Microsoft seems to be enforcing the requirement of TPM 2.0 chip to run its Windows 11 latest build as reports have surfaced that Windows 11 latest build is not getting installed on PCs that do not have that kind of chips.
Microsoft recently released Windows 11 build 22458 on its Dev Channel and people already started downloading it with the hope that they can run the new build on their PCs. But it turns out that Microsoft may not be willing to have Windows 11 run on all systems – at least not from the looks of its based on initial reports.
Users who downloaded the Windows 11 build 22458 and were trying to install it received error messages regarding TPM 2.0 chip. They took to Twitter to report that their computer was sending out a warning message that their computer does not meet the requirements to install Windows 11. Further, the new build can’t even be installed on a virtual machine.
In order to install Windows 11, the star requirement is that the computer must have a TPM 2.0 module. A component that is also required so that virtual machines can install the latest build of Windows 11. When trying to update to the latest version of Windows 11 with build 22458, there are users who are seeing a message appear stating that they cannot install it because the computer does not have the TPM 2.0 chip.
It should be remembered that although Microsoft said that unsupported computers could install Windows 11 and continue in the Insider Program, they also warned that these would not have new security updates.
It will be necessary to see if with later compilations there are changes in this regard and the message stops appearing when trying to install the new Builds that are coming to the market.
⚠️Upgrading to 22458 from 22454 in a VM requires TPM. This hasn’t been the case so far in Windows 11’s development. pic.twitter.com/XygljvroFQ
