Microsoft Updates Windows 11 PC Health Check App #SHORTS

When Microsoft released the PC Health Check app for users to check if their PC can run the forthcoming Windows 11, it wasn’t very informative about which system requirement had failed to pass.

How to Enable TPM for Windows 11 Compatibility #SHORTS

A new requirement for the forthcoming Microsoft Windows 11 is the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0. Most prebuilt PCs and laptop have this feature enabled already.

This short video demonstrates the PC Health Check app and how to enable the AMD fTPM in the BIOS for Windows 11 combability.

NOTE: Different motherboard companies have different locations and names in the BIOS to enable the AMD fTPM. The example presented here is for the Asrock AMD AM4 motherboards.

UPDATE 6/25/2021: Microsoft updated the PC Health Check app to provide a detailed message for why a system isn’t Windows 11 compatible. Download and run the updated version.
