P0S80EA#ABU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I really need some help with this

I have this machine and I tried to upgrade to win 11 Microsoft tool returned  This PC doesn't meet all the system requirements for windows 11 Get the details and see if there are things you can do in the PC Health Check app.

What is HP doing to fix this situation from my point of view HP should have their teeth into Microsoft 

Does this Laptop have TPM, is it enabled it seems to be hirer than windows 11 requirements but Microsoft is saying other wise

If not, can the bios be upgraded, can I fit a processor that will work

Your machine does have TPM but process is only Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ which does not meet requirements for Windows 11 as shown

 

         https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-inte...

 

If you wish, you can perform

 

          Installing Windows 11 on devices that don't meet minimum system requirements

I don't know why MS came up with this policy. I know millions and millions of machines out there won't meet MS requirements and we have to perform back door stuffs.

 

Anyway, we still have nearly 4 years to run Windows 10 (14 Oct 2025), we will cache up later.

Hi, @james241 

 

If you want to try out W11 on your PC, it is relatively easy to do...

 

I would 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.

 

Macrium Software | Reflect Free Edition

 

First make this registry change...

 

https://www.hellpc.net/how-to-bypass-tpm-and-cpu-requirements-windows-11-upgrade-unsupported-pc/

 

Then download the Windows 11 ISO file (3rd option), not the W11 installation assistant.

 

Download Windows 11 (microsoft.com)

 

Then open the file with Windows explorer, and click on the setup application.

 

To do that, right click on the ISO file and select 'Open With' and select Windows Explorer.

 

See the screenshot...this is what you will see when you open the file with Windows Explorer.

After you double click to run the setup application, you will get this window, and you can now upgrade to W11.

You just have to accept the agreement that comes up during the upgrade process about your PC not meeting the requirements, etc., etc..

 

My unsupported W11 PC's got all of the W11 updates. 

 

I have upgraded 5 of them to W11 and they seem to run a little better on W11 than they did on W10.

 

However, I don't know how long they will continue to get all of the updates, or what will happen when the new build of W11 comes out next year in October.
