Microsoft announced the launch of its Windows 11-based Microsoft Validation OS, which is aimed primarily at software and hardware manufacturers. For example, hardware manufacturers can use the system during production to verify, diagnose and debug hardware, including to test driver compatibility.
Microsoft Validation OS can run on 128MB of RAM
Microsoft Validation OS is a command-line system that does not contain any drivers, and Powershell needs to be installed by itself. According to Microsoft’s instructions, if an enterprise wants to use the system, at least the driver needs to be packaged in advance, and you can either create and use bootable USB media and run Validation OS from RAM or apply the image directly to the PC’s hard drive.
Twitter user @NTDEV downloaded the image for testing. Since this particular Windows 11 is extremely streamlined, 128MB of memory can run, and the others seem to have nothing to introduce.
