Microsoft has some strict hardware requirements that your PC must meet to install Windows 11, including TPM 2.0 support. This means that not only older computers, but virtual machines will refuse to upgrade from Windows 10, giving you a message that “this PC doesn’t currently meet Windows 11 system requirements.” 

In fact, if you already have installed Windows 11 in a virtual machine, you may not be able to update to the latest build because Windows Update will tell you that your system doesn’t meet requirements. But even if your host computer supports TPM, your VM software may not.
