What is Windows 11 TPM?
TPM is the abbreviation of Trusted Platform Module. This module is used for data encryption, user authentication, hardware antivirus protection, and so on.

To Fix This PC Can’t Run Error first let’s start with simple things first. The first method, you only need an ISO image Windows 11. We’ll be disabling the TPM and Security Boot checks in the Registry before you actually start the installation from the pre-installation environment.
On modern versions of Windows it usually boots a minimal version of the operating system known as Windows Preinstallation Environment. That is to say it will load a set of necessary drivers for a particular laptop or computer and then launch the main installation.
At this stage of the installation, you can edit the registry so that the installation will never check the computer for TPM and Security Boot. Here’s how you can do it:
Notes: Make sure you have an empty drive to install the operating system on.
The first step you must have an ISO file Windows 11 bootable. And you should have no trouble making it bootable. However, if some of you still don’t know how to make it bootable, you can find an ISO image of this operating system on the internet.

- Copy and paste the code below in the text document.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMSetupLabConfig] "BypassTPMCheck"=dword:00000001 "BypassSecureBootCheck"=dword:00000001

- Save the file or document and then you change the extension from .txt Becomes .reg. for example you will save the file with the name Win11.reg.

- In the Command Prompt window, you type regedit then Enter.
- Then follow the path below as a guide in the Registry editor.
