I have a second computer with an Intel Core I5 7400 and it is on MS combatibility
list for Windows 11. When checking Windows update it says that the CPU does not meet the requirements for Windows 11, everything else is fine.
Why is that? Anybody knows?

I'm up way past my bedtime, but I don't see it on this list...

Welcome to Eleven Forum

I'm sorry but no, your 7th generation i5-7400 is not on Microsoft's published compatibility list for Windows 11. Who told you it was?



8th gen or later are supported, but the only 7th gen processors that MS recently added to the list are:

Intel®Core™i7-7800X
Intel®Core™i7-7820HQ[1]
Intel®Core™i7-7820X
Intel®Core™i9-7900X
Intel®Core™i9-7920X
Intel®Core™i9-7940X
Intel®Core™i9-7960X
Intel®Core™i9-7980XE
[1] Only select devices that shipped with modern drivers based on Declarative, Componentized, Hardware Support Apps (DCH)design principles.

Yes, the Windows 10 list has a lot more processors on it. However, 11 will work on your processor, but not being supported you do so entirely at your own risk (and with no support from MS should things go badly). There are known workarounds to make it install, some of them from Microsoft themselves.

Microsoft said:
Warning:
  • Microsoft recommends against installing Windows 11 on a device that does not meet the Windows 11 minimum system requirements. If you choose to install Windows 11 on a device that does not meet these requirements, and you acknowledge and understand the risks, you can create the following registry key values and bypass the check for TPM 2.0 (at least TPM 1.2 is required) and the CPU family and model....

I doubt it. MS have had plenty of time (and telemetry) to decide on whether to add any 7th gen processors. They did add a few of the latest ones, but that is probably all they will support.

If you already have 11 on another machine, you'll know that apart from the redesign of the Start menu, Taskbar and Settings app there's little that has changed. I'd wait to see what the November Update, Windows 10 version 21H2 brings, expected to be released some time soon.


The PC's digital licence is tied to the Hardware ID of the PC and is stored on Microsoft's activation servers. If you do change the cpu you may (or may not) change the hardware ID of the PC enough to count as a significant change and loose the activation. If so, and you are running Pro then the Activation Troubleshooter may restore activation, but only if you have linked the digital licence to your Microsoft account before changing the hardware.

Hi,
Only changing the mother board will effect activation if it's not a retail copy of 7-8-8.1-10 license
Only oem or system builder keys are tied to the mother board.

Cpu is nothing to upgrade it's like upgrading memory only takes money.
