Why are Some Dell XPS PCs Incompatible with Windows 11?
The mentioned Dell XPS PCs are compatible with Windows 11, but fewer PCs are not supported by Windows 11, and there are mainly 2 reasons behind this. The reasons are explained below-
The term TPM stands for trusted platform module, and it is a kind of cryptographic chip. Microsoft introduces this for Windows 11 to enhance security.
That is Why Windows 11 is considered a very secure Operating System compared to its previous versions. There are primarily 2 versions of TPM, Tpm 1.2 and Tpm 2.0. To install Windows 11 on your device, you need the TPM 2.0 version.
Dell disabled the TPM on many XPS PCs with its BIOS, and whenever users are trying to enable this, it shows the TPM has not detected error. Therefore many peoples were unable to install Windows 11.
8th Gen Processor
Many Dell XPS PCs come with an intel processor below than 8th generation, and Microsoft clearly stated that only 8th or upper generation Intel processors are supported by Windows 11. That’s why many users were unable to update to Windows 11.
These are the 2 primary reasons your Dell XPS PC is incompatible with the Windows 11 operating system.
