Unfortunately no.

TPM 2 requires a chip on the motherboard, whilst these can be added to some motherboards many like mine, do not have a slot for it or a BIOS capable of operating it. Ignoring the Vista like need for 4gb Ram, there are only a very few processors that will work with it as well.

Even allowing for the replacement of older windows machines over the next four years, I think it safe to say that Microsoft will be severely upsetting over 1 billion Windows users. Not what I would call a smart business strategy .

I think the lack of enthusiasm shown for it by senior Microsoft people at the launch speaks volumes. Expect a screeching U turn in the coming months or years, with 10 continuing to be supported alongside 11 for those that want or need the added security.
