    Based on the screenshot you just shared, your system is not supported.
    The link you posted is the list of supported processors for the Windows 10 and NOT Windows 11, you may take a look at list of supported Intel processors for Windows 11 on:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors
    Unfortunately, your CPU is not supported.

    Windows 11 can be installed on most computers in a supported or unsupported fashion.

    The parameters for the computer in the opening thread did not meet the Windows upgrade parameters.

    Unsupported installations can be performed by bypassing the upgrade parameters or by performing a clean install.

    Before performing either method it's best to make free backup images.

    Then if you're having unexpected problems or not happy with Windows 11 you can restore an image and be back where you had started.

    For free and pay backup images these are some options:

    (Acronis, Aoemi, EaseUS, Macrium, Paragon, etc.)
