Users in China are unable to upgrade to Windows 11 due to TPM chip requirements

Windows 11 has been officially launched as a stable version and every user with Windows 10 can get a free upgrade to Windows 11. It is not only better in performance and interface but also provides users with many different security features. Among all these features, it seems that not everyone will be able to gain an advantage from the new operating system. It has been found that many users are having a very hard time upgrading their operating system and the problem seems to be big, especially in China. The major cause of this issue is the requirement of Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for Windows 11, and foreign Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is already banned in China.

Due to this, many Chinese PC users are unable to upgrade their Windows systems. Since the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chips are the requirements for Windows 11, most of the countries are able to upgrade. However, it is not possible for Microsoft to not know about the ban of Trusted Platform Module (TPM) in China, but still, they have not addressed the issue before the official launch. The issue was mainly found in China and Russia, where Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is not present in the systems.

While other countries go with Trusted Platform Module (TPM), China goes with Trusted Cryptography Module(TCM). Therefore, there does not seem to be a resolution for the same right now and currently, Chinese users are unable to upgrade their operating system. However, Microsoft will not let one of the biggest markets of consumers just go down like that. We might see an exception or resolution for the same in the future.
