Chip required by Microsoft serves as a safeguard for data security
White Microsoft preparing to launch windows 1 1 On 24th, a build of the new operating system was leaked on the internet. Many people encountered the error “TPM 2.0 not supported by the system” when the operating system failed to install. But after all, What is TPM 2.0? Meaning of an abbreviation Trusted Platform Module (Trusted Platform Module) and a. refers to the Processor cryptography installed on the motherboard Intended to help maintain password integrity as well as provide greater security during operating system boot.

The chip works with a series of registers called PCRs (Platform Configuration Registers), which analyze all boot components, including the computer’s BIOS. Each time a computer starts up, a number of hashes (data mapping algorithms) are generated, the function of The TPM is receiving this information in an encrypted form and storing it securely in a separate location from the rest of the computer. So if the security cpu or even Firmware is compromised, only people who have access to the TPM can access your PC’s information.
Since hashes are written in TPM, the encryption processor is able to identify any changes during the system initialization phases. Each time it is booted, TPM 2.0 generates an internal SRK (Storage Root Key), which can be programmed not to access Windows 11 itself. Whenever the system requests some information from the TPM, it provides the public and private keys to the system encrypted by the SRK. For simplicity, the data provided by TPM 2.0 can only be decrypted by the chip, which remains isolated from the rest of the system..

The technology has recently been implemented on motherboards, so older models don’t have the chip. As of now, it is not known whether Microsoft will force users to have motherboards with TPM 2.0 of the final version of the new Windows 11, or if this is a request only present in trial versions. Another detail is Many newer motherboards have TPM 2.0, but it is disabled and has to go through a BIOS activation process before it can be used.. Below is an image we captured from a model of ASUS Besda No Chip AMD B550. By default TPM 2.0 was not activated and it was not possible to perform the installation, after activating TPM 2.0 the installation process proceeded normally, both while upgrading Windows 10 to Windows 11, as a fresh installation of Windows 11.
Anyway, as the Windows 11 operating system was built on the older model, There are ways to remove the error before or after installing the system. If Microsoft still requires the presence of TPM 2.0 after the official launch of the new Windows, some companies such as ASUS offer TPM 2.0 automatically, which can be installed via a USB connection, without changing the motherboard. .
