This PC can’t run Windows

Copper Contributor

I am building a new computer from scratch and I’m getting an error when trying to install Windows 11. 

“This PC can’t run Windows.”


Motherboard: Asus Prime B450M-A II

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 4100


Hard drive: FIKWOT FS810 250GB SSD


Secure boot: Windows UEFI mode

AMD fTPM configuration: Enable Firmware TPM


I’ve tried updating the BIOS, but I’m still not sure why I can’t install Windows 11 with these parts?

Please check the Windows 11 system requirements from here:

@corwinddkm I’ve checked it many times and I am certain that it all meets requirements. 

Is there a part there that you see does not meet system requirements? 

Hello @SkylerMatson.

The CPU is compatible with Windows 11, but I can see a line stating "Enable Firmware TPM": read the document at to know how you can enable TPM 2.0 in your PC.


Hi, TPM 2.0 is enabled so this comment does not help.


According to ASUS's own website, it looks to me like the issue is your motherboard.  It has support for Windows 10 and Windows 7 out of the box according to their own specs:


I would reach out to ASUS support for a firmware update.


For comparison, here are specs for my own ASUS motherboard that runs Windows 11 with no issues:
