Windows 10 shift to TPM 2.0 in July

netmagicnetmagic Member Posts: 2

As of July 28, 2016, Microsoft will require compliance with TPM 2.0 for Windows 10.  See TechNet https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/windows/keep-secure/tpm-recommendations

Acer Aspire S7-392-6807 laptops shipped with TPM 1.2 modules that will be non-functional in Windows 10 after July 28.  What steps are being recommended by Acer to upgrade the modules to TPM 2.0?

    Not quite. As I read it "As of July 28, 2016, all new device models, lines or series (or if you are updating the hardware configuration of a existing model, line or series with a major update, such as CPU, graphic cards) must implement and enable by default TPM 2.0 (details in section 3.7, https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windows/hardware/dn915086(v=vs.85).aspx)"

     

    This applies only to new designs, not existing ones. M$ is unlikely to suddenly dump legacy devices, only an edible fruit does that.

    Thanks.  The minimal impact course of action by Microsoft seems the more likely interpretation.  It would be great, however, to hear from Acer about TPM 2.0 support.  This includes whether it is possible to get existing TPM 1.2 laptops upgraded.

    Thanks for the clarification @padgett. I'm following up internally to see if I can learn a bit more.
