How to Install Windows 11 without TPM 2.0?

Skip the TPM 2.0 requirement. Install the official ISO of Windows 11 in incompatible computers

In case you missed it, Windows 11 has been officially released a day ahead of schedule. You may be looking for a way to update your computer to this operating system. There are several ways to download Windows 11 if you have a relatively modern computer. But the Installation Wizard will check your computer to see if it is compatible with the new operating system.

One of the Windows 11 requirements is TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module), it is a component that is present in Intel CPUs of the 8th generation, including AMD Ryzen of the 2nd generation (2000 or newer). If you have an older processor, it will not be compatible with the new operating system. At least this is what the installation wizard will tell you and the process will not be able to continue.

Microsoft does not claim that older processors will not be able to run Windows 11, only that they will not officially support it. So the reality is that you can use Windows 11 on older computers. I have been using it on my free VMWare workstation without TPM, as soon as the first version of Windows 11 was filtered. .

Note: Windows Update shows a notification if the device is not compatible with Windows 11. It says the following: This computer does not meet all the requirements to run Windows 11. The notification is linked to the Computer Integrity Diagnostic Tool, the current offers more details restricts the incompatibility.

You will need a copy of Windows 11. If you don’t have one, get an ISO before continuing with the next steps. Here we show you how you can Download Windows 11 safely.

Install Windows 11 in Devices without TPM

Option 1- Create a Windows 11 bootable USB without TPM Checking and Secure Boot. (The easiest way, recommended)

This method is quick, simple and uncomplicated and will not be time consuming. What we will do will create a bootable USB drive of Windows 11 using a famous software called Rufus.

Rufus developers have updated their ISO creation software with a simple opti so that Windows 11 images can be copied to a USB drive without TPM and Secure Boot checks.

Which means that you can create a Windows 11 bootable USB drive using Rufus and use it to install Windows 11 on any unsupported computer.

Prerequisites:

Windows 11 ISO Image

8 GB USB unit (or more)

To get started, go to the Rufus software download index https://rufus.ie/en/. Then click on the latest version of the software to initiate the download.

Once Rufus beta has been downloaded, unique the file using the File Explorer on your Windows computer. Because Rufus is a portable software, you don’t need to install it.Rufus will appear on your screen as a result of this.

Note: Plug in your USB drive before proceeding home that you haven’t done yet.

From the Rufus window, select the USB drive on which you want to create a bootable disk. Then click the “Select” button adjacent to the “Boot Choice” section to browse for the ISO image of Windows 11.

Then click on the drop-down menu presented in “Image Option” and select the option “Extended Windows 11 Installation

Now click on the drop down menu under “Partition Scheme” and choose the MBR option if we have an old BIOS. Conversely, if you use UEFI mode, choose the GPT option.

Then you can configure the drive formatting options such as the “Volume Label”, the “File System” of the drive and even the Check for bad blocks of the drive. In case you are not familiar with these options, feel free to leave them as is.

Once you have configured Rufus according to your needs, click on the “GET STARTED” button presented in the lower right corner of the window to create a bootable Windows 11 one.

Once the process ends, you will have a Windows 11 bootable USB to install Windows 11 on any unsupported computer.

Option 2 – Universal Media Creation Tool Wrapper

1. Download the official Windows 11 ISO file here. Or from the Media Creation Tool as shown below.

2. Download the latest Universal Wrapper of the Media Creation tool from Github made by Aveyo in the upper right corner where it says “Download ZIP”. Here is the direct download link.

3. Extract el archivo MediaCreationTool.zip to obtain the archivos MediaCreationTool.bat y “Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update_v2.cmd.

Note: Solo necesitas el archivo Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update_v2.cmd if there is Windows 11 ISO or if you create a bootable USB unit with Microsoft’s Herramienta de Creation de Medios to install Windows 11 with incompatible devices.

If you want to download the Windows 11 ISO to skip the TPM Check, follow the whole process below. The Unofficial Media Creation Tool will download Windows 11 and skip the requirements as well.

4. Run Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update_v2.cmd as administrator throughout the installation process. This will bypass the TPM and Secure Boot Check

5. Run MediaCreationTool.bat.

6. Select 11.

7, If you want to create a bootable USB of Windows 11 then select “Create USB” or download an ISO by selecting “Create ISO” and manually created with Rufus.

If you are using a Virtual Machine, you will want an ISO. For anything else, we recommend that you use “Create USB” with a formatted USB of at least 16GB inserted into your system or computer. This will ensure that you have a bootable drive that will also work with any other computer that does not support TPM 2.0 when you want to install Windows 11 in the future.

8. Click Yes when prompted by Windows to allow PowerShell to open an application. The Windows Media Creation Tool will be sheltered. It might say “Windows 10 Settings,” but it’s actually Windows 11.

9. The Media Creation tool will take a few minutes to download and create a bootable USB with the Windows 11 ISO file.

10, If you already have a bootable USB with Windows 11, mount the installation and double click on Setup.exe.

11. Boot from the installation media or ISO file that you created.

Option 2 – Delete Appraiser files

1. Mount the Windows 11 ISO in File Explorer.

2. Copy the contents of the ISO image to a folder

3. Navigate to the root folder and delete the files named appraiser.dll and appraiser.sdb.

The installation runs, and you should skip the Check of TPM 2.0. If after this it still doesn’t work, check the C: \ $ WINDOWS directory. ~ BT \ Sources on your computer to check if it contains the two files mentioned, and if so, delete them. This is the method that I used to upgrade my virtual machine installation to a new version of Windows 11.

Option 3 – Use Windows 10 files to install Windows 11

You will need an ISO of Windows 10 as well as one of Windows 11 for this method.

1. Open the Windows 10 ISO and copy all the files from the root folder, except the file named Install.ESD, to a different folder

2. Load the image of Windows 11 in Explorer, copy the Install.WIM file from the root folder in the that copy the other content.

3. Launch the Windows 10 installation wizard. It may sound crazy, but this tricks the installation wizard into taking into account the requirements of Windows 10 instead of those of Windows 11, allowing your computer to pass the Check.

I have tested this on a fresh VM install, and it works.

Note: You must have UEFI BIOS and Secure Boot enabled on your computer to install the new operating system.

You should be able to install Windows 11, even if your computer or virtual machine does not support TPM.

Conclusion

After this process, you can use the USB drive or the ISO file to install Windows 11 on your device, bypassing the compromise of TPM 2.0. However, is method is not compatible with Windows 11 updates, which means that you will have to repeat the process to install future versions. It is not clear if this method creates any bugs in Windows 11 so proceed with caution.
