    Hi @Muhd Hasyir K ,

    The Intel i7-6700HQ CPU is not listed here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors

    The Intel i7-6700HQ CPU is a 6th generation Intel CPU. Windows 11 requires at least a 8th generation CPU.
    Her you will find some more details: https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2021/08/27/update-on-windows-11-minimum-system-requirements-and-the-pc-health-check-app/

    Feel free to submit feedback via Feedback Hub app in Windows.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, i7-6700HQ processor is not compatible for Windows 11, according to Microsoft.

    Please check with official Windows 11 list of supported processors:

    https://learn.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.

    One common mistake is users are checking Windows 10 for CPU requirement which is the following:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-10-21h2-supported-intel-processors
    And your CPU is listed there.
    However, the list is for the Windows 10 and for the Windows 11 you have to check the following link:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors
    Unfortunately, your CPU is not listed and the result from the PC Health Check app is correct.
    Like it has been shared you may open start and search for feedback and open the Feedback Hub app and share your concern and if it already exist , then upvote it.

    Hello MuhdHasyirK

    The processor is not listed in the compatible processor list:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors

    The reason for this is usually that there is some security limitations in the architecture of the CPU as well if TPM 2.0 or Secure Boot are not supported features of the hardware.
