The brand new Windows 11 is due to be launched in the next few weeks. It looks beautiful and I’m sure will go on to be a very popular operating system.
But there’s a problem with upgrading existing Windows 10 computers, that few business owners and managers around here are aware of.
While Windows 11 is similar to the current Windows 10, it has strict hardware requirements. And even newer computers won’t run it unless they have a specific security feature switched on.
Windows 11 insists your computer has something called a Trusted Platform Model (TPM) chip. This is a special tamper-proof chip to generate, store and protect encryption keys. You’ll find these in the most recent computers.
But here’s the problem… often it hasn’t been enabled by default. To switch it on, you have to dive deep into the security or boot sequence settings.
In my experience, most people are very uncomfortable changing anything here, for fear of killing their computer!
For businesses with lots of computers, checking which ones can be upgraded to Windows 11, and then checking the TPM chip in each is going to be a lot of work and hassle.
I heard a great phrase once – that to succeed in business “you should only do, what only you can do”.
I’m sure you and your team have better things to do than fiddle with complicated settings in your computers! So…
Would you like my team to check your computers for you, to see which can be upgraded to Windows 11?
And, of course, check that special TPM chip is enabled?
