "This PC Can't Run Windows 11"

Searching the internet, I found some blog posts pretending to solve the problem by adding DWORD key using regedit...
BypassCPUCheck, BypassTPMCheck, BypassSecureBootCheck, and so on...

But none of these tricks worked, and I 'm still stuck with this "This PC Can't Run Windows 11" message again and again.

Before hitting the computer with rage and hate, I looked at my little sleepy dog. He was so quiet and peaceful. It was already well after sunset, but both of us go out for a long walk. It was so nice.

When we came back to home, I turned off the computer.

    What kind of dog? I don't have a dog, but I have four cats. Turning the computer off is my healthiest move.
