How to bypass the TPM check to install Windows 11
When Microsoft announced the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11, it immediately caused controversy, mainly because many old device processors did not support or did not have a trusted platform module.
However, as everyone guessed, after the official version of Windows 11 is released, there are bound to be many ways to bypass the detection mechanism to complete the upgrade or installation.
The fact is also true. There are currently many ways to install Windows 11 on unsupported devices, and the upgrade can be easily completed as long as the user is willing.
The most important thing is that Microsoft guides how to bypass processor and trusted platform module detection methods, just add a registry key to get it done.
Microsoft said that it does not recommend users to install Windows 11 on incompatible devices. If users still want to install it, they need to agree to the Microsoft disclaimer.
In the alert, Microsoft stated that installing Windows 11 on incompatible devices may cause other compatibility issues and may cause the device to malfunction.
In addition, devices that do not meet the minimum hardware requirements are not guaranteed to continue to be updated in the future. The updates here are not only functional updates but also security updates.
It is recommended that users use the computer health check tool to test whether their devices are compatible before installation, and if they are compatible, they can directly upgrade through the system update.
Finally, if the user installs Windows 11 on an unsupported device, if there is a problem after the installation, the old version can be rolled back through the recovery function within ten days.
How to install Windows 11 on PCs that don’t meet minimum system requirements:
1) Add the following registry key to your Windows 10 PC:
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup
- Type: REG_DWORD
- Note: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. We cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
2) You can download the media creation tool to make a Windows 11 bootable USB or DVD. You can download the Windows 11 media creation tool here.
3) Upgrade by launching Setup on the media you created in Step 2 on your Windows 10 PC.
4) You will have the option to:
Perform a Full Upgrade, which keeps personal files (including drivers), apps, and Windows Settings. This is the default experience and is the one that Installation Assistant uses.
Keep Data Only will keep personal files (including drivers) only, not apps and not Windows Settings.
Clean Install will install Windows 11 and keep nothing from the Windows 10 installation.
