HP ENVY 15-u011dx x360 Convertible PC (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I cannot download Windows 11 to my laptop as it indicates that my laptop does not have the minimum system requirements, such as a TPM, I have looked for trying to enable it and it really seems like it doesn't have one. What do I do?  I have a HP ENVY x360 TouchSmart  that I purchased since 2014 and it works great, slows down sometimes now, I believe because of the inability to install the new Windows. I cannot get help from HP because obviously my warranty has expired and I don't have the type of money to pay for computer repair services or such. My daughter has a Widows Surface Pro 4 and also cannot download Windows 11. Is that a trick from corporations to make us buy a new computer? I need some feedback and support, advice, anything. Please help.

Think carefully, before taking the risk, see the experiences of other users, see if it can be interesting, or if you can wait to have a new computer later, 100% compatible!
Windows 10 remains one of the best systems, and can be used for quite a while.


I have performed the installation with a compatible computer ..
And I can not take full advantage of the more or less interesting features, because you have to have a certain material
So far, so there is nothing extraordinary about this system
So if the computer is not compatible, you have little interest in using it ..
In some cases, we can have more problem than something else (performance etc), it is better to wait until most of the bugs are solved.
And even better to have a 100% compatible computer, in order to be able to take advantage of the available features
Now, if you want to give it a try, first plan to use specialized software, and make a ghost copy of your installation.


You will not be able to install a compatible processor
you would have to force install windows 11
there are several tutorials on the net, it's up to you

Hi, @Paola2022 


There is no one here that can tell you how well W11 will work on the notebooks you have.


There are all different situations/hardware configurations.  It may work fine, it may not. 


If you want to upgrade either of the PC's you mentioned to W11, you will 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 W11.




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.
