The upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 will be free, but it will remain denied many users because your PC does not meet the minimum requirements. So it is synonymous with the Intel Core i7-7700K in my primary desktop PC, although it still has sufficient performance, not supported by Windows 11. However, because I am convinced that it still works, I've never performed "forbidden upgrade" and will report at this point as it happened to me.
One thing in advance: criticizing Microsoft for the system requirements of Windows 11 is one thing. I do that even, I think that at least partially for pure arbitrariness to boost the sale of new devices. Nevertheless, I am aware: If problems arose on an officially unsupported device's operation, there is only one guilty, namely myself.
Windows 365: Private Customers and Streaming Excluded, Discount for Windows 10 Pro

For example, private customers are excluded and the use for server-like purposes can lead to sanctions. There is also discount for Windows 10 Pro users.
I started the self-experiment with the ISO file of Build 22000.194. This is officially an insider version, but what makes no difference, because there are only cumulative maintenance updates for Windows 11 anyway.
is updated is a Windows 10 Pro with all current updates at the stand of September 24, 2021.
After starting the setup, the, which we have already reported. She points out that I have to handle his own risk, which I have to confirm by clicking on "accept" to continue the setup.
After the note has been confirmed, the Windows 11 Setup proposes a complete upgrade while maintaining all programs and files. Of course, all important data I have previously secured so that I can now click on "Install" and wait, what happens.
Windows 11 on non-compatible PCs: Grace period for insider
© Provided by Dr. Windows Windows Insider Program Windows Insiders who test Windows 11 on a PC that does not meet the minimum requirements have received the message since this week that they need to return to Windows 10 ( Report ). But it seems like something like a grace period. Brandon Leblanc by Microsoft, who cares for the insider program, wrote on Wednesday evening on Twitter that affected insider no longer receive new builds, but continues to be supplied with cumulative updates.
You may already suspect it: The rest of the story is little spectacular. The upgrade is running through, the PC is restarted several times, and finally I am on the desktop of Windows 11.
a first short check shows: All data is still there, all installed programs were also taken over, and as far as I have that after three Days and various tests can judge, the programs are all still running.
The start menu is empty or virgin, that is, it looks like a reinstallation, the links of Windows 10 were therefore not taken over (see). In addition, some file links seem to have been lost, when opening a JPG file, for example, I got to see the known dialog again, which asks which program of this file type should be opened. In sum but it seems to have been a smooth upgrade.
I have already discovered: I can already discover the final version of Windows 11 in Hyper-V no longer virtualize the final version of Windows 11, the message appears at the beginning of the setup that the hardware is not compatible, and that's (despite activated TPM in Hyper -V). Workaround is the use of older insider ISO (e.g., 22000.132), where this test is not yet included.

In addition, I have found that a rollback on Windows 10 is not possible, but this is completely normal for a manually performed inplace upgrade. The opportunity to return to Windows 10 will only give it if you perform the upgrade to Windows 11 via Windows Update.
The exciting part starts now. Microsoft has warned that Windows 11 does not receive any updates on unsupported hardware. It is generally assuming that this statement relates to future feature updates, but you still get maintenance and security updates. The updated app updates e.g. For clock, snipping tool or photos app, have not arrived so far, but this is no longer insider installation with me, I'm on the standard release path.
The coming weeks will show if I'm properly lying with my guess that Windows 11 can also be operated properly on non-compatible hardware. I will report.
