Install Windows 11 on an incompatible PC: without a TPM 2.0 chip | Installing windows 11

One of the major restrictions that Microsoft imposes in order to be able to switch to Windows 11
force is the need to have a TPM 2.0 chip or module (integrated in newer AMD or Intel
processors) in its computer, and that it is of course activated in the BIOS.
However, this condition does not seem to be so imperative as that, the new Microsoft operating
system can a priori perfectly accommodate a platform without TPM 2.0… provided that you
manage to install the system on it, the editor doing everything it can to block the installation of
Windows 11 on this type of configuration not officially supported .
Microsoft has also published a tool called PC Health Check responsible for validating the
possibility of installing Windows 11 on your configuration by performing a few tests, including
the presence of a TPM 2.0 module, Secure Boot, a sufficient quantity of RAM (minimum 4 GB)
or an officially supported processor (minimum 8th generation Intel processor, AMD Zen 2 or
Qualcomm 7 and 8 Series).
If this software tells you that your current configuration does not meet the requirements of
Windows 11 , the new version of Microsoft’s operating system will stubbornly refuse to install.
A tool to disable TPM verification
Fortunately, several tricks have appeared in recent months to circumvent the problem, and
allow the direct installation of Windows 11 or the update from Windows 10 to Windows 11 on a
platform without TPM 2.0 . But this requires modifying the downloaded ISO or creating registry
keys during installation.
Another solution is to use a small tool available on Github, the Universal MediaCreationTool . In
addition to the possibility of downloading any version of Windows 11 or Windows 10 from official
Microsoft servers, the latter also allows you to overcome this limitation with a single click.
It is thus possible toupdate an existing Windows 10 installation , create an ISO image or create
a bootable Windows 11 USB key , without checking for the presence of a TPM module.
The procedure for recovering Windows 11 installation files and disabling TPM verification is
relatively simple:
● Go to the G ithub page of the Universal MediaCreationTool project and download the
ZIP file (via the button at the top right).
● Unzip the ZIP archive in a dedicated directory on your hard drive, or directly in a
directory on your desktop.
● Double-click Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update_v2.cmd
● Double-click on MediaCreationTool.bat
The script allows you to download different versions of Windows. At the bottom of the list,
choose the option that corresponds to Windows 11. You then have the option of downloading
the installation files in different forms: ISO image, files to install on a USB key or directly the files
allowing you to install update an existing installation of Windows 10.
Once these files have been downloaded and before starting the installation itself, we
recommend that you temporarily disable your Internet connection. You can re-enable it after
Windows 11 installation is complete
