Also, try this method at your own risk and you won’t be getting any cumulative updates in your system.
How to Force Windows 11 Upgrade or Install on Unsupported PC
You might have heard about the Universal MediaCreationTool wrapper. It’s a tool using which one can make ISO files of any Windows. The developers have added the support of the latest Windows 11 and the script has been added as an integrated part of it.
Method 1: Windows 11 Force Install Script
While the ‘MediaCreationTool.bat‘ script is used to build Windows ISOs, it also contains a script called ‘Skip TPM Check on Dynamic Update.cmd,’ that configures the devices to bypass compatible hardware requirements.
Whenever you execute or run the Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update.cmd script, it performs a variety of actions like- Under the HKEY LOCAL MACHINESYSTEMSetupMoSetup Registry key, create the ‘AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU’ value and set it to 1 and When the vdsldr.exe executable is run during Windows 11 setup, it registers a WMI event subscription titled ‘Skip TPM Check on Dynamic Update,’ which deletes the ‘C:$WINDOWS.BTappraiserres.dll’ file.
When upgrading a Windows 11 on an unsupported PC before using this script, it showed the installer couldn’t see the secure boot feature, a TPM 2.0 processor, or the system disc was too tiny. We were able to install the latest Windows 11 build without issue after running this script.
Also, it is worth mentioning that you might not get any cumulative or security updates. Also, minor lags and frame drops will be normal as you are installing Windows 11 in an unofficial way. You will be more prone to virus attacks and threats. So we recommend you either not do this on your PC or try it at your own risk only.
Method 2: Replace Windows 10 Installer to Force Windows 11 Install

With this bypass method, you can easily upgrade to Windows 11 on a PC even with an unsupported processor and without a TPM chip. In this trick, Windows 10 installer is used as a placeholder for Windows 11 installer.
