Cannot upgrade Windows 10 on Dell Optiplex 9010 to Windows 11 due to an unsupported processor (Intel Core i5-3570 CPU) and lack of a TPM 2.0 chip.

This PC doesn't currently meet Windows 11 system requirements




The issue was resolved by making a small registry change in order to bypass CPU and TPM requirements:

  • Open Registry Editor (regedit.exe)
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup
  • Create a new DWORD type entry:
    • Name:  allowupgradeswithunsupportedtpmorcpu
    • Value: 1


On this particular PC, I also had to enable TPM v1.2 in the system BIOS
