Windows 11 on Limitations on Mac

Recently, Microsoft announced Windows 11 with an all-new user interface and improved multitasking features. One requirement — the need to support TPM 2.0 — can prevent Mac computers from ever officially running the OS.

Some Mac computers support TPM 2.0 on the processor, but none currently support it on the motherboard. This may not be possible in the software. Still, for Intel Mac to officially launch Windows 11, Apple will have to update the Mac for this compatibility, or Microsoft will have to remove this requirement.

We will need a Windows for Mac Virtualization program to install Windows on our Mac. There are many programs out there that can help us achieve this task. In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Windows on a Mac with the help of Boot Camp Assistant.

Usually, people who want to run Windows software on their Mac use virtualization software like Parallels or VMware Fusion. But Parallels and VMware Fusion are not free and they cost as much as $200 per license.
