How To Upgrade To Windows 11 Without TPM 2.0
Overview Windows 11 and TPM 1.2
According to the Windows 11 operating system requirements published on the official website of Microsoft, the computer needs to be equipped with 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with two or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or system on a chip (SoC), and TPM2.0. So many old computers cannot be upgraded because they cannot meet the installation requirements. Therefore, when upgrading the system manually, you will encounter the error that This PC Can’t Run Windows 11.
However, Microsoft also provides instructions on the official website to skip the processor and TPM 2.0 check, so that the computers that only support TPM 1.2 can install and upgrade to Windows 11. But here we still need to remind that there is a risk of compatibility issues during execution, and there is no guarantee that devices that do not meet system requirements will receive security updates or other updates.
If users who are reading this article still want to upgrade the computer to Windows 11 without TPM 2.0, the following two methods will help you.
