Windows 11 upgrade error

Good afternoon,

For the last couple of days I have been trying to upgrade from Windows 10 to windows 11 without success. To begin with I have tried with the Update Assistant. Around 82% completion a message pops out stating below:

"This PC can't be upgraded to this version of Windows.
Your PC has hardware that isn't ready for this version of Windows. Windows Update will automatically offer you this version of Windows once the issue has been resolved."

I have used Windows upgrade assistant since the upgrade was not provided through windows update service. Same applies when trying to update via mounting the ISO. After searching online I found out that a user solved this by enabling Windows Insider Program and setting it to beta channel so I did the same and indeed windows update downloaded the needed upgrade only to have the same results as above around 35% of the installation.

I have already run PC Health check and of course finds my system capable of running windows 11 (intel i9, 64GB RAM, Asus Z490 with secure boot and TPM 2.0 enabled).

What I'm interested in is to find out more info about the claimed hardware incompatibility. Is there a way to get more info over this issue?

Many thanks,
