    Helllo,

    One of the big focus into Windows 11 is security and CPU architectures that support encryption and low level code execution. This is the main reason why some powerful processors are not included in the compatibility list.

    However, Microsoft has published a method to install Windows 11 in those computers, even though would not be recommended or up to the standards expected into security:
