Hi @WolfThorr-0475,

Unfortunately your processor is not on Microsoft's supported list of Intel processors for Windows 11, you can view the supported Intel processors for Windows 11 over here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors

You can always send feedback by using the Feedback Hub app and file a report and request your processor to be supported.

Send feedback to Microsoft with the Feedback Hub app

Another option is to upgrade your processor to a supported one.

Windows 11 can be installed in either the supported or unsupported fashion.

The Windows upgrade assistant is set to check parameters for supported upgrades.

Most computers can clean install Windows 11.

Important files would need to be backed up and restored.

Drivers and applications would need to be reinstalled.

The registry and files can be modified so that the upgrade assistant does not detect the unsupported parameters.

Then upgrades can be performed.

The steps to modify the registry and files are on multiple websites.

Hi ,

Thank you for your question.

Recently the integrity check application has been undergoing updates to further expand the number of devices compatible with windows 11. It is true that some of the processors considered old were not being recommended for using windows 11, however this has been changed every week after week, because the idea is to reach as many users as possible with windows 11.

On the other note , You can install Windows 11 on devices that don't meet minimum system requirements. But that is not recommended.
