According to the minimum system requirements for Windows 11, the harsh ones are mainly the demand for UEFI secure boot firmware settings and a TPM 2.0 chip. Even though some old devices are capable enough to match a UEFI firmware, their TPM version is still at 1.0. Can those devices that lack the essential TPM 2.0 requirement still get the Windows 11 update? Is there any way to bypass TPM 2.0 and get Windows 11 free upgrade from Windows 10? Here we come, with a feasible solution for you.
How to Configure Your PC to Be Eligible for Other Requirements Except TPM 2.0
Before going further, we need to make sure that your device meets another seven requirements. EaseUS Windows 11 Upgrade Checker can help you do a pre-check. It can return all the compatible and incompatible items for your reference.
Step 1. Download EaseUS Windows 11 Upgrade Checker.
Step 2. Click the Check Now button to start.
Step 3. The Windows 11 compatibility result window will soon appear. All the incompatible and compatible configuration items will be listed.
In case the test results for the Boot method (currently Legacy BIOS), Disk partition type (currently MBR) and Secure Boot (currently disabled) are not eligible, you can do some tweaks on your computer with the help of EaseUS Partition Master, the top recommended third-party partition manager.
***Since the UEFI firmware is based on a GPT disk, you can tweak your computer to be UEFI supported by converting the current MBR disk to the required GPT disk.
Step 1. Download and launch EaseUS Partition Master on your Windows computer.
Step 2. Right-click the MBR disk that you want to convert and choose "Convert to GPT".
Step 3. After that, find and click the "Execute 1 Operation" button on the toolbar and choose "Apply" to start the conversion.
Next, follow the correct paths to change Legacy to UEFI and turn on Secure Boot.
How to Bypass TPM 2.0 When Installing Windows 11
If you've tried to install Windows 11 from a USB installation media on an incompatible PC or laptop, you'll receive the error "This PC can't run Windows 11" during the installation course. As we said, when your PC can't run Windows 11, it may be because your system doesn't have two security settings turn on, UEFI secure boot and TPM 2.0.
Now it won't be an issue anymore because EaseUS Partition Master can help you enable UEFI secure boot, and next the coming method can let you bypass TMP 2.0 and make Windows 11 install ready to go.
Step 1. When the installation error "This PC can't run Windows 11" appears, click on the Back button in the Windows Setup dialog as shown below.
Step 2. Press Shift+F10 to open Command Prompt.
Step 3. In the Command Prompt window, type regedit and press Enter. This will help open the Windows registry window.
Step 3. Navigate to the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup. There, click on Edit > New > Key to create a new key named LabConfig.
Step 4. Inside the LabConfig, right-click in a blank space and click New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Step 5. Then name it BypassTPMCheck.
Step 6. Right-click on it and select Modify… option to edit the DWORD Value.
Step 7. Now give it a value of 00000001 and click OK.
Step 8. Now you have two DWORD values inside the LabConfig Key. And the screenshot will look like this:
Step 9. Now close both the registry and command prompt windows and go back to the installation procedure and follow the installation wizard to finish installing Windows 11 on your PC.
- Similarly, you need to create another DWORD Value to bypass Windows 11 Secure Boot requirement if your PC doesn't support the Secure Boot, either. For this, create a new one and name it BypassSecureBootCheck. Then as we did above, give it a value of 00000001 and click OK.
