Windows 11 Compatibility

Hello all,

I have a Dell Precision 7720 with the i7-7920HQ processor. It does Have vPro features, TPM 2.0, and all the other basic system requirements, but it will not pass on the compatibility checks. I just upgraded the motherboard to the i7-7920HQ from the i7-7700HQ processor to be able to meet or exceed the requirements. On the processor compatibility list, the i7-7820HQ is supported. And on the system compatibility list the Dell Precision 5520 is supported. That is just the same line in a smaller chassis, 14-15" versus my 17.3".

I should be more than okay for installation. How do I proceed?

David

What is the issue in the PC Health Check app?
Does it shows like your CPU is not compatible or it will show you are ready for upgrade?

Yes it does. However, the processor is the next faster one in the same line. i7-7820HQ is the next one below the i7-7920HQ. I then checked further and in the compatible systems, the Same line just smaller version model Precision Series 5520 (Mine is the higher end 7720) so it does not make sense at all.

Microsoft changes requirements for Windows 11 and this new requirement several processors are not supported.
Microsoft shared the following blog explaining the reason:

However, you may open start and search for feedback and open the Feedback Hub app and file a suggestion asking your device to be supported.
