    Windows 11 Pc Health Check....Arrrgh !


    Right...I have 3 Desktop Pcs Asus K31ADE with Windows 10 Pro ( 8 years old ) , Hp Pavillion 500-242ea with Windows 10 Home (6years old)
    and Dell Inspiron 3670 with Windows 10 Home ( 1 Year Old )

    Downloaded Windows 11 Pc Health Check app...the Asus K31ADE will not run Windows 11 nor does Hp Pavillion but Dell Inspiron will run Windows 11.

    The message pop stating Windows 11 wiil not run is not that helpful in that is does not state the reason why other that checking system requirements ie you have no TPM or Secure Boot which i believe are 2 requirements that are needed for Windows 11.

    Due to current unemployed situation cannot afford to buy another pc. The Asus K31ADE is briiliant in that Windows 10 Pro loads fasters and
    never had to do a re-install of Windows 10 and this is my main pc i use..the Hp Pavillion still runs ok i use for testing programs etc..the Dell 3670 i brought for mainly a back up but it is slower booting up and a bit sluggish.

    I shall wait until official roll out begins in 2022 .

    There is bound to be a workaround by some techies ...

    TPM 2.0 as requirement is not strictly true and a little deceptive to those who have a report that their machine isnít capable of upgrading/updating to W11 (should they want to).
    Intel PTT has been around for a few years now and it is starting to get mainstream attention as motherboard makers have begun removing TPM pin headers from their boards to reduce costs and to free up motherboard surface area for other features.
    I ran the W11 Health Check and it reported that my 10 month old, high spec, machine isnít capable of running Windows 11.
    I did know the PTT isnít enabled by default so I wasnít too worried.
    I simply enabled it in the BIOS and hereís the before and after:





    I have no doubt that many machines wonít be capable of running W11, but Iím sure many can without the actual TPM 2.0 chip.
    Have a look in the UEFI (BIOS) to see if there is the Intel equivalent.

    TPM 2 is far from the only issue. Consider DXDIAG12 and processor requirements too:

    Windows 11 health check


    Thanks for replies...i will just wait..i've checked my Asus BIOS and cannot see anything about TPM or Secure Boot in all options even in Advanced Mode and don't want to mess about with BIOS...Patience is a virtue...as the saying goes.

    Have a nice weekend chaps

    I may be out of luck with all my Dell OptiPlex and Precision PC's which have a 4th or 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor.
    According to Microsoft's supported processor list, only 8th generation and newer Intel Core i7 processors are supported.

    The actual requirements are 1.2 and above TPM ,I had to enable it in the bios and mine was on Discreet TPM
    So many people with AMD machines will get this message and it will be hard for those who don't fiddle with there systems

    Basically in a whole many will complain they can't run it but in reality they need to go into bios to enable it way to go Microsoft for people who know jack about bios and how to go about looking for it

    I don't have a TPM chip, I have Intel's Firmware equivalent (PPT) as seen above in the PCH-FW Configuration section.

    Honestly would think it's the same thing but named different because of the companies that support that technology
    like DLSS vs FSR
