Tiny11 is a lightweight stripped-down version of Windows 11 that can easily run on low-end PCs.

Windows 11, even though very popular, may not be supported by your old or low-end PC and Laptops owing to its hardware limitations – TPM 2.0 and high RAM requirements.

But if you want to run Windows 11 on your old PC, you can download Tiny11 ISO. Some people also call it Windows 11 Lite.

A developer named NTDEV came up with a basic, simplified version of Windows 11 called Tiny11. It is super lightweight, getting rid of all that extra stuff we usually don’t need. The best part is that it can run on just 2 GB RAM and 8 GB storage.

You will get the download link to Tiny11 below and then a tutorial to install the OS on our computer beyond in the later segment.

Install Tiny11 from ISO

A. Make Tiny11 bootable from ISO

Now that you have downloaded the Tiny11 ISO, its time we create a bootable from it, in order to install it.

You can use your flash drive or even a DVD, but the former is comparatively faster.

Here, we will use Rufus, a free tool, to create a Tiny11 bootable USB in no time. It even has an in-built option to bypass TPM 2.0 but we don’t need it with this OS.

  1. Plug in your flash drive (with 8GB or more space) and then launch Rufus on your computer.
  2. Select the flash drive from the drive menu. If you have multiple flash drives plugged in then you will need to select it.

    And if you only have a single drive plugged in, then you can leave it after ensuring that the correct one is selected.
  3. Then click select and locate your Tiny11 ISO file for creating the bootable drive. The ISO file’s name will appear in the boot selection menu.
