Internet Connection & Microsoft Account Windows 11 Home edition requires internet connectivity and a Microsoft Account to complete device setup on first use.
Switching out of Windows 11 Home in S mode also requires internet connectivity.

For the Processor, it requires at least Intel 8th generation processors or AMD Zen 2, as well as Qualcomm 7 and 8 series. Right now the Windows team is testing with Windows Insiders and partner with OEMs to run Windows 11 on Intel 7th generation and AMD Zen 1. Over the time, the CPU requirement might be lower when the public released.
