I opt in to windows insider program and got my hp laptop (processor i7-7500u) upgraded to windows 11 dev. Now I see this processor machines are not eligible for windows 11. So net-net I'm stuck to windows 11 dev & now there is no next updates available and current build is getting expired on 15th September. Did anyone else faces similar issue ? what you did?

-Anyway to revert to windows 10 ?
-Anyway to keep windows 11 and overcome the processor limitation

Please help.

    Hi @Mohit Varshney

    I would try to go back to Windows 10 as I don't see any good in trying to overcome the processor limitation.

    1) If you have gone past 10 days this option may not apply.

    Go to:

    Start menu > Settings > Windows Update > Advanced options > Recovery > Previous version of Windows.

    2) Easiest way is to download the Windows 10 installer for media tool and install on a USB key (need 8+ GB of space):
