According to official information from Microsoft, Windows 11 requires CPU chips with TPM 2.0. However, there are several ways to bypass this requirement for the new operating system. A TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a security device that is mainly used to generate encryption keys securely. It is a chip that is soldered to the motherboard of a computer.
Windows 11 requires a computer to be equipped with 4 GB of memory, a UEFI motherboard with Secure Boot and a TPM 2.0 security chip. Many PCs do not have this fairly demanding minimum configuration and are failing when installing Windows 11: “This PC cannot run Windows 11” In this tutorial, we will discuss WinPass11, which allows you to install Windows 11 on an unsupported PC/Laptop.
