Product: Z420 Workstation
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Appreciate your help. Also, in the BIOS settings, I was not able to anything related to Embedded Security Device in the Security Menu that I can either enable or disable.
I tried to run the HP TPM configuration utility, it gave me the following error:
Thank you in advance

depending on the region/area the system was sold in you may not have TPM enabled usually there will be a sticker stating no TPM attached somewhere on the inside of the case
countries like china/Russia prohibit TPM so HP disables this feature even though the board may have the TPM chip installed

Thank you for your reply.
I live in Australia and I bought the Workstation locally as a second hand. There might be a chance that this machine came from overseas (China,...)
Is there a way that I can enable the Chip?
Thank you for your appreciated help in advance.
