Hello,

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.

Regards.

I understand its not on the list which is the reason for the post. Why is it not on the list? The processor exceeds the published minimum requirements published by Microsoft!

Hi there,

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.

Again, the Intel i7-7500U processor exceeds all of the Microsoft minimum processor criteria for Windows 11. There are seventh generation processors on the approved list. Why is this processor not on the approved list.

Ditto for my i7-6500U processor. It is not on the list either yet meets all required criteria for Windows 11. Why aren't these on the list? The legalities of a faulty or underperforming processor aside, I would like to see or have explained to me why these are not in favor of making the list?

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.
