Did you read the information in the yellow bar? Microsoft won't let you on the Dev or Beta Channel because your computer does not meet the hardware requirements for Windows 11. You will have to get your own ISO files from uupdump.net and use workarounds to upgrade on unsupported hardware.

Yes I already used a workaround to successfully upgrade on my unsupported hardware. As far as I know you cannot get a whole ISO file from UUPDump. Do you know where I can get one so then I can use a workaround on that ISO file please?

I appear to have resolved my problem by downloading and running this script...

GitHub - abbodi1406/offlineinsiderenroll: OfflineInsiderEnroll - A script to enable access to the Windows Insider Program on machines not signed in with Microsoft Account

My Insider Channel now shows that I'm on the Dev channel and Windows Update is currently downloading a new Dev build to install now.

I saw the same on my IP Dev machine that now has Win11 even though it's basically unsupported. I recall some time back, maybe when it was Technical Preview, that some 'test' versions would no longer be available after a new OS was released to RTM.
