Before Windows 11 announcement by Microsoft, many Windows PC users by not aware of the Secure Boot and TPM module. Now, most Windows users know what Secure Boot and TPM chip is? Now, apart from the processor, RAM, and hardware, to install Windows 11, Microsoft has made Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 mandatory. That means if your computer or laptop does not support Secure Boot and TPM 2.0, you can’t install Windows 11. However, Microsoft is providing a free upgrade over Windows 10 to Windows 11. That means if you purchase a valid product key or you have purchased your PC preinstalled Windows 10 without paying extra money, you can enjoy the latest Windows 11 on your computer or laptop. In other words, genuine Windows 10 users will get a free update to Windows 11.
After a few days of the announcement of Windows 11, hackers have got access to bypass TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot to Install Windows 11. That means you can install Windows 11 without the TPM 2.0 chip and Secure Boot. However, Windows 11 is still to arrive in the public domain, which means Microsoft may patch the loophole, and in the future, you will be unable to install them on your PC.
If you are curious about the final release of Windows 11, you should check your PC hardware configuration, if your computer or laptop is compatible with running Windows 11. Checkit is a freeware tool from WiseCleaner that checks your PC if it is compatible with Windows 11.
