Hi and welcome to the forum
There are members here that can instruct you on how to use 11 on a non-compliment device and they should pop in to help you out.
FWIW.. I would stick with 10 given 11 doesn't have enough new things to justify going though the hassle of installing it. And some of the features in 10 have been removed in 11.

It's about 5 - 6 generations too old for 11

hello,

If you have Windows 10 installed and you're happy with it, I'd say stay with Windows 10 until October 2025. Windows 11 no longer has some of the things we all value.

However, if you wish to install Windows 11 on your older hardware, simply clean install Windows 11 and it will work fine. Don't blame me, though, if you don't like what you get. :)

I've clean installed Windows 11 on an older Lenovo Ideapad Flex and it works fine, but is missing some of the things I don't want to do without.

Yeah…. that’s not a hard spec. I mean if you’re a fan of artificially planned obselecense.
I never stated that the OP couldn't run his PC with 11.. I simply pointed him to the thread where it's being discussed and I suggested he shouldn't

@shaocaholica And? Yes.. the chip is old and I never said it wouldn't work with 11. You simply have to go through a bit of finagling to make it work. I simply stated that I wouldn't go through the hassle but he can if he want's to and I showed him where the subject is discussed.

On my test computer, I installed W 11.

On my computer with more serious stuff, I stayed with W 10.

I installed W 11 on both of my computers.
Since I make my living with my computers, I do, in fact, use them for more serious stuff. :)
