Recently, ASUS has released a new BIOS update for a number of its chipsets and has also enabled TPM on them, also known as the Trusted Platform Module, which Microsoft requires for the upcoming Windows 11. Chipsets from 2017, including Intel Kaby Lake processor units, have also received a BIOS update.
It has been difficult for users to locate the enable TPM 2.0 activation button on their computers. Just a reminder, TPM prevents attacks from affecting the boot process and your hardware by performing cryptographic operations on your hardware to secure encryption. While in search of TPM activation, the setting names were either “PTT” or “PSP fTPM” depending on your processors. Microsoft has started forcing the manufacturers to enable TPM 2.0 automatically by default during the manufacturing process. If you want to enable TPM / PTT on your BIOS we’ve made a video showing you how.
A lot of ASUS motherboards are still deprived of the BIOS update. To check whether a motherboard has received the BIOS update, there is this list of ASUS’s Windows 11 compatible motherboards on the official website. Once it is confirmed that the motherboard is compatible, please ensure that the BIOS is updated. However, if a user is unaware of its motherboard model, then you can click on the Windows 10 start button, type “Run” in the search bar by the Start Menu, and type “msinfo32”.
Several other manufacturers have taken the initiative to update settings to create Windows 11 compatibility. Companies like Asrock, MSI have shared information regarding their motherboard’s compatibility with Windows 11.
The release date for Windows 11 remains unknown. Originally, Microsoft stated that Windows 11 will be available by the end of 2021.
Detailed information on TPM 2.0 and why is it important to activate it on your hardware is available on Microsoft’s information on TPM 2.0.
