Unable to install Windows 11 without a TPM chip on Crosshair V Formula-Z. Downloaded ISO from the MS website.

I just read the Windows 11 minimum system requirement specification at About Secure Boot. It only requires that your device is capable not that it is configured for secure boot. My system is not configured for secure boot but windows 11 can be installed according to the PC Health Check.
