Is it possible to update/upgrade the CPU in my HP Notebook (17-bs027cy). I'm wanting to update to Windows 11 but the CPU isn't compatible. Any recommendations?

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi:

 

In order to upgrade the processor, you would have to replace the motherboard with one that supports the Intel 8th gen core processors.  Chapter 3 of the service manual has the list of supported motherboards.

When all is said and done, that would probably cost you more than buying a PC that is W11 capable.

 

A PC not meeting all of the W11 hardware requirements does not necessarily mean you can't install W11 on your PC, but you would have to perform a clean install and reinstall all of your programs and files.

 

If you want to see if W11 works on your PC, you can make a bootable W11 USB installer from the link below.

See this article.  3rd headline from the bottom.

If for some reason, W11 does not work correctly on your PC, you can reinstall W10.

 

I currently have W11 clean installed on two PC's that I have, that do not meet the requirements for the W11 upgrade and they both work fine on W11 so far.

 

I used the free Macrium Reflect software to make system images of the W10 installation before I installed W11.

 

You may want to do the same. 

 

Make a system image using Macrium reflect, and if W11 doesn't work right, you can easily go back to your current W10 installation.

 

You save the image on a portable hard drive and the software will have you make a bootable USB flash drive or DVD you boot from to access the system image stored on the portable hard drive.

You want the file listed on the left side of the webpage under the Backup at Home section.

 

Yesterday was Microsoft's 'Patch Tuesday,' and I had heard about the possibility that Microsoft would not offer the monthly security updates to PC's that did not meet the W11 hardware requirements.

 

Both of my non-supported W11 PC's got the all of the security updates yesterday, so that is good news.
