    The Core i7-7700HQ doesn't appear on the list.
    Windows 11 supports the i7-7820HQ and up.

    Unfortunately, i7 7700HQ processor is not compatible for Windows 11, according to Microsoft.

    Please check with official Windows 11 list of supported processors:

    You can drop a feedback to Microsoft about this, using Feedback hub app.

    Thank you for your question and reaching out.

    Many users have stated this and if you have checked up on all the requirements like processor too then you can use the update assistance tool to get the Windows 11. Make sure you have 8th gen processors.

    Windows 11 supported Intel processors

    Additionally , you can still install Windows 11 on devices that don't meet minimum system requirements , but that method is not recommended though .

    Below is Microsoft reference article.

    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:

    Good day,

    My laptop is telling me that it is not compatible with Windows 11 requirements. Only one component, that is the processor. My processor is Intel Core TM i5-6200 CPU @ 2.30GHz.

    On the list of processors supported by Windows 11, the list does mention this processor as one of many that support Windows 11.

    What causes this?

    Hi MandlaQhineba-6542

    This is the list of Windows 11 Intel supported CPU.

    The i5-6200 was not displayed on the list last updated 01/17/2022.

    End users can upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 in either a supported or unsupported fashion.
