Windows 11 requires TPM modules 2.0 but don’t worry AMD support fTPM

1 : Anonymous2021/06/24 16:47 ID: o74tb2

If you have an Ryzen AMD processor you can enable fTPM in your bios to be eligible to upgrade to Windows 11. I had to get the latest BIOS update from Gigabyte for my Aorus Pro WIFI, go in Miscellaneous CPU settings and turn it on. I now pass Windows 11 health check.

This might vary based on your motherboard manufacturer.

I can confirm this.

I've just tested the Win 11 compatibility checker and failed. Rebooted into UEFI, enabled the AMD fTPM option, re-ran the Win 11 compat checker and voila! It now supports Win 11.

I tested this on a Ryzen 7 3700X mounted on an Aorus B450M with the latest BIOS update.

I also have the F60 Aorus B450M and can't find the fTPM option. Any tips where to find it?

I have the b450 Aorus M and I found it under peripherals. Bear in mind I am running f50.

I had two options in my asrock ab350m - one was AMD cpu and another. The AMD cpu option still provoked a fail. I'll have to try the other.

ID: h2womy7

I had to update my asrock bios for mine to pass the check.

The option might be in a different name for laptop users. I have the Yoga Slim 7 from Lenovo with Ryzen 4800u, and the option I had to enable is called "AMD Platform Security Processor" to get the Windows 11 upgrade check to pass. Secure Boot has to be enabled too.

T14s with 4750u here. Works for me with standard settings. My notebook seems to have everything enabled by default.

Yeah, I panicked a bit when Windows checker said it's not applicable for upgrade, but i was able to enable FTPM via Bios > Security and then Enabled FTPM on my MSI B450M Mortar Titanium, and now it recognizes as it's ready for upgrade. Can't wait for Windows 11 and soon take advantage of Auto HDR and DirectStorage.

ID: h2x4s9g

do you also have resizable bar enabled per chance?

ID: h2x6bcr

Yep. I enabled it along with FTPM, everything seems to work just fine as before.

In windows, you can type TPM in the search and get the all the info. If it's empty, it's not enabled

6 : Anonymous2021/06/24 18:35 ID: h2wx78m

Any performance or application differences by enabling it?

ID: h2x4751

Same question !

7 : Anonymous2021/06/24 18:48 ID: h2wz1jo

x570, 3900x, and just enabled fTPM. I don't have secure boot on but still passed.

8 : Anonymous2021/06/24 19:23 ID: h2x3poc

Enabled fTPM and Secure boot and still failed the test. Anyone have any ideas? I have a 2700x and an ASRock X470 Taichi motherboard.

9 : Anonymous2021/06/24 18:23 ID: h2wvmhf

But why?

I have literally zero need for a TPM at all and all it does it cause headaches

ID: h2wvsg9

You can ask Microsoft. Some are speculating that DRM on MS Store will use the TPM.

ID: h2wwe8i

And i care about the microsoft store because?

See i'm fine with them locking me out of using the store if i don't have TPM enabled, i lose literally nothing

What is the name of the program that lets you take the Windows 11 health check?

ID: h2wj9ca

you can find it here

. It's called PC Health Check

11 : Anonymous2021/06/24 17:22 ID: h2wn9cb

Enabled AMD fTPM and my PC is now ready for the Windows 11 Insider Preview build. Thanks AMD for the fTPM.

12 : Anonymous2021/06/24 18:35 ID: h2wx83u

Does fTPM stand for Firmware, as opposed to discrete?

13 : Anonymous2021/06/24 19:26 ID: h2x43iz

Maybe a stupid question but will this affect performance ? like for gaming ? I have a 5600x and a 3080 for a reason so I wouldn't like to get some lowered perf because of a bios option

thanks in advance for any reply

ID: h2xfq0b

No - it has nothing to do with performance. Just google what TPM is about and you will understand.

14 : Anonymous2021/06/24 17:04 ID: h2wkvcw

I can't find this setting. I have Gigabyte B450M with Ryzen 3600. Can I get win 11?

ID: h2wm61d

Nevermind. got it.

ID: h2wqe2y

Where did you find the setting or what did you do? I have an Aorus B450 M and cant find the setting

15 : Anonymous2021/06/24 17:32 ID: h2woqr6

I have FX 6300 and don't pass the test. Is there similar setting for me to change or I'm staying on 10?

ID: h2wourn

I don't believe FX supports fTPM. Only Ryzen processor. I might be wrong. Someone can correct me here.

ID: h2woyps

We'll see. Thank you

16 : Anonymous2021/06/24 20:45 ID: h2xeeff

People are pleased about having DRM and even enabling it voluntarily?

And I thought drinking bleach against Covid-19 was stupid....

17 : Anonymous2021/06/24 19:30 ID: h2x4le2

It’s times like these that I’m happy I switched to Linux. Never have to worry about my new hardware being incompatible because I didn’t enable a DRM feature on my motherboard.

Thanks for the post.
Never have i been more glad to have switched to AMD a few months ago.

What happens if you update your bios? Do you lose the key stored in fTPM?

21 : Anonymous2021/06/24 20:00 ID: h2x8l4y

What's TPM?

ID: h2x9rnf

Trusted Platform Module - BitLocker uses it for hardware verification

If you encrypt a HDD and then swap it into another PC it won't let you access the drive

The fun begins when there's a firmware update and the drive thinks it's in a different PC but it isn't...

ID: h2x9xvk

Lol wtf is this shit, do they want to have nobody installing windows 11 or what?

22 : Anonymous2021/06/24 17:05 ID: h2wkzai

Liters was wondering about this. Hoping it works on my Asrock b450 steel legend.

23 : Anonymous2021/06/24 17:09 ID: h2wlimf

Im using a Crosshair VIII Hero and fail the test with discrete tpm enabled, will changing to firmware tpm change that?

ID: h2wln14

there is only one way to know 🙂

ID: h2wphhg

Enabling Firmware TPM worked. 🙂

24 : Anonymous2021/06/24 18:35 ID: h2wx8a8

I was very disappointed, then I found this. Thanks a lot! Enabled on MSI B450M Mortar + 5600X and now it shows I am compatible!

25 : Anonymous2021/06/24 18:45 ID: h2wymhd

Do I need Secure Boot enabled to pass the test? I have Ryzen 1600, 16GB RAM, RX 580 8GB, fTPM module enabled - I do not pass the test.

ID: h2x9nj4

Windows 11 does not support 1st gen Ryzen. Wait to see if they allow your chip or upgrade.

27 : Anonymous2021/06/24 18:53 ID: h2wznav

i am sure there'll be a workaround for that in any case

28 : Anonymous2021/06/24 19:38 ID: h2x5lij

I enable that on my ryzen 5 1600 with b350 board and still not working...

29 : Anonymous2021/06/24 19:46 ID: h2x6nwj

it looks like as of right now. Ryzen 1 series is not supported.

I have enabled fTPM (Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro) but I still don't pass the Windows 11 compatibility test. Tried updating to the latest F61 BIOS but still same result. Any idea what the issue might be?

33 : Anonymous2021/06/24 19:54 ID: h2x7u58

Any idea what the issue might be?

Just Windows being Windows.

Hopefully MS won't artificially block installation on older hardware that meets all technical requirements. (Of course they will - they did it with Windows 10.)

34 : Anonymous2021/06/24 20:29 ID: h2xceyg

The weird thing is that Windows itself detects that I have TPM and Secure Boot enabled with BIOS set to UEFI as seen in this screenshot but the compatibility check still fails. Welp, lets see if I would be able to install the darn thing xD

EDIT - Yeah its just one of those MS things. Here's a screenshot of a friend using the leaked Dev build (on metal) and the compatibility check still fails xDDDD

35 : Anonymous2021/06/24 23:49 ID: h2xrox1

Witch CPU do you have¿

36 : Anonymous2021/06/24 19:58 ID: h2x88z0

There are a whole lot of OEM machines out there without TPM, so I wonder if they might change their minds about it

Then again, if it forces everyone's work to buy a new Dell...

37 : Anonymous2021/06/24 21:30 ID: h2xjihj

Windows 10 is supported till 2025 so any companies will phase out thr non compatible devices by them. I am sure oems have know about the requirements for the last year at least.

38 : Anonymous2021/06/24 20:12 ID: h2xa4em

Thanks for this, I had no idea why I failed when I checked just now.

Watch Tech Yes City latest video. It is a pain to having to do it but you don't need activate nothing in the BIOS to get it to work. Just follow his steps for Media Creation Tool + Win11 and you'll be have it up and running.

do what happens if you sell your pc or have to upgrade?

I dont know anything about fTMP

46 : Anonymous2021/06/24 23:10 ID: h2xngs3

I don’t know enough about this but this sounds bad for people who dual boot win and Linux.

47 : Anonymous2021/06/24 23:14 ID: h2xnt5t

I've been using fTPM since I got the 3700X.

I also use bitlocker in all my windows installations and I also use some Linux hard disk encryption in an SSD where I install Ubuntu

It's good to know that fTPM will work with windows 11 instead of needing a hardware Tpm module

48 : Anonymous2021/06/24 23:26 ID: h2xp5fi

Can confirm , enabled fTPM in Bios and done 😀

49 : Anonymous2021/06/24 23:28 ID: h2xpfff

It's pretty easy to bypass this TPM requirement

50 : Anonymous2021/06/24 23:40 ID: h2xqqs9

I enabled fTPM on my ASUS TUF B450M PRO-GAMING paired with a 5600X and it passed the check.

I went to update my BIOS after that since I was on an older version and it basically told me to backup my BitDefender or BitLocker key or something to that effect, otherwise the drive wouldn't boot and no data would be able to be recovered. I never had to set up any key or anything though. I just changed a BIOS setting from [disabled] to [enabled].

How / where would I find this key? I just ended up disabling fTPM from BIOS again and then updating and it worked just fine. Still pass the W11 check after enabling it again. The key seems pretty important to have though...
