Apparently Windows 11 requires TPM 2.0 on a system for it to run. I have a 2.5 year-old HP Z2 Mini G4 which I ordered either without TPM or with it disabled (according to the order form it says "disabled"). When I look in BIOS there is no entry for TPM so I suspect there is no chip unless it is hidden (but I would think that it would at least show something in BIOS to unhide it if that is the case). Any ideas?

"Windows 11" has not been officially released and it seems plausible that downloaded copies of an OS pre-release will be subject to variable levels of incompleteness and problems. Earlier, MS announced that W10 would be the final OS called Windows, so "Windows 11" eventually may be called something else, perhaps, "Helpful Fuzzy Bears Tracking You ".
TPM,"The Trusted Platform Module" error though can be addressed, apparently by replacing the appraiserres.dll file and then reloading W11.
