When it says it isn't currently supported....does that mean it might be in the future?

Hi there,

Only 8th generation processors are supported for Windows 11. This is been specified by the PC manufacturers for improved security and performance. It seems i5-7200U is not on the list of supported processors.

Windows 11 supported Intel processors

This is been specified by the PC manufacturers for improved security and performance -> You mean... to force a bunch of people on buying a new PC if they want to use Windows 11.

Unfortunately, i5-7200U processor is not compatible for Windows 11, according to Microsoft.

Check with official Windows 11 list of supported processors: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors

The list for Windows 11 contains processors that have less capacity and according to helth check the i5-7200U fulfulls all requirements. So why is it not supported? I think I need an explanation.

I have a similar problem only for the Intel Core i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60Ghz. The processor is listed on the support hardware list.

This is CRAZY.
Well, let’s call this a funny event NUMBER ONE.
Solved the 2 issues that Microsoft stated on my screen was the reason for my system’s inability to upgrade to windows 11 from windows 10.
The surprise was the 3rd issue, my CPU is not compatible (i7-7700 CPU). Why was I not talked about the 3rd issued before? I would have never spent a minute of my time trying to enable secure boot and TPM.
Totally my fault, well I must admit partially maybe 12%. I should have read all the details at Microsoft web site before attempting this process, right? Ok Maybe 8% is … now thinking how little help they offer…… 3 percent is my fault. Ok done with this part.

Here some details on the journey:
It took me almost 2 hours trying to figure our the problem and solve the boot and TPM issue.
Well Let’s call this funny event NUMBER ONE A.
I would not recommend solving this issue through Microsoft’s help links or website. Maybe being too big of a company is a bad business model. It makes it near impossible to tailor a solution for each costumer.
Long story short, 3-minute video from YouSomeSite is equivalent to 2 hour of feeling inediqute at the Microsoft help site. Did not included the link here, not sure if that’s allowed. Maybe Microsoft can have a link to some outside site to help their customers? Or just tell the people who are making the help solutions online to create a short video that visually solves the problem? This might be a good idea.

Well, let’s call this a funny event NUMBER TWO.
I do like Microsoft and appreciate them for all their great products. This seems ironic and funny to me. Lately added another service something called 365 for the family for about $100 a year. It gives us access to some software and 1T online backup, up to 5 individual family members.
Maybe go to SomeAliOnline site and order 10 portable backup drives at cost of $10 each. After a quick search, there is a 16T portable backup drive for $10. Yes, that’s correct $10 for 16T of space, that would be 1,000 gigabytes times 16. This could be a very good alternative with combination of free opensource programs.

You are correct. Thank you for that. I clicked the Windows 10 21H1 link and not the Windows 11 link.

It's too bad this Dell Optiplex 3050 is only a year old.

I have the same processor. The i7-8700 is on the list but not the i7-7700. I'd be interested to know what the difference between those two processors is. You can edit the registry and install Windows 11 manually, but I'd rather know the reason they've excluded the 7700 from the list before doing that.

Yep! My last windows laptop. Own a 4 year old i5-6300U @ 2.40Ghz Surface Book, spent a fortune on this! - only to find out it will not be updated to Windows 11. Microsoft will support Windows 10 with updates till 2025 - NO THANKS!

The MS preclusion of CPUs that aren't even 4 years old yet is stupid and needless (I have a Core i5-7500, this processor was released in Jan of 2017). Does MS even care what this is going to mean for third world countries where businesses are poorer and can't afford all the lastest wiz-bang CPUs that AMD and Intel foist on the market place. Not to mention the landfills in the U.S. And this in the middle of what is estimated to be a world wide 12-18 month CPU chip shortage? The only saving grace is that MS will support Windows 10 until October 14th, 2025 - but there are going to be a lot of people in the world that will not switch to Windows 11 and beyond if this is the game MS is choosing to play. They have multiple-millions of dollars of investments in machines that still have years of productive life left in them. MS can kiss goodbye to a lot of customers as those customers begin switching to Linux as their only viable alternative for making long term use of their hardware investments. 2025 gives those people plenty of time to come up to speed on Linux :>)

I am also using i5-7200U. This bad that Microsoft is not supporting these processors. They need to start supporting these processors. Or at least they need to explain why they are not supporting these processors.
