Why does my "fairly" new computer NOT meet Windows 11 necessary specs?

Hi:

 

Your PC's i7-7700 processor does not meet the specs to run W11.

 

It needs to be an Intel 8th gen core or newer processor.

 

I have a Dell Optiplex 7050 MT business desktop with the same processor, and it runs W11 just fine.

 

You need to use one of the W11 hardware check bypass methods if you want to upgrade to W11.

 

If found this method to be the easiest way to do that, and I have upgraded 11 different unsupported HP and Dell notebook and desktop PCs to W11, and they all work fine on it.

Before 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.
