Please let us know, how it is recommended to install Windows 11 after removing appraiserres.dll?

Moreover, please share correct way to install Windows 11 in any unsupported hardware by removing appraiserres.dll file.

With Regards

Windows 11 can be installed in any unsupported hardware by removing appraiserres.dll file.....

What is this file for?
This is the file that checks for Windows 11 compatibility (secure boot, TPM, CPU, etc.) when trying to upgrade from windows 10 to Windows 11. When deleted all compatibility checks are skipped. Example screenshots of how to do so in this post....
