I am currently unable to upgrade an acer laptop 2017 model because the processor is not supported. Is there any way I can get around this and upgrade anyway? I read there was a way to get around the TPM requirement but I have not heard of a way to get around the processor requirement and if it would be a stable system if you could.
That "processor requirement" is essentially support for TPM, nothing else. Your CPU is? Also BIOS must support TPM too.

Basically Microsoft wanted to get rid of older trash and TPM requirement was easiest way to do it. So that Windows 11 computers have at least some quality and stupid people do not think Win 11 is crap because it runs poorly on cheapest possible machine.
