Enable TPM 2.0 Windows 11

How to Enable TPM 2.0 on MSI Motherboards

Microsoft recently announced Windows 11 and one of its system requirements is TPM 2.0. Thus, many people are now asking questions like “does my PC support TPM 2.0?” or “is a discrete TPM 2.0 module mandatory for installing Windows 11?”

A TPM 2.0 module is not mandatory on motherboards newer than Intel 100 series and AMD 300 series motherboards. TPM 2.0 related technologies are available in Intel chipsets newer than 100 series and AMD Ryzen processors. It can be enabled by simply enabling “PTT” or “AMD CPU fTPM” in “Security Device Support” in BIOS.
