Windows 11 (next major & free Windows upgrade for WIN10 later this year) — will require a higher degree of security where TPM 2.0 and Secure boot BIOS settings must be turned on for installation (or other workaounds may also be needed)

To Upgrade to Windows 11, Prepare to Dig Into Your PC’s BIOS | PCMag

To find out if your PC has the security chip, you can go to the Windows 10 search bar and type in “tpm.msc.” If you have the chip, an option should appear that says “tpm.msc Microsoft Common Console Document.” It’ll then let you know the chip’s version, and whether it’s ready to use.   You can also learn whether your PC meets the requirements to run Windows 11 by using Microsoft’s PC Health Check app.  The other notable requirement for Windows 11 includes Secure Boot, a technology introduced in 2012. However, the feature is often enabled by default. You can also find it in the BIOS settings page.
