The Intel i3-6100T CPU in my PC is not compatible to the new Windows 11os upgrade and I want to know which is the best CPU socket 1151 upgrade I can do at a reasonable cost?

- TDP: 35 W
- Socket type: LGA 1151
- Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:ProcessorTDPIntegrated GraphicsIntel Core i7-6700T (Skylake) 2.8 GHz Quad Core35 WIntel HD Graphics (GT2)Intel Core i5-6400T (Skylake) 2.2 GHz Quad Core35 WIntel HD Graphics (GT2)Intel Core i3-6100T (Skylake) 3.2 GHz Dual Core35 WIntel HD Graphics 530Intel Pentium G4400T (Skylake) 2.9 GHz35 WIntel HD Graphics 510Intel Celeron G3900T (Skylake) 2.6 GHz35 WIntel HD Graphics 510
BIOS may support Intel Gen 7 CPU's but NOT Gen 8 which is required for Windows 11. You can keep Windows 10, Microsoft still supports Windows 10 few more years. I've got 8 laptops/notebooks and can only upgrade 4 to Windows 11.

This does not necessarily mean you can't install W11 on your PC, but you would have to perform a clean install and reinstall all of your programs and files.
If you want to see if W11 works on your PC, you can make a bootable W11 USB installer from the link below.
See this article. 3rd headline from the bottom.
If for some reason, W11 does not work correctly on your PC, you can reinstall W10.
I currently have W11 clean installed on two PC's that I have, that do not meet the requirements for the W11 upgrade and they both work fine on W11 so far.
I used the free Macrium Reflect software to make system images of the W10 installation before I installed W11.
You may want to do the same.
Make a system image using Macrium reflect, and if W11 doesn't work right, you can easily go back to your current W10 installation.
You save the image on a portable hard drive and the software will have you make a bootable USB flash drive or DVD you boot from to access the system image stored on the portable hard drive.
You want the file listed on the left side of the webpage under the Backup at Home section.

a bit of the same opinion as @banhien here
For the moment, it is not clear enough, the user is not always aware of the consequences
We can tell you, that despite everything we can install windows 11
Only, it is not without risk ..
Microsoft, warns users, but it's not very explicit
Windows 11 on devices that don't meet minimum system requirements
We risk having serious problems, probably updates, security problems, we do not really know what else
If the installation goes well for some, for others it can be complicated
Hp also might not provide any update:
Think carefully, before taking the risk, see the experiences of other users, see if it can be interesting, or if you can wait to have a new computer later, 100% compatible!
Windows 10 remains one of the best systems, and can be used for quite a while.
