Want to upgrade processor so it is compatible with windows 11. Cannot find a source which will tell me 1) the ID of the motherboard and 2) the compatible processors. Please help. Thank you in advance

Hi:

 

You cannot do anything to your notebook to make it meet Microsoft's W11 hardware requirements.

 

There are no motherboards that meet the W11 processor requirements that are supported.

 

See chapter 3 of your notebook's service manual for the list of motherboards offered in the model series.

I have notebooks much older than yours that run W11 just fine.

 

If you are interested in installing W11 on your PC as is, you can read this discussion for how I upgraded several HP and Dell notebook and desktop PC's that did not meet the W11 hardware requirements to W11 22H2.

 

You have to use the version of the Rufus utility that I zipped up and attached in the discussion (v3.18).

If the in-place upgrade fails, you should be able to clean install W11 using the bootable W11 installation flash drive you made with Rufus.
