quick question. Have a laptop (NP900X3F) and would like to update to - not to force to! - Windows 11.
The CPU - i5-3337U - is not supported, but I could live with it. The biggest problem is that there seems to be no TPM module at all.
Would it be possible to add it, maybe in a dedicated but empty slot on the motherboard? (I know for a fact that some laptops of the 900-series came equipped with a TPM). If possible, which module should I buy? (type, brand)
Hi, I know it's possible to bypass the check for TPM and CPU type. It's actually very easy, since it seems to require just editing the registry. Or at most to install Win11 using the Win10 installer. Not exactly rocket science, really. However, whilst I expect an unsupported CPU to be maybe a bit slow, an nothing else, in my crystal ball I see issues down the road - say, an update, or a newer version - if the PC doesn't have any TPM at all. So, for my laptop I'll stick to Win10, that is supported in any case up to 2025.
