Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Is it possible to upgrade the intel processor in a pavilion 23 f260xt  all in one so it will work with windows 11? It came with an intel i3-3220t cpu 2.80 GHZ. According to the list  at  microsoft this is one of the processors that will not work with their new operating system. Every other spec matches though. This is a great computer and I do not want to be forced to give it up.

Hi:

 

It would not be possible to make your PC's hardware to be fully W11 qualified.

 

You can install W11 by using one of the several W11 hardware check bypass methods on the internet.

 

I found this method to be the easiest way to do that.

Before you try upgrading to W11, I recommend that you make a system image of your current W10 installation prior to updating to W11, so you can easily reinstall W10 in the future.  I used the free Macrium Reflect software to do that, under the Backup at Home section. 

 

Along with the system image, make sure you create the bootable DVD or USB rescue drive you boot from to access the system image stored on your portable hard drive.
