3 Dell Desktops (Pre Windows 8, and Windows 8 to Window 10), 1 Lenovo laptop (Windows 10), 1 HP laptop (Windows 7 to Windows 10) were upgraded to Windows 10 from old versions of Windows.
None of them are compatible for Windows 11.
Please provide replacement guidance to replace parts on this systems to be Windows 11 compatible, e.g. boardboard specs (trusted chip architecture), CPU, Ram size, Hardware Size?
This article (unsure if it will work or even though it by-passes the warning - the hardware components are of concern) https://www.theverge.com/22715331/how-to-install-windows-11-unsupported-cpu-intel-amd-registry-regedit discusses changes to registry to by-pass the default Windows 11 compatible list.

The keyboards, mouse, CD players, USB ports, Audio/Video connectors are functional on existing hardware. Cost to replace all them, including my Installed Office suites works. Costly investment (again) in current era of reuse, saving planet resources, etc.

Any tested, guidance would be welcomed. Thank you in advance

  1. If the PC...motherboard/TPM/CPU...is not Win 11 compatible, you need a new system.
  2. Something that originally came with Win 7 or 8 is almost certainly not Win 11 capable.
  3. There is NO need to upgrade to Win 11 for a few years.
