Windows 11 Upgrade Guide
I would like to upgrade my pc intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz for one that will except windows 11 but the one I have will not upgrade. so what chipset would be better for me to upgrade with
The 7th gen Intel CPUs (i5-7400) run on Intel 200 series chipsets. You need a minimum 300 series chipset but the 7th gen CPU you have will not run on a 300 chipset.
You need to upgrade the CPU to at least a 8th gen product and look at a 300 chipset having integrated PTT or a TPM 2.0 module.
HP does not support swapping in a newer motherboard using their products. So you have to upgrade the MB and CPU using retail parts. W10 is supported until 2025.
I would stay on W10. Then buy a new PC down the road.
I have seen where you can install W11 clean on unsupported hardware but this may break future Microsoft updates to your PC; this is not good.
