Windows 11 and Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Prozessor (6 MB Cache up to 3,80 GHz)

Hello,

runnig a programe from Windows which checks the integrity of using Windows 11 with Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Prozessor (6 MB Cache up to 3,80 GHz) I have got the hint, that Windows 11 does not support this processor.

 

Simply still using Windows 10 will be one possibility - or will there be an update or e. g. patch from intel?

 

Thanks

There is no update.   Microsoft has decided to support only 8th gen and later processors for Windows 11 (with few exceptions). 

Microsoft's rule, Microsoft's list:

Complain to Microsoft.
