Hi:

 

Your PC does not meet the minimum specifications to officially run W11.

 

It does not have a supported processor and it does not have a TPM 2.0 security device.

 

If you want to force the upgrade to W11, it is pretty easy to do so...

 

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...

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. 

 

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