Guide to Fix Windows 11 Status Check Failure
Thanks to The edgewe know you will also need a TPM 2.0 chip and have Secure Boot activated in the BIOS to get rid of this error. You will need to consult your motherboard manual to find out how to enable Secure Boot in the BIOS. You can come in tpm.msc in your To start up menu and hit enter to see what version of TPM you have. If you don’t have a TMP 2.0 chip, don’t worry because there is something called fTPM. It is a type of TPM that is implemented in system firmware instead of using a dedicated chip. You can activate fTPM of the BIOS.
