I have a laptop pc with a processor that is listed as acceptable for Windows 11. 

List:[Intel® Core™ i7-7500U].Mine: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7500U CPU @ 2.70GHz 2.90 GHz

 

I was about to just skip it- I downloaded the ISO and fixed the registry. But when it was about to install, I got the warning that I wouldn't be eligible for support or updates. Well, I'm not concerned about MS support, I've never gotten any. But I do like to keep my computer updated.

 

Any suggestions?

@StephenWolf  Hi

As far as I know, only the 8th generation is compatible with Windows11:

Intel Core i7-8086K
Intel Core i7-8557U
Intel Core i7-8559U
Intel Core i7-8569U
Intel Core i7-8700
Intel Core i7-8700B
Intel Core i7-8700K
Intel Core i7-8700T
Intel Core i7-8750H
Intel Core i7-8850H

Or newer Intel processors.

The current Windows10 updates work very well I stay with it until 2025,

Best regards
