just ran a test on my laptop and found incompatible just because I have gen 7 processor, everything else are meeting the requirement...

While it is true that 7th gen CPUs will not be supported for Windows 11, you can still force an upgrade with an ISO, and despite what Microsoft is saying about unsupported PCs will not get updates, that one has been debunked because there are plenty of reports that Microsoft is still providing updates to unsupported PCs icon_idea.gif

The reason why they are 'unsupported' is because of Microsoft's DCH driver requirements needed for stability and performance icon_idea.gif

it has nothing to do with age. microsoft think it's less stable and more prone to security issue. besides that, it's been a while M$ force everyone to buy new hardware  yawn.gif . i think the last was win98 > winXP era.

Devices that do not meet the minimum system requirements had 52% more kernel mode crashes. Devices that do meet the minimum system requirements had a 99.8% crash free experience.

Technically you don't even need new hardware, all you need is the installation media and force an upgrade tongue.gif

In typical Microsoft fashion, their 'requirements' are never enforced at all (remember Windows 10 upgrade 'deadline' a few years back?) icon_idea.gif
