Hi, I don't know why I don't meet the minimum requirements to install Windows 11.
I have a 225GB SSD, a core i7-7700K with TPM 2.0 activated and UEFI Boot Activated. I'm running Windows 10 Pro version 20H2 Build 19042.1237.
I also have 16GB of RAM.
All my hardware meet the recommended requirements to run Win11. Why the insider program don't let me install it?

    Unfortunately, this processor is not compatible for Windows 11, according to Microsoft: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors

    Hi there,

    You need a minimum 8th generation processor for Windows 11. It seems your processor is not listed in the supported processor.

    You can check the Processor name in the Below link
