I was checking to see if I could possibly upgrade my old dell e6400 to w11. I ran the pc health test to see if it can be done and the test results said I have to have secure boot, tpm 2.0 and the processor is not supported. Is there a processor that I can upgrade to that would be supported and support secure boot which my system information screen says is unsupported, or is it a BIOS function? I think there are tpm modules that I can upgrade with. I am continuing to do my own research on this subject.

Forget it, I checked on dell's website and it's a no go and I'll just use the laptop till windows 10 is no longer supported, which means I'll still get a lot of use out of it and then just replace it. Something to think about for people purchasing refurb's is the fact of which operating system can be put on it and how long it will be supported.
