Overwrite the install.wim in a Windows 10 bootabe USB with the Windows 11 install.wim and you will be able to bypass the TPM check. I have Windows 11 running great on a spare HDD attached to my work PC (i7-4770).

Or you can just use Rufus to create a USB install drive without any hardware checks.

I haven't run Windows on a HDD since, what, 2010'ish. You may want to consider an (external) SSD. Just for the quality-of-life improvement.

I can't imagine trying to do Windows Update on a 5400RPM HDD...
