    Hi @Ben Vogelzang ,

    Unfortunately the i7-6700 CPU processor is as of today not compatible for Windows 11, this is a 6th generation Intel processor which was released in 2015 and is likely not going to be supported, however you may always provide feedback and request your processor to be supported by using the Feedback Hub app:

    You'll find the Microsoft's official Windows 11 list of supported Intel processors over here:

    Hi ,

    Thank you for your question.

    Recently the integrity check application has been undergoing updates to further expand the number of devices compatible with windows 11. It is true that some of the processors considered old were not being recommended for using windows 11, however this has been changed every week after week, because the idea is to reach as many users as possible with windows 11.

    So, you shouldn't worry, as much as it doesn't seem to be "compatible" now, it will soon be, with the windows 11 integrity updates.

    Also, I recommend that you post your question on the windows 11 forum, because there you will be greeted by an engineer from the windows 11 team, who has more recent information to pass on to you, to do this just use the link below and select the top option called "Ask a question" and describe the entire problem, including images:
