You need to update your TPM to 2.0 and enable a safe boot in the BIOS to be able to update to Windows 11.

Can someone help me, how to do that?

Go to BIOS setting(at boot) and turn the TPM on and secure boot. You need to find out what key to press at boot for your motherboard. Go to Alienware web site and find out

See if you can change the secure boot to higher level. You got standard right now

@Dupek69  there is just the option "custom"

Try to set to "custom". If your tpm is 1.2 it my not work if you are not in dev section

I suspect there is something wrong with the Windows Updates. The PC Health Checkup is removed and its says "Coming Soon". Looks like we have to wait for the updates from Microsoft. I tried this 3rd party tool which gives detailed report.
