Confused on modifying standard Win 11 install to bypass TPM and CPU checks?

I really messed up. I did a scan with SuperAntiMalware like usual and it tagged a malware in my registry. It was a false positive due to the File Explorer registry change, but it blew my Windows 11 startup all the hell. It took a while to see if it was actual Malware, but then on boot up it ran the diagnostics and got me into Windows reset. Yeah, back to factory setup. Gue4ss it was okay since I had just made a backup disk and it only took a few hours to straighten things out. I hate backups, updates, upgrades and getting old.

Win-11/Pro/64
After reading this entire thread, I'm actually glad that I'm lazy, and always look for the easiest way of doing things.
Wanting a version of Windows 11/Pro/64 that I didn't have to fuss with, I found one on my favorite Software Download site.
So I downloaded it, burned it to a Flash Drive, using Rufus, and installed it to several of my (64 bit) PC's, with no muss, no fuss.
My only PC's that refused the install were the ones that only had 32 bit CPU's.
After the install, the fun started! It took a while of poking around and installing the Classic Shell, to finally get Windows 11 to look somewhat like an older and more familiar OS.
Here's one of my Windows 11 installations:

There are actually a couple of 'Tells' that this is really not Windows 7. But it's very user friendly anyway.
It's not my first pick of an everyday OS, but I could live with it, if I had to. It works! lol

:cool:

    Given to me as DEAD, and irreparable.
    I refurbished it, with a new SSD and max ram, and it's running Win-8.1 today.

Windows 11 Pro 22H2 64-bit (build 22621.1105)
I have replaced the start button with the Windows 7 familiar orb icon and also set Open Shell to Windows 7 start menu. I also replaced most system icons with those of Windows 8.1 and the network and sound icons on the taskbar with those of Windows 7. I have even installed 8gadgetpack and Windows Media Center and Winaero old calculator and classic games! The only way to realize it is not Windows 7 is by the extra icons on the taskbar that were not in Windows 7 (such as the search and Store icons) and the different appearance of date/time on the taskbar. Talk about Master of customization.
