Why is my processor (Intel core i7-7500U) not elegible for windows 11. It exceeds published minimum requirements. Its in a Dell Inspiron 5567 which meets all requirements except processor.
Unfortunately, i7-7500U processor is not compatible for Windows 11, according to Microsoft.
Please check with official Windows 11 list of supported processors: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors
You can drop a feedback to Microsoft about this, using Feedback hub app.
Only 8th generation processors are supported for Windows 11. This is been specified by the PC manufacturers for improved security and performance. It seems 7500U is not on the list.
Windows 11 supported Intel processors

I have two, two year old high end machines, with Intel Core processors and neither is capable of running this new crap. At only two years old, it is a travesty that they are obsolete.
You pigs at Microsoft should get your heads out of your behinds and make software that will work on reasonably current equipment. I am NOT spending a total of over $1,800 to replace them.
You should be ashamed of yourselves.
