bypass Windows 11 TPM 2.0 requirement

Method: Modify Registry

This method involves simply editing Windows Registry during the installation process of the new operating system. On unsupported devices, if you try to install the new OS, a message will appear on your screen stating that the computer isn’t compatible.

At that screen, you need to press Shift+F10 to open Command Prompt window and modify the registry. In Command Prompt, you need to run regedit.exe and create a new key “LabConfig” under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup. In the “LabConfig” key, create two new entries:

  • BypassTPMCheck=dword:00000001
  • BypassSecureBootCheck=dword:00000001

Save the changes and compatibility errors will disappear.

Update | 2021 – October – 06

The fix itself is fairly straightforward too. Simply hit Win+r and type regedit to bring up the registry editor. Make your way to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup and then right-click the main panel and create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value with a name of AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU and set its value to 1

How to fix the Windows 10 version 2004 network connectivity bug

Windows 10 updates tend to break things, and the most recent Window 10 version 2004 update is no exception. According to numerous forum posts, the latest irksome bug prevents Windows 10 apps from accessing the internet even when the PC is successfully connected and your web browser is working just fine.

Annoyingly, the bug seems to show up without warning or reason. If you see a yellow “No Internet Access” error triangle in the Windows 10 system tray and can’t connect to the internet in apps like Steam, Spotify or Fortnite, but can browse the web as you normally would, you’ve got the bug.

Microsoft acknowledged this bug in a support forum thread and says it stems from an issue with Windows 10’s Network Connectivity Status Indicator. The company is investigating and will patch the problem it once a solution is engineered, but some users have already found a reliable workaround that should restore network connection for your apps in the meantime.

How to fix the Windows 10 version 2004 network connectivity bug

  1. Search for “Registry Editor” using the search bar in the Windows taskbar
  2. Open Registry Editor from the search results and click “Yes” when prompted to let the app make changes.
  3. In the Registry Editor app, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NlaSvc\Parameters\Internet
  4. Right-click “EnableActiveProbing” and select Modify.
  5. Change the “Value data” from 0 to 1.
  6. Click “OK” to close the window and save your edits.
  7. Close the Registry Editor.
  8. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

With luck, your apps will be able to connect to the internet again once you reboot your PC. If they don’t, double-check you input that registry fix properly. If you’re still out of luck, you might have to seek out a different solution or wait for Microsoft’s patch. If you happen to have encounter another fix or discovered your own

What is PortableBaseLayer Partition?

Some Windows 10 users with May 2019 update are seeing a new partition called PortableBaseLayer. If this is your first time, you might wonder what in the world is the PortableBaseLayer partition.

What is PortableBaseLayer Partition?

Before you ask me, no, PortableBaseLayer is not a virus, malware, or rouge partition.

PortableBaseLayer is a system partition created for Windows Sandbox.

When you enable the Windows Sandbox, the operating system will automatically create the PortableBaseLayer partition and places all the important files that are necessary to run the sandbox.

Depending on your usage, the partition size will be anywhere from 1GB to 10GB. Sometimes, it might even exceed that range too.

In case you don’t know, Windows Sandbox is what it sounds like. It is a built-in sandbox that lets you test programs and settings without affecting the host operating system. Compared to traditional solutions like VMware and VirtualBox, Windows Sandbox is lightweight, fast, and easy to use.

All pro and enterprise users can enable Windows Sandbox as long as the system meets the minimum requirements.

Can I Delete PortableBaseLayer Partition?

No, don’t delete the partition manually as it might corrupt the Windows Sandbox.

Game DVR problem: “Sorry, this PC doesn’t meet the hardware requirements for recording clips.”

According to Microsoft These are the Requirements for “Game DVR On Windows 10”

Hardware requirements for Game DVR on Windows 10

To record game clips with Game DVR on Windows 10, your PC’s video card must support one of these encoders:

  • Intel Quick Sync H.264
  • NVidia NVENC
  • AMD VCE

To check the video card on your PC, go to the search box on the taskbar and search for “device manager.” In Device Manager, expand Display adapters.

Video cards that support NVidia NVENC include:

  • Most GeForce 600 series or later
  • Most Quadro K series or later

Please refer to NVIDIA NVENC Support Matrix for more details.

You always have the option to take a screenshot of your game, even if you don’t have one of these cards.

If your PC can’t record game clips, you’ll get a message like this when you try to make one:

Sorry, this PC doesn’t meet the hardware requirements for recording clips.

In that case, do one of the following:

  • Get the latest driver for your current video card (if your PC has more than one video card, make sure the drivers are up to date for both)
  • Install one of the video cards listed here

If your PC has multiple video cards and only one supports Game DVR, make sure you’re using the monitor connected to that card when you record your game.

If you have a supported video card whose driver is up to date and you still can’t record games, open Feedback Hub (a Windows 10 app) and add feedback so we can investigate.

Windows wouldn’t hibernate with Error Event ID 45: volmgr

Just to share my 3-day battle with Windows 7 32bit Pro after it was installed on the Kingston V+100E Self-encrypting SSD 64GB.

To be fair, the problem has little to do with the Kingston SSD actually. There may be incompatibility with Truecrypt 7.1 & Self-encrypting SSD, or it could be old registry entries left-over from my old encrypted HDD but I didn’t investigate further since I’ve solved my hibernation problem.

Update at the end of this article!

*******************************

System:

OS: Win7 32bit Pro (New install, not upgrade)

Laptop: Fujitsu T4215 with CPU upgraded to Intel T7200

HDD: WD Scorpio Black 320GB (Truecrypt 7.1 System FDE) -> Kingston V+100E 64GB (Self-encryption)

Drivers: (All updated to latest from manufacturer)

********************************

Everything seems to work well until I run Easy Transfer to transfer my account from my old HDD to the new SSD. My old WD Scorpio Black was encrypted using Truecrypt 7.1 so there were active Truecrypt registry entries which I’m not aware of & few people seem to know about. Google it & you would’t find many entries if any.

Hibernation will always fail with black screen. When KB/Mouse is touched, the login screen is shown. Event Viewer will show Event ID 45 Error caused by volmgr on \device\harddiskvolume2 (which is my C:\). What’s cryptic is the error is a crash dump driver error. What has crash-dumping in volmgr.sys got to do with hibernation?

A lot in fact, after kernel-mode drivers had crashed or unloaded, the only way the NT Kernel could do stuff is through special filters apparently. So to activate Hibernation, the Kernel has to unload everything & dump everything in RAM to HDD. What if you’re running Bitlocker or Truecrypt, which are software-based encryption?

The Kernel has to filter the RAM data thru these small programs so the Hibernation or Crash dumps are encrypted as well, else there’ll be a security risk. dumpfve.sys for Bitlocker & truecrypt.sys for Truecrypt 7. Unfortuntately I don’t see this documented anywhere. (I did not search SourceForge though.) I found out when I was hunting in the registry.

This registry key is where I found the offending entry.

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl -> DumpFilters

In it, I found “dumpfve.sys” & “truecrypt.sys”. Now I did not install Truecrypt in the new system so the only way is thru’ Easy Transfer.

OK, fine, so I install Truecrypt 7.1 to make sure the proper files are installed. But after rebooting, Windows BSOD & I couldn’t see any crash dump! It may be that active Truecrypt registry is still there thinking the SSD was encrypted. Well I can’t have that! So I did a System Restore & booted up. I then remove the truecrypt.sys entry in all Registry keys, adjust my pagefile size, enabled crash dump 128KB & enabled hibernation with “-size 100”.

Hit the Hibernation button & it WORKS!!!

After that, whatever changes I did to pagefile.sys & crash dump size did not affect Hibernation.

So for those of you who have hibernation problems with Event ID 45 from volmgr. Check your crashdump filter.

Now I still need Truecrypt to access the old encrypted WD Scorpio Black, so what I did was to install Truecrypt in “Portable” mode & run the .exe files instead of an installation. Done!

Update (19/3/2012):

Recently I cleaned the registry of all entries with Truecrypt & install the latest 7.1a version & Windows did not BSOD so I’m a happy camper again. Seems like Truecrypt doesn’t leave many entries in Windows itself, which is a GOOD thing!
