Much has been made of the nascent OS (opens in new tab)’s reliance on hardware-based security - the notorious TPM 2.0 (opens in new tab) - so motherboard makers are keen to reassure their customers that a plug-in dongle isn’t always needed.
“Lots of Gigabyte Intel and AMD motherboards can pass the TPM 2.0 verification of the Windows 11 by simply enabling the TPM-related function in the BIOS,” reads Gigabyte’s statement on the matter. “By this advanced BIOS setting, Gigabyte motherboards can pass the TPM 2.0 verification of Windows 11 to prevent TPM 2.0 support becoming an issue to users during their system upgrade.”
The fix involves opening the BIOS in Advanced mode, and enabling Platform Trust Technology under the Settings tab.
