HP ENVY 700-060ea Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi.   I have a HP ENVY 700-060EA Desktop computer.  I am on windows 10 at the moment and as that will stop being supported in 2025 I thought it would be best to update to windows 11 but when I try it says my computer is not compatable which I am suprised at as it is an i7 with 16 Ram etc, is there any way it can be updated to windows 11 as it seems a shame to get rid of the computer because of this ?  Any ideas

Thanks 

Rowland

The reason for the "it says my computer is not compatable " is the processor is too old and there is no TPM.

However there are ways to bypass the requirements to install Windows 11.  See here for some insight on the matter.

There will be others and you can search this forum since many users are asking the same question as yourself.

Thanks for your reply.  It looks like even if I download Windows 11 going through that proccess,  as my computer is (they think )  to old it wont get all the security update for it anyway, so it looks like I will have to buy a new computer in 2025.

But again thanks for your reply.

Glad to help.  I'm sure others can benefit from your inquiry.

BTW: what you decided is probably the outcome for many and is what the tech industry was wanting to happen, anyway.

Hi, @X2ROW 

 

I have upgraded 12 different HP and Dell notebook and desktop PC's to W11 that did not meet the hardware requirement and every single one of them gets all of the updates Microsoft has released for W11.

 

That includes all of the security updates and cumulative updates.  Sometimes I even get driver updates.

 

I check them against a PC I have that fully meets the W11 hardware requirements.

 

This is the easiest way I have found to do an in-place upgrade to W11...

 

To upgrade to W11, read and follow the instructions at the link below.

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.

I was hoping @Paul_Tikkanen would see this posting and comment.  He is the best HP Forum person for knowledge on this subject.
