What Are the Fixes?

Now that you know what the problems could be, here are a few possible fixes for them.

Hardware Requirements

Rather than guessing what the hardware requirements are, you should check it out and compare it with your system. If it does not meet the criteria, you need to upgrade your system or purchase a new one if the current one is too old. The system requirements for Windows 11 are given below:

  • 4GB Ram
  • At least 2 core processors of 1GHz or faster
  • Minimum available storage of 64GB
  • UEFI & Secure Boot capable
  • The graphic card should be compatible with DirectX12 or higher
  • TPM 2.0

Enabling TPM

The TPM chip is located on the motherboard and handles the encryption of your device. For Windows 11 to run on your computer, you need to enable TPM 2.0. Below are the steps to enable TPM 2.0 on your system.

  • Go to settings and click on 'Update & Security'
  • Click on 'Recovery' and then click on 'Restart Now'
  • On the next screen, click on 'Troubleshoot' and then 'Advanced Options'
  • Under advanced options, click on 'UEFI Firmware settings'
  • Click restart on the next screen
  • You will then see the security settings page. Choose the TPM option and change it to enabled. Press enter when done.
  • Exit the settings and restart your computer

Enabling Secure Boot

Apart from TPM 2.0, your system will also have to support the Secure Boot option. Secure boot prevents any malware from corrupting your system when booting. The option to enable secure boot is simple.

  • Go to settings and click on 'Update & Security'
  • Click on 'Recovery' and then click on 'Restart Now'
  • On the next screen, click on 'Troubleshoot' and then 'Advanced Options'
