while trying to check for windows 11 compatibility on my pc . I got a message that my pc is not compatible.
The message " This PC can't run Windows 11: The PC must support secure boot"
what does that mean? Please help!!

I would not be overly concerned at this point regarding the Microsoft PC health checker reporting your PC can't run W11.
I found this document regarding hard and soft floor system requirements, so we are just going to have to wait and see what happens when we actually try to upgrade older PC's to W11...
According to the above document, you may be able to upgrade to W11 as long as your PC meets the hard floor requirements.

You're very welcome.
I also advise against trying to enable secure boot unless you installed Windows in EFI mode.
You can refer to this discussion for the reason why...

You need to know EVERYTHING that your system lacks for Windows 11, not just what the MS tool tells you.
Here is a link to a third-party tool that will check all the currently known requirements for Windows 11 and tell you what fails on your PC: https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/releases
Do NOT try to download this using MS Edge as it flags it as malware -- which it is NOT -- use a different Browser instead.
