according to Microsoft information the Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700T CPU @ 2.90GHz is not compatible with windows 11. according to the company, developers may request the inclusion of the hardware on the list in a future update. Intel will require this?

You have to ask Microsoft to fix this.  They decide what to support.

Seriously? Intel can't 'require' anything. They can certainly ask (and actually have), but they can't 'require' - and neither can you.

Microsoft - not Intel - makes all of the decisions regarding what they will and will not support. Microsoft established their cut line based upon the availability of certain security features in the processors. As much as I hate to say it (since I too have quite a few older machines), I have to agree with their cut line - and you should too if you care at all about security.

Off my soapbox now,
