I installed W 10 from  the disc to the pc. All the up dates have been added.  Windows Insider Program states pc will not support W11 and requires clean boot. My laptop a little more powerful has accepted W11 without any problems.

If I read correctly @Manhattan45, you want to say that Windows Insider program settings mention that your system won't support Windows 11, but a clean install has worked.

If that's true, you should provide a feedback to Microsoft using Feedback hub app.

I was speaking to Microsoft Support. The representative asked me what my TPM was. We spent about 45 minutes trying to find out if the Trusted Platform Module was 1.2 or 2.0 in the BIOS.


The pc message Compatible TPM cannot be found. Compatible Trusted Platform Module (TPM) cannot be found on this computer. Verify that this computer has 1.2 TPM or later and is turned on in the BIOS. I have a Gigabyte Motherboard and could not find a switch for the TPM. I contacted the company that build my pc. Resolution: open Device Manager uninstall Trusted Platform Module driver.


Hardware scan, the TPM will be detected as a security device and will use the Microsoft driver.

Additionally, the TPM will now be listed under Security Devices as Trusted Platform Module 1.2.

How ever this doesn't get to TPM 2.0. Is TPM 2.0 required for W11?
