Yes, but can you get updates. From what I understand if you force install win 11 like that then windows will not provide you with security updates. Try it and let us know.

According to Steve Gibson from the Security Now podcast, people on not-officially-supported platforms are getting updates, for now. Who knows if that will last.

Hello,

 

If you wipe a computer's internal drive and perform a clean install of Windows 11 to it using a USB flash drive or DVD, the operating system will install regardless of whether or not the processor is on the compatibility list.  That said, whether or not it will be able to download updates and for how long is entirely up to Microsoft.

 

Regards,

Windows 11 Compatibility P51 i7-7820HQ processor

2021-11-03, 10:28 AM

Hi

 

I have run the Microsoft Windows 11 PC Health Check to determine if my machine which is a P51 with a i7-7820HQ processor is capable of upgrading to Windows 11.

 

It is reporting that the processor i have is currently unsupported however when you look to the supported CPU list it is Intel®    Core™    i7-7820HQ[1] however this processor has the caveat of [1] Only select devices that shipped with modern drivers based on Declarative, Componentized, Hardware Support Apps (DCH) design principles.

 

Do we know if Lenovo plan to release suitable drivers to enable the laptop with this processor to run Windows 11? 

 

Regards Mark

Hello,

 

As stated earlier in this thread, neither the ThinkPad P51 or the ThinkPad P71 are supported platforms for Windows 11.

 

Microsoft will be providing support for Windows 10 until at least October 2025, so that is four years of updates and patches you will continue to receive from them for that operating system.

 

Regards,
