My pc meets all the requirements for upgrading to windows 11, except the processor. My processor model is Intel Core i7 7700HQ 2.8GHz and I am using windows 10 21H2.
Based on the following link, the model of my CPU has been listed but still PC-Health says "The processor isn't currently supported for Windows 11".

Would you please tell me what should I do to upgrade my windows?

Best,

    This is the Windows 11 list of Intel supported CPU:

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

    For unsupported processors these are options:

    a) backup files > clean install Windows 11

    b) upgrade modifying registry or files
