    I recall MS publishing the workarounds for enthusiasts to use.

    here is one example from MS
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...b-2ce77ac7c70e
    you can create the following registry key values and bypass the check for TPM 2.0 (at least TPM 1.2 is required) and the CPU family and model.

    Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup

    Name: AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Value: 1
    I vaguely remember they published some other stuff about it with the individual bypass reg entries, can't recall where it is.

    Also in the same article you posted:
    Create an image install

    Use DISM or 3rd party tools to directly apply an existing Windows 11 image to the disk.
    Which is what I was referring to in Post #10. I guess Microsoft is as disreputable as our forum!

    Really? Well, I shouldn't be surprised. There are always some sharp minds that will find ways to beat the system.
    I've been around Windows forums for over 30 years. I know reputable forums will not condone such endeavour. So, I won't ask.
    If I decide to give it a go, I'll go look for the "work arounds" myself.
    Thank you for the heads up.
    While recommending against it, even Microsoft themselves tell you how to do it.

    Microsoft recommends against installing Windows 11 on a device that does not meet the Windows 11 minimum system requirements. If you choose to install Windows 11 on a device that does not meet these requirements, and you acknowledge and understand the risks, you can create the following registry key values and bypass the check for TPM 2.0 (at least TPM 1.2 is required) and the CPU family and model....

    As you have a desktop you may be able to change your Celeron CPU to something better at low cost.

    The Celeron J3455 uses a BGA1296 socket.

    None of the CPUs that would fit are supported for Windows 11, in fact @davidhk's J3455 seems to be one of the more powerful ones anyway.
