Windows 11 – how to install the new system, despite the lack of TPM 2.0

For a long time there are comments on the requirements of the latest version of Microsoft’s system. The issue mainly concerns the Trusted Platform Module chip, which is required to install Windows 11.

Windows 11 - how to install the new system, despite the lack of TPM 2.0

Windows 11 requirements clearly define the conditions that our computer should meet before the planned installation. Among them the most controversial is the presence of TMP chip version 2.0.

Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a standard chip developed by Trusted Computing Group. In short, it is responsible for operations connected with cryptography, e.g. for generating shortcuts for byte strings or pseudorandom numbers. Thanks to TPM, a computer can be protected against access of third parties.

How to check whether the computer has a TPM chip?

The easiest way to do this is by using a special utility built into Windows. To open it, press Windows + R, and in the dialog box that opens, type the phrase tpm.msc. A new window will appear on the screen, allowing you to view the available TMP functions and check its current version. If this one is older than the required 2.0 or instead of the mentioned information you will see the message “Unable to find compatible TPM module”, it means that Windows 11 installation is impossible.

Is it really so?

As it turns out the TPM 2.0 module is not needed at all, and a much older variant of the above solution will suffice for Windows 11 installation. There is a simple way to bypass these restrictions.

  • To do this, go to the system dialog box, run by pressing Windows + R.
  • When it appears, type the phrase “regedit”, which opens the system registry.
  • Next, we go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key and change the DWORD value named AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU to 1.
  • After approving the above changes, we can proceed to install Windows 11 using the dedicated assistant.

However, that’s still not all. A developer operating on the GitHub platform presented a script that interacts with the Universal MediaCreationTool. As it turns out – running it will allow us to install Windows 11 even on a computer that does not support the TPM chip at all. What’s interesting – this method will allow us to run the installer of the new version of the system on hardware that does not meet the requirements at all.

The script allows us to bypass the algorithms that check the components of our computer. This way, the entire update process starts from the moment the system is installed.
