If you want to test out the Widnows 11 Preview in your organization on some devices, here is a guide for it.
Join the Windows Insider program
First you have to go to the Windows insider Register page: https://insider.windows.com/en-us/register
Click Sign in now, and login with you Administrator credentials
click Register now
Now you have joined the Windows Insider Program, and you can close the Windows insider Register page.
Make a new Windows Update ring
Go to endpoint.microsoft.com – Devices and click on Windows 10 Update rings
Click on Create profile
Give the Windows Update ring a name, and click Next
Choose the Windows Insider – Fast Servicing channel, and click Next
Asign the group with your test user(s) or computer(s) and click Next and then Create.
- Keep in mind : See the info when you assign; When excluding groups, you cannot mix user and device groups across include and exclude.
- So if you have other update rings, and eg assign All Users, you can’t make a device group for the windows 11 ring device(s), and exclute the devices group from your other update ring. It will then still get the settings, and it will confligt whit your windows 11 ring. 🙂 see example here:
Just a example of windows update ring conflict
End user experience

Again sorry for Danish screenshot, now the update show up, and start downloading.
