HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab032tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello Team,

 

I have HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab032tx, trying to upgrade to Windows 11. Found that TPM is not enabled in the system. Tried below steps,

 

1. In tpm.msc, it says "Computer Trusted Platform Module" cannot be found on this computer.

2. Its not showing either in device manger under security devices or system devices

3. No tpm related options or settings in BIOS under security

4. Tried updating BIOS and its latest version as per the driver given by HP

 

Does this product built with TPM hardware or not? why it doesnt show up in BIOS?

Hi:

 

Your notebook does not have a TPM security device and the processor it has is also not supported for W11.

 

The processor needs to be an Intel 8th gen core processor.

 

If you want to upgrade to W11, I can give you two easy ways to bypass the W11 hardware checks.

Thank You Paul!.. It's helpful to at least to know that it is not supported.

 

Any idea, does bypassing and upgrading cause any security or other issues?

HP Recommended

You're very welcome.

 

I have not had any issues with the 11 PC's I have upgraded to W11 that were not supported.

 

One is as old as 2008.

 

They have all gotten the updates that my one supported W11 PC gets, so everything seems fine in that department.

 

They also seem to boot and run a tiny bit faster on W11 too.

 

On the instructions I provide to bypass the upgrades, I also provide for a way to create a system image so you can go back to W10 at any time if necessary.

Thank you so much Paul...please provide the upgrade steps, I will have a try!!

 

Again, thank you so much for your time and really appreciate it ..

Anytime.

 

Here ya go...

 

If you want to install W11 on your PC as is, you can bypass the W11 hardware requirements using two easy methods.  The first one is the easiest.

 

I would make a system image of your current W10 installation prior to updating to W11, so you can easily reinstall W10 in the future.  I used the free Macrium Reflect software to do that, under the Backup at Home section. 

 

Along with the system image, make sure you create the bootable DVD or USB rescue drive you boot from to access the system image stored on your portable hard drive.

 

Macrium Software | Reflect Free Edition

 

Read and follow the instructions at the link below.

No registry changes needed.  No need to create installation media.  Just download the W11 ISO file, and the guy's zip file.

 

I used the first procedure to do an in-place upgrade an old HP Elitebook 6930p notebook made in 2010 to W11, and I was able to keep my old Office 2010 Starter program that came with the notebook when it had W7 on it, along with all of my other programs, files and settings.

 

The notebook met none of the enhanced W11 hardware requirements.

 

That is the 11th unsupported W11 PC I have upgraded to W11, and not one of them have had any issues whatsoever.

 

They have all gotten all the Windows 11 updates released thus far.

 

I check those against a PC I have that is fully supported to run W11.

 

There is also this way you can upgrade to W11, bypassing the hardware checks...
