Motherboard is MSI B560M-A pro. I do not know what a TPM Chip even is or how to add it - but I looked it up and no I did not add it. I am obviously out of touch these days as I build my PC's to last - the PC's I am replacing are over 7 years old and were originally Win7 - undated to win10. So , I have not had to load a new OS onto a new system in 7 years. I looked up the MOBO on MSI website and yes it has a TPM ( version 2) - but I do not think I "activated it" if it does not default to that setting . Might be the issue- I will check that out today. Thanks
edit: Bios version is dates 4/19/2021, version = E 7D20IMS.210
After looking up on the MSI web site, I see no mention of a TPM chip provided with this board. I looked in the bios manual and there is a bios setting to enable the "software" TPM option and for a hardware TPM too, but still I do not see any mention of a TPM chip provided for the TPM module connector on the board.
Bios manual here, look on page 27 for reference https://download.msi.com/archive/mnu_exe/mb/Intel500BIOS.pdf
The bios manual on that page 27 tells you how to enable the ppt option for a software TPM
I'll look else where for anything for that relates to a TPM chip supplied for this board but I would think if they provided one you would have got it with all the other mobo parts in the box.
It's not like Windows 11 just came out yesterday. Mobo manufacture's should add these chips in the box, after all they do provide a port connector on the board and by now it only makes sense to throw a chip in the goody bag of parts....yes I'm sure they will have to charge $20. extra for a $2. to manufacture chip
