Windows 11 - Intel i7 6700HQ

Hello,

I just want to provide a feedback about the disappointment that my computer cannot be upgraded to Windows 11.
Actually, I cannot upgrade it to Window 11 purely because my CPU is Intel 7th gen i7 6700HQ 2.60 Ghz (not listed in processor list for W11)

My computer is running really well (Win10 professional 64 bits, Intel Core i7, 16Gb RAM, 1To SSD, 4K UHD ...) and there is really no strong reason for me to buy a new laptop to get Windows 11.

We are many people in this case and we would like to continue to use recent Microsoft OS on our computer.

Can you solve this problem ?

Thank you very much

Patrice

Hello,

I have the same issue than Patrice on a Asus Rog with a Intel i7 6700HQ 2.60Ghz with 32Gb Ram and 2 SSD
But the funny thing is that i can run Vm's with windows 11 on this same computer with no problem

Can you please patch this CPU issue so that we can upgrade our computers

I have the same problem with my Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK
It is a quite good laptop and I have no intention to buy a new one, because it's still really fast and runs W10 perfectly.
Only thing holding me from upgrading to W11 is the i7 6700HQ processor which is still quite powerfull.

Windows 11 can be clean installed on most computers.

Upgrades can be performed in a supported or unsupported fashion.

The unsupported fashion may included modifying the registry and files so that the Windows update agent does not detect the unsupported parameters.

There are many websites reporting the successful upgrades to windows 11 and Windows 11 clean installs on old computers.

These include desktops, laptops, and tablets.

Totally agree with everyone here stating that the Intel 7th gen i7 6700HQ 2.60 Ghz is more than capable of running Windows 11. I have the same processor on an HP Envy laptop with 16gb RAM and a Nvidia Geforce GTX 950m graphics card. That is beyond capable is laptops with a Celeron processor can run Windows 11. I could understand some i3s but come on top of the line i7s? Makes no sense at all. I hope Microsoft changes it and starts adding in more i5s and i7s to the list that are compatible with Windows 11!

Hi, I have the same problem. Does anyone know when are we going to be able to install Windows 11?

Hi AJMunzi-3216,

Windows 11 can be installed on most computers in a supported or unsupported fashion.

If the CPU is not on the supported list these are options:

a) Backup important files > clean install Windows 11

b) Modifying the registry of files so parameters are not detected by the Windows upgrade assistant

The issue with this method is that it's not an official pathway to update to Windows 11. I read that Microsoft will eventually figure it out and not provide proper updates to the computers that are not officially meant to run Windows 11. Also since it is not an official method doesn't that mean we would have to pay to get windows 11 version rather than having it be downloaded for free? I wouldn't want to pay for Windows 11 only to find out I won't be able to fully use it.

If the computer has at any time updated Windows 10 then licensing information is on Microsoft servers.

This enables end users to:

a) Clean install Windows 10 (free)

b) Clean install Windows 11 (free)

c) Upgrade to Windows 11 (free)

d) Replace their disk drive


It will always remain uncertain whether Windows or Microsoft Defender updates will or will not work.

Microsoft provides free support for Windows update failures.

This free support is on supported upgrades.

I don't understand why Microsoft couldn't just switch off the hardware dependent features with a disclaimer.
No one will trust MS after this fiasco.
