The launch date is 5th October 2021 and is a free update for computers running Windows 10
The official minimum spec required for Windows 11 is as follows:
The big one here is TPM (Trusted Platform Module) which is an essential requirement for Windows 11.
TPM is a hardware chip in your computer which is a secure crypto-processor that is responsible for generating, storing, and limiting the use of cryptographic keys. But not all computers have this chip.
If you currently have windows 10, click on the start menu, type tpm.msc and click open..
Once the TMP Management opens up, you will see if the TPM is present on your device or not.
These are the specifications that you should look out for and MUST be present to enable device encryption:
If the TPM is not found or disabled in the BIOS or UEFI, you will see this under Status: Compatible TPM cannot be found. In this case it’s possible that the TPM chip has been disabled in the BIOS and could be enabled, providing it exists.
If you don’t have a TPM chip on your motherboard it is still possible that your motherboard has a socket for one, in which case it can be added. Otherwise you will not be able to run Windows 11. Call 9775905 if you would like any help with this.
Don’t panic if you can’t run Windows 11 on your computer (or just don’t want to), Microsoft have stated that End Of Life for Windows 10 is not until 2025.
Just call 97 758 905
