Can't Upgrade But I meet Criteria

Occasional Visitor

I meet all of the criteria to upgrade to Windows 11 from Windows 10. My processor is listed as supported. But, I when I do a PC Health Check it gives me this message:

The Processor isn't currently supported for Windows 11

Processor: Intel Core i7-6700K CPU at 4.00 GHz

The remainder is all ok.

My system is:

Dell XPS 8900

Processor: Intel Core i7-6700K CPU at 4.00 GHz 4.01GHz

Ram: 16.0 GB

64 Bit

Windows 10 Pro

Version: 21H2

Build: 19044.1348

What can I do? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, i7-6700K processor is not compatible for Windows 11, according to Microsoft.

Please check with official Windows 11 list of supported processors:
