If you are trying to install Windows 11 on Hyper-V on a Windows 10 computer but getting different problems, here is a simple solution to fix some of them. You have to enable TPM in Hyper-V to install Windows 11. Even if your processor is not listed on the official list, you can turn on VMTPM virtually on Hyper-V using this tutorial.
As Microsoft updated their system requirements for the latest version of Windows, you must need Trusted Platform Module 2.0 to install Windows 11. If you have a pretty old computer, chances are your motherboard doesn’t have the module. Now, if you want to try the latest version of Windows without purchasing a new computer, Hyper-V is a good solution for you.
You can install Windows 11 on Hyper-V and run it alongside Windows 10. However, while installing Windows 11 on Hyper-V, you might get some interruptions due to not having TPM enabled. That is the reason why you should enable this security functionality to get the job done.
Before getting started, you should know that you must select Generation 2 while deploying a virtual machine via Hyper-V. Otherwise, you cannot get the required options to install Windows 11.
How to enable TPM in Hyper-V to install Windows 11
To enable TPM in Hyper-V to install Windows 11, follow these steps:
- Search for “hyper-v manager” in the Taskbar search box.

Is TPM available in other virtual machine software?
Yes, TPM is available in other virtual machine software such as VMware, VirtualBox, etc. However, like Hyper-V, UEFI firmware is required for enabling TPM in other virtual machine software.
