Hi:

 

You can upgrade your notebook to W11, but you will have to use one of the W11 hardware check bypass methods to upgrade to W11.

 

I found this method to be the easiest way to do an in-place upgrade from W10>W11...

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.

Here's how you can enable Secure Boot:
Secure Boot helps protect the system from malware and is available on all modern computers. If you are facing a 'This PC can't run Windows 11' error, then you can follow these steps to enable Secure Boot:

Step 1: To enable Secure Boot on your computer, you need to press 'Windows + R' to open the Run window and type and enter 'msinfo32'.

Step 2: Now, look for a 'Secure Boot State' once the window is open. If it is not turned on, then you need to enable Secure Boot like TPM from the BIOS menu.

Step 3: Go to the BIOS menu and then search for the Boot tab. Go to the Advanced mode and look for the Secure Boot option and check if it is enabled.

Step 4: If it is not enabled, do it and save and then exit. Restart your system.

Step 5: To check for compatibility, open the PC Health Check tool and check if it passes the test or not. If it is still not enabled, check your computer specifications.
