When checking the compatibility of a computer with Windows 11, using a particular utility PC Health Check from Microsoft, a message may appear that This PC Can’t Run Windows 11 PC. In addition, the computer meets the minimum requirements of Windows 11.
How to Fix “This PC Can’t Run Windows 11 PC” Error
The problem lies with the TPM 2.0 chip on the motherboard and the disabled Secure Boot feature in the BIOS. Let’s look at how to fix when Windows 11 cannot run on your PC.
1. Checking and enabling TPM 2.0
Modern computers and laptops have this chip, but ancient ones may not. Therefore, it will be logical to start to check if a TPM 2.0 chip exists on a computer or laptop.
- Press Win + R and enter tpm.msc to open TPM management.
- Below you can see the TPM version of the chip, which must be at least 2.0.
If you see a window with no information that says ” Cannot find a compatible TPM “, then you need to enable TPM in the BIOS. This parameter can be called differently in BIOS, depending on the motherboard manufacturer: TPM, Trusted Platform Module, TPM Device, Security Chip, and fTPM.
- To enable TPM, go to BIOS (press DEL when turning on the PC).
- Click on Advanced below to open advanced options.
- Go to the ” Advanced ” tab.
- Select AMD fTPM configuration.
- Under TPM Device Selection, set Firmware TPM.
- Press F10 to save the parameters.
2. Secure Boot
In the BIOS, the secure boot option is located under the Boot tab and is called “Secure Boot“. Set to Enabled to enable. Sometimes, you need to clear the keys for the parameter to be available. In our case:
- Go to the ” Boot ” tab and select ” Secure Boot Menu “.
- You need to select the ” Key Management ” below to enable it.
- Click on ” Set Default Secure Boot Keys “.
- Next, the secure boot will be enabled; press F10 to save.
