What is the exact model number of your system and what is the file you cannot get access to?

1. Cool.

2. That would be impossible.

3.  But your computer needs to pass Windows-11 Readiness Test first. There is a list of Compatible computers here somewhere. If it's more than 4 years old, either the TPM-2.0 requirement or main-processor will likely fail the test.

Intel did not make their CPU's fully Windows 11 compliant until 13th gen intel processors.

On 13th gen processors and above there is additional cache (specifically for the win 11 operating system) that allows the efficiency cores and threads to be fully optimized and articulate instruction the way the operating system organizes its file instruction system. Also take note after 11th gen processors, intel improved the boost clocking for generation 3 boost.

Microsoft in a push for people BETA test windows 11 and improve the product, took processors starting with 8th generation intel processors that used a mix match of efficiency core with 2nd gen boost clocking were allowed to be beta tested. While 6th and 7th gen processors were the first to utilize efficiency core and thread architecture, these processors did not have second generation boost clocking which prohibited 6th and 7th gen processors from testing.

I myself own a dell vostro with 10th gen  i7 10700 processor and I beta tested windows 11 for 12 days and hated it so much that I reverted back to windows 10 pro.

I do not recommend anyone with older processors from 12th gen and below to use windows 11. It can cause issues with driver support, some games may not launch due to the lack in support, and some programs may not launch at all because it was designed for the older core architecture.

Stick to windows 10 22H2.

Here is the list of generational processors according to Toms Hardware.
