MS officially says that Windows 11 will only work on Gen 8 Intel and Gen 2 Ryzen and higher...



Where did you see them saying that, please?

I have the EVGA X299 Micro mATX size mobo running an i7-7800X. To my great surprise the TPM chip is already built into the motherboard.
 
Nothing to buy. Just enable TPM in the BIOS and the Windows 11 Pre-release developers version installs without a problem.
 
So Thanks EVGA for doing it the right way and saving me the extra cost of a TPM Module.

Ditch that X299 board like I did get yourself and AMD processor with a B550 motherboard no problems


That would be a huge waste of money for little to no gain.
 
B550 would be a downgrade compared to X299.
Even the X570 would be just a sidegrade.
 
Only thing you would really gain is a slight increase in IPC
(which isn't really worth it for most X299 owners).
 
X299 also supports Windows 11

Hello friend I already did all the steps but it won't let me Activate the safe mode This is what it tells me: Setup tsabted System in Setup Mode!  Disabled Secure Boot can be enabled when System in User Mode.  Repeat operat ion after enrolling Platform Key (PK) And that is what I do not understand what key I have to put or is that I have to create it.  my motherboard is a Dark Z390 AND it has version 1.09

In my experience order of steps when turning on safe boot mode is important and unfortunately I couldn't find documentation by EVGA for it. I don't know is it same for Z390 as it is for X299 Dark but here are my steps for X299 Dark:
 
Disable CSM
{Boot>Security>Secure Boot>Key Management} Provision Factory Defaults: Disabled -> Enabled
Save & Exit > Save Changes & Reset (this puts ‘Secure Boot System Mode’ into ‘User’)
{Boot>Security>Secure Boot>Secure Boot Enable} Disabled -> Enabled
Save & Exit > Save Changes & Reset
 
If this doesn't help I suggest you post this question in correct sub-forum for your motherboard and call EVGA tech support.

run this to check if you meet all requirements. https://github.com/rcmaeh...n11/releases/tag/2.3.2
 
TPM is not the only requirement, its not even the most important one.

I love Windows 10 and just happened to luck out with a B550-F mobo, 5900x. I really don't see why they needed to add TPM as a measure of security to basically kill anyone's system that is older than Intel 7th gen. When most do not care about much other than using the OS to game. There is always Linux to go with if they truly don't allow older gen hardware to transition. Windows SMH

First,  nobody is killing anyone's system. Just because Win 11 will be out doesn't mean you must use it and do it immediately. Win 10 will continue to be supported until end of 2025, for another 4 years.
 
Next, speaking as someone that is / has been making a living in IT industry, you are wrong in assumption that most are using OS to game. Vast majority of PCs out there are used for productivity tasks, even by home users.
 
Even if that wasn't the case -ANYTHING- that increases security of Windows environment, -ANYTHING- that makes life of security breaches harder, is in my experience and opinion, a VERY VERY -VERY- -GOOD- thing.
 
I have both secure boot and TPM enabled on each and every one of my systems and I strongly encourage everyone to do same. Not just because they will protect themselves by doing so but also because they will raise overall security up. Otherwise they become weak link.

I have a preview version of W11 running and get the message I will kicked out in W11 flighting insiders.
I have just enabled TPM2.0 in the bios and have TPM2.0 enabled and have a listed i7 9800X cpu on the DarkX299 ??? But I still get the message I do not meet the requirements.
(Sys i7 9800X/X299Dark, Samsung SM 961 SSD, 32 GB Ram, RTX3090 GPU)

I ran the utyl to check requirements and again orange for the CPU???

I have it ironed out to secure boot. But when enabling the system wont post.
It's long ago since I have dig into the biossettings, so I loose some track.

How can I enable secure boot and the system to work/post?

If your system is not booting after enabling secure boot it might be due to partition type of your boot disk. Is it MBR or GPT? It must be GPT.

Hey Zoran, its GPT.
Are there any other settings that may be important?
I remember scertain settings for resizable bar, CSM disabled, 4G decoding enabled.

For secure boot to work CSM needs to be disabled and ReBar / 4G decoding are not relevant. Actually if you don't have video card that supports ReBar I suggest to leave it and 4G decoding at default (off).
 
Check my post #35 in this thread for documentation how I enabled secure boot. If you keep having issue I would suggest calling EVGA Tech Support.
