Hi all!

 

Source: http://sec.ch9.ms/slides/winHEC/03_WindowsSecurity.pdf

 

Run the tools HSTI, ChipSec, & HLK to prepare your computer for TPM 2.0/Win 10:

Would this be advisable?

 

Thank you very much in advance!

 

Regards,

midimusicman79

Since this whole presentation is geared toward large organizations and OEMs, with an emphasis on new hardware for the most part, it has little applicability to the millions of legacy systems that can and will upgrade to Windows 10 because the OS itself can detect the "born on" date of hardware that supports that and know that certain hardware predates TPM 2.0, etc.

 

If you already have GWX (Get Windows 10 [X]) running on your system you can right click the icon in the system tray and choose "Check your upgrade status" from the context menu to check whether your hardware is compatible.

Hi, britechguy!

 

Thank you for the prompt and insightful reply! :)

 

I already have MS Win 10 Pro 64-bit running, and my self-built desktop workstation computer is approximately seven months old. :thumbup2:

 

Not sure if I like and/or understand the need for GWX or if there is another way of checking whether my hardware is compatible, however.

 

BTW, it is my intention to reinstall my OS in conjunction with the upcoming Microsoft anniversary update in July of 2016 by using the MCT, in order to fix some software usage mistakes on my part. :busy:

 

Regards,

midimusicman79

If you already have Win10 installed and running your hardware is compatible.  Pay very close attention to the slide that says "TPM requirements for new Anniversary Update Systems."  Yours is an existing system that will be updated as Windows 10 updates are released.  It is not new in the sense used in the presentation.

 

Microsoft is not suddenly going to pull the Windows 10 rug out from under the millions of legacy machines already running it.  Yours is not all that old, and if the components used to build it are also new then all the required elements mentioned in that set of slides have been "standard" for a couple of years now, at least on hardware produced since just around the time that Win8 hit the market.

Hi again, britechguy!

 

Thank you again for the prompt and clarifying reply! :)

 

Yours is an existing system that will be updated as Windows 10 updates are released.  It is not new in the sense used in the presentation.

 

Understood. :thumbup2:

 

...Yours is not all that old, and if the components used to build it are also new then all the required elements mentioned in that set of slides...

 

Yes and yes, all the components used to build it are new. :thumbsup:

 

Thank you very much for the help! :) The issue has been successfully resolved! :thumbup2:
