Enabling Trusted Platform Module (TPM) in Hyper-V VM

One common culprit behind the “This PC can’t run Windows 11” error is the absence of Trusted Platform Module (TPM) support. To address this:

  1. Shut down the virtual machine (VM) running Windows 11.
  2. Open Hyper-V Manager.
  3. Right-click on your VM and select “Settings” or choose “Settings” from the Actions Pane on the right side of the window.
  4. Navigate to the “Security” tab.
  5. Check the box next to “Enable Trusted Platform Module.”
  6. If the option is greyed out, it indicates that the VM is still running. Stop the VM and then try enabling TPM again.
  7. Start the VM once more and proceed with the Windows 11 installation.

Adjusting Resource Allocation

If enabling TPM didn’t resolve the issue, inadequate resource allocation could be to blame. Windows 11 has minimum system requirements that must be met for successful installation. Ensure that your VM meets these requirements:

  • A 64-bit CPU with Virtualization Support enabled in the BIOS.
  • At least 4GB of RAM allocated to the VM.
  • Internet connectivity, typically achieved by setting the Hyper-V network settings to the default switch.

To adjust resource allocation:

  1. Shut down the VM.
  2. Right-click on the VM in Hyper-V Manager and select “Settings.”
  3. Navigate to the “Processor” and “Memory” tabs to ensure adequate resources are allocated.
  4. Adjust settings as needed to meet or exceed Windows 11’s minimum requirements.
  5. Restart the VM and proceed with the installation.

By following these steps, you should be able to overcome the “This PC can’t run Windows 11” error on Hyper-V and successfully install Windows 11. Remember to check both TPM settings and resource allocation to ensure your VM meets the necessary criteria for Windows 11 compatibility.
