With the announcement of Windows 11, there are minimum hardware requirements. One such requirement includes a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, which has surprised many users. This means that computers after 2015 will be able to install Windows 11, but older PCs and laptops will not. At the end of 2014, the TPM version 2.0 began to be introduced into motherboards and processors. In addition, on many motherboards and processors, it can be disabled by default in the BIOS.
Note: TPM is available as a chip embedded in motherboards and at the processor level. If you don’t have a TPM, you can buy one, but you need to make sure your motherboard has a TPM 2.0 connector.
Enabling TPM in BIOS of Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Dell, Asrock, HP, Lenovo, Intel and AMD
This tutorial is about enabling Trusted Platform Module (TPM) in BIOS of Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Asrock, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Intel and AMD processors. You should understand that the BIOS is different for everyone; even if the manufacturer is the same, the firmware and interface may differ.
For this reason, look for TPM, Trusted Platform Module, TPM Device, Security Chip, Platform Trust Technology, PTT (at Intel processor level), and TPM (at AMD processor level) in BIOS / UEFI.
1. Enabling TPM in BIOS Asus
- Go to Advanced > Trusted Computing.
- Go to ” Advanced “> ” TPM State “.
- Go to ” Advanced “> ” TPM Device Selection.”
- In the advanced parameters ” AMD fTPM configuration “> ” TPM Device Selection ” and set ” Firmware TPM “. At the AMD processor level.
- In the slightly lower BIOS firmware of ASUS B450, the parameter will be ” PCH-FW Configuration “> ” TPM Device Selection “.
2. Enabling TPM in BIOS Gigabyte
- Go to ” Settings “> ” AMD CPU fTPM “
- Go to ” Peripherals” > ” Trusted Computing”.
3. Enable TPM in MSI BIOS
- Go to ” Setting “> ” Security “> ” Trusted Computing “> ” Security Device Support MSI BIOS “.
- In addition, it can be Platform Trust Technology, PTT, fTPM (at the Intel and AMD CPU level).
4. Enabling TPM in BIOS Asrock
- Go to ” Advanced “> ” Trusted Computing “.
- Go to ” Advanced “> ” CPU Configuration “> ” AMD fTPM switch “.
- Maybe Platform Trust Technology from Intel PTT.
- Go to ” Security “> ” Intel platform trust technology in BIOS Asrock “.
5. Enabling TPM in the BIOS of a DELL laptop
- Go to ” Security “> ” TPM Security ” on the right, check the box and click apply.
- Then set the value to ” Active “, apply and exit.
6. Enabling TPM in BIOS of HP, Lenovo laptop
- On a Lenovo laptop, go to Security > Security Chip.
- On an HP laptop, go to ” Security “> ” TPM Device “, and it should be set to ” Available “, and the TPM State checkbox should be checked.
- If BIOS is Aptio, then go to ” Advanced “> ” TPM Support “.
- On HP with BIOS Aptio, go to “Advanced”> ” Trusted Computing “> “Security Device Support”.
