If anyone knows a work around to get onto the Dev channel, post it please.
One possibility is to run W11 as a virtual machine. It doesn't seem to matter whether the host system meet W11 requirements as long as the guest system does. I'm writing this on a W11 VM hosted on a w10 system that doesn't meet the upgrade requirements. (no tpm chip). The system I'm running W11 on is the first system listed under my computers.

There is a registry edit workaround to get into DEV Channel on Winaero page. You can follow the registry edit process there or just download the REG file to do it faster. Just Google up "how-to-enable-windows-11-dev-channel-on-unsupported-device" and you will find it. I am not 100% sure it works but I am assuming that you are playing around with a dummy OS and not your day to day main OS.

I missed the replies to my question. Thanks to all for the suggestions.
I initially got it to work vi a script and then it appears Microsoft relaxed their policy and I got in through normal measures.

Upgrading from Ryzen 7 3700X to Ryzen 9 3900X gave me a bit of a headache with fTPM.
I cleared the CMOS and tried clearing up existing TPM keys but the fTPM is not working even after enabling it in the BIOS. As a last resort, I flashed the BIOS which probably put everything back to factory default and I was able to make the fTPM work after that.
