Shove it, Microsoft! No legitimate reason to require an Internet account to install an operating system.

I doubt TPM will be required once launched, typically only on laptops and business pc's use them.

Hi everyone,

The list of Windows 11 Supported Processors (AMD & Intel) according to Microsoft was added to the thread.

Final release of W11 will disabled this check.

Due it was on delevopment period secure must be first priority.


If you're Windows Insider member.
This section will be bypass checking.


Hi,

Final release will require the same requirements :

While we recommend that all PCs meet the full hardware requirements for Windows 11, we are allowing some limited exceptions as we apply these new restrictions. All Windows Insiders who have already been installing builds from the Dev Channel on their PCs up through June 24, 2021 will be allowed to continue installing Windows 11 Insider Preview builds even if their PC does not meet the minimum hardware requirements. Insiders with PCs already in the Dev Channel have been installing and giving feedback on builds with Windows 11 features since last year. Our way of saying thanks is to go ahead and give them the opportunity to see everything come together. However, this comes with some important tradeoffs we want to call attention to:

- Because these devices do not meet the new hardware requirements, there may be issues and bugs that impact the experience of Windows 11 on these PCs that may not get fixed.

- If at any point something goes wrong on one of these PCs that requires having to go back to Windows 10, you can use the media creation tool here to go back to the Windows 10. These PCs will not be given another exception and not allowed to upgrade to Windows 11 Insider Preview builds again. They will be treated as a new PC and the minimum hardware requirements will be enforced as highlighted above.

- Once Windows 11 is generally available, these PCs will be opted out of flighting and will not be able to receive future Windows 11 Insider Preview builds. These PCs must clean install back to Windows 10 with the media (ISOs) that we provide and can then join the Release Preview Channel to preview Windows 10 updates.

And why does ASUS motherboards NOT come with TPM module installed. This is BS! I just bought the Hero XIII z590 a high end board and guess what NO TPM module. It must be bought separately. MSI and GIGASBYTE boards have TPM module installed, but not ASUS. All my Hero boards (got VIII -X and XI) and Z87 pro have NO TPM module.
Come on ASUS this is just so stupid. You have to do something about it and send a module to all your customers .If not, you will alien a lot of people in the future. I am going to buy GIGABYTE in the future, that's for sure

No they don't.....The pc health app says you can't install windows 11 despite what you say . You must buy a TPM module.

Hi,

If your CPU is one of the Windows 11 Supported Processors (look in first post of this thread), you don't need TPM 2.0 module, follow the process at the end of the first post of this thread to enable Full UEFI, Secure Boot and your TPM 2.0 firmware.

I'm in with M12E board.
