    ok, i'm a bit confused. my mobo [Z490Aorus] is mentioned as having TPM, there's a socket but the manual just says i can plug a TPM into it :-/

    so i need some other actual TPM hardware before i can use/get Win 11??
    Hello mate,

    Check using option 1 to see what it reports for the TPM, and post a screenshot here.

    You do have Intel Platform Trust Technology....

    As a Gigabyte board owner myself (Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Xtreme) and yours being newer, you DO have built in TPM so you do NOT need to purchase an individual (physical) TPM module.

    The setting you're looking for in the BIOS is Intel Platform Trust Technology (or Trusted Computing). In the BIOS under "Settings", look for Miscellaneous, then "Intel Platform Trust Technology" or "Trusted Computing". Enable it and there's your required TPM.

    See page 35 of the downloadable owner's manual (PDF) for your board.

    Thanks for the replies
    i saw that option but i haven't activated it as i had nothing going into the port on the mobo, i'm guessing that's why i don't have any Security items showing on my device manager hoozit. i take it there's no point in activating it if i'm not using it, will i have to have it switched on if i try to get Win 11, or will it know from it's own system scan?

    Please -re-read what I wrote - you DO NOT need anything in that port. You also DON'T need to purchase a TPM chip. And yes, if it's activated it will show in Device Manager.

    That said, if you don't need it it doesn't need to be activated. However, if you intend to run Windows 11, it needs to be activated.

    Good luck.

    I read it, but i didn't probably write what i was wondering very clearly :-D

    it seems i don't need an actual device, but would i need to set the TPM options in the BIOS to "on" for Win11 to be compatible?

    As MS have tried THREE versions of the Compatability Tool, and it STILL does NOT work correctly, and it does NOT tell you what the incompatability actually is, you can try this . . .

    I hope this helps.

    Yes, you have firmware TPM and it needs to be set it in the BIOS. Windows 11 supports firmware TPM.

    Good luck.
