TPM2.0 Rampage 4 Black Edition

Level 7

Hello ASUS ROG community,

I am currently facing an issue with enabling TPM2.0 on my Asus Rampage 4 Black Edition (R4BE) motherboard running Windows 11. Your expertise would be highly valued in resolving this.

System Configuration:

OS: Windows 11

Motherboard: Asus Rampage 4 Black Edition

TPM Module: SuperMicro-9665V TPM2.0 (TCG 2.0) installed in the 20-pin socket of the motherboard.

BIOS Settings: "Security Device Support" has been enabled, "TPM State" is enabled.

The Issue:

I have followed the necessary steps to enable TPM2.0 support in the BIOS. However, I've encountered the following greyed-out options in the "Advanced/Trusted Computing" section:

TPM Enabled Status: Disabled

TPM Active Status: Deactivated

TPM Owner Status: Unowned

Attempted Solutions:

  1. Restarted the computer after enabling TPM state to update the TPM settings, but still faced the greyed-out options.

  2. Checked if "Pending operation" was set to "None," which it was.

Possible Explanations:

After the restart, the BIOS displayed a message stating, "O.S. will not show Security Device. TCG EFI protocol and INT1A interface will not be available." This leads me to suspect two potential issues:

  1. The Asus Rampage 4 Black Edition motherboard may not be compatible with TPM2.0.

  2. The SuperMicro TPM module I installed might not be compatible with the motherboard.

Seeking Advice:

I would greatly appreciate any advice or insights from the community regarding why these options are greyed out and any possible solutions to enable TPM2.0 support on my R4BE motherboard.

Thank you all for your time and valuable input.

Best regards,
