Windows 11 TPM 2.0
We all know that Windows 11 is out and to be able to download it from Microsoft and not the leaked version is only if your system have TPM 2.0.
The latest Bios from May 2021 only have TPM 1.2.
I watched a YouTube video someone with ASUS motherboard and Intel I7 say the the Intel CPU’s should have TPM 2.0 in them and that is possible to enable them in Bios Advance somewhere.
He also mention that some motherboard have TPM header and it possible to install TPM 2.0 cheap.
do anybody knows how to do it in HPZ440/640/840 Bios?
Do anybody know if HP workstations have TPM header?
Do anybody know if it’s possible to install TPM cheap in HP workstation Motherboards to be able to download genius copy of Windows 11?
does any body out ther have an and Ideas and would like to share please will be much appreciated.
Thank You for the info downloaded and installed the new TPM version but still getting the message this pc can't run Windows 11 the processor isn't supported for Windows 11.
My Machine has dual Xeon E5-2690v4 28 cores up to 3.5G How is that not enough minimum requirement is 1gig 2core cpu.
I contacted Microsoft support and they replied was
"Oh, thanks for sharing your concern. Actually there's a lot of users already reporting that issue and the good thing is the developers are already working on it. Your patience is appreciated and your understanding."
I guess we will have to wait and see
Thanks for the help anyway if you have more suggestions I would be happy to try.
After Installing the sp87753 you will have to go to C:/SWSetup got to folder sp87753 and double click on TPMConfig64 after installation a restart will be required.
when the system restarts you will see the progress before windows start.
when log in to windows type in search box TPM.MSC to confirm it was updated successfully.
Well this kind of got me all screwed up now that I've been able stuff in by us my windows won't stay loaded it keeps shutting down and restarting every time I get into Windows I'm kind of freaking out I had a lot of important things on my computer I guess I shouldn't have messed with this at all I'm trying to do some diagnosis on the computer now but it looks like it'll only boot into safe mode if you guys have any help with this I would be very grateful this ended up being more than I should have even dealt with sorry to say please help me.
Well my dumb ass forgot the basics of troubleshooting a windows boot issues. So after I had already reinstalled windows 10 on a different drive, I remembered that you could go into safe mode and use msconfig to stop all the non windows processes from running at startup, once I did that, boom, windows was stable again. I discovered this after spending an entire day reconfiguring a new windows install and redownloading all of my plugins and production software. So now I have two bootable hard drives with separate instances of windows 10. Guess the upside is now my boot drive is a 1TB SSD instead of a 120GB SSD now, but might have to bounce back and forth between them to finish projects I was in the middle of. Now I'm back where I started though. Wondering what's going to happen when windows 10 is phased out. Guess 4 years is a while to stretch this machine for but I'd think there will be a work around figured out by then, ha maybe a USB or PCIE TPM 2.0 module will be a thing as some point. I'd be curious if anyone finds out any other work arounds. Thanks for the help! Glad I'm not the only one using these machines. Seems like the best budget way to get a good performing PC.
Microsoft now updated the PC health check app and guess what it’s tell me my CPU isn’t compatible with Windows 11 because it’s too old.
I have dual Xeon E5-2690v4 I paid $2700 aud for this PC a year ago and you tell me I have only 4 year I hate Microsoft so much.
Looks like what ever you look at it we are screwed . But fear not when windows 10 faze out you will still be able to use your PC there are still people to this day using Windows 7 and Windows 8.
You just not going to get Security updates.
There is a way around it just wait to the official release to get a proper copy of Windows 11 and not the leaked version
watch this video https://youtu.be/iL_X_Sxt0vQ
The big question if you find way around it would Microsoft update find out and block you.
I will probably will try it out.
I confirm that Microsoft (and HP and Cie too) is going to contribute to replace almost all the computers of the home consumer, whether at home in France or elsewhere. It will be a huge E-waste just to have Windows 11, a very good financial deal for Microsoft and its allies like HP. While other hardware are just as good and sometimes more powerful than the selected configurations. When it comes to the TPM 2.0, let me laugh, Microsoft and HP gentlemen, will a gamer or even Mrs Michou really be interested in it? What a nonsense ! They will prefer to let Windows 10 continue as in the days of Windows XP, with all its security holes...
Personally I also own an HP Workstation Z420 which cost me a certain price (Xeon E5-2680 v2, 128 GB RAM, Geforce GTX 1050 TI, ...), and which suits me perfectly. And unfortunately, considering the answers I got on the HP Forum, I have something to worry about... We are practically called "chicken little" when we ask about a TPM 2.0 update for the Zx20 (I will not denounce anyone, he will recognize himself)... "These stations are too old, etc etc...".
So wait and see if Microsoft and/or HP will make an effort !
I would not worry too much about Windows 11 and 2025 cut off for Windows 10... Win 8 never saw the end of Win 7... and the level of difference between 10 & 11 is similar.... but in case you ARE worried... I am running the latest DEV build of Win 11 FROM Microsoft on my Z600 without issue....
You see, although official you are not supposed to run Win 10/11 in a virtualised environment, that doesn't mean you can't.... Microsoft even mentions it as a means of testing builds in the insider program.
Simply enable VTx in bios and you are good to go... (support for virtual machines has existed for a long time in server/workstation hardware)... install a type 1 hypervisor (preferred) and create a Gen 2 environment (TPM 2.0 support)... install from Windows 11 iso, job done...🙂 (yes you can create Windows 11 ISOs from Microsofts insider website)
As a useful note for anyone wishing to try this process out... you don't have to replace Windows 10 to get a type 1 hypervisor.... if you have 10 pro, just install Hyper-V (comes with all versions above Home)... do consider disabling Hyperthreading though (for any hypervisor use other than playing) as a security precaution against side channel attacks
I add that I also own a 2011 HP p6740fr, customized with an Intel Core I7-880 3.06 GHz, 16 GB RAM, Geforce GTX 1050 TI, SSD,... In short, a PC that runs perfectly, like a clock under Windows 10 (initially under Windows 7) ; it suits me perfectly for the use I make of it. It is even more powerful than some configurations chosen by Micro$$$$$oft for its great Windows 11, even if it is in "legacy bios" only, and without TPM. But because of financial considerations only for these big groups such as Microsoft it will remain in Windows 10 with all its security problems that will not be corrected in 2025, or it will pass under Linux... It's a real shame, especially since some countries prohibit the TPM in their legislation...
And HP who doesn't care about updating its Z Workstations (example : my Z420 v2, end of standard warranty on October 23, 2017) which can cost between 2000 and 3000 €, a straw for them who are so rich... Microsoft and HP, same fight ! Pitiful !
The problem is that with Linux you can't make everything work as easily as with Windows.
Linux is nevertheless reserved for the initiated, as long as you don't have any problem, it can be done, but I don't see my wife, for example, doing it by herself, whether it's in case of problem or even to install her software, which by the way only runs under Windows for her accounting software. With Windows my wife is much more autonomous on her laptop, even if I do the after-sales service... :-)
Or you have to install a Linux/Windows dual boot.
Even me, who works in IT (systems and networks), I am more at ease in the Microsoft world, having never really worked with Linux, except for OpenVMS since the beginning of my career 30 years ago and also in the Cisco world.
But indeed, this is maybe the opportunity to seriously start using Linux... ;-)
To finish, I think that Microsoft is going too far in its diktat with Windows 11 (TPM 2.0, UEFI/secure boot, DirectX 12...), not everyone will have the means to upgrade their hardware, especially if it was perfectly suitable until now. And so Windows 10 will follow the same path as Windows 7 which still has its regular users, even if there are no more security updates or improvements, not to mention drivers.
And if TPM 2.0 chip is present on a (recent) consumer motherboard, it was until now almost always disabled by default, and remained so because nobody was bothered by it because they didn't use it at all ! But Microsoft will never acknowledge this, so HP will not bother to develop a TPM 2.0 update for its expensive Z Workstations which are "too" old.
