The problem even affects owners of Microsoft Surface Book 2 launched in 2017.

In fact, Windows 11 requires a new security component called TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module). You can yourself check the presence of the component in Powershell by typing get-rpm. If you don’t have the TPM component you can try to go to your BIOS settings. If an fTPM option is present, enable it.

In addition, when Windows 11 arrives in a stable version, these machines will have to return to Windows 10 via a complete reset.
