    Hi, thanks for coming into the forums. I'm also a user like you and I'll be more than happy to help you to the best of my knowledge.

    Yes, i7-7700HQ is not on the list of supported processors as it didn't meet the design principles around security, reliability, and the minimum system requirements for Windows 11 and may cause issues like BSOD, slow, and freezing PC.
