We noticed there were two varieties of MSI TPM 2.0 for our Z390 boards. Which one? The model that says for Intel 300 boards?
Thanks, Rob and Tania

TPM 2.0 (MS-4136)

MSI Intel 300 Series Motherboards <<---------------- you have a Intel 300 Chipset so its a MS-4136
MSI AMD 400 Series Motherboards
Supports Windows 10、Windows 8.1、Windows 7(only x64) TPM 2.0

but saying that you do not need a Dedicated TPM 2.0 as your CPU should have a fTPM module on it go into setting - Advanced - Security and in there should be a option for PTT (Platform Trusted Technology that is fTPM 2.0)

It worked! I made the simple change you suggested then the Windows 11 checkup said we're ready!
Thanks for the rapid and CORRECT reply!

Which program do I go into Settings-Advanced-Security? Dragon Center? The BIOS?

restart your PC and hit Delete to get into BIOS and set it up from there.

Here with pictures: https://www.msi.com/blog/How-to-Enable-TPM-on-MSI-Motherboards-Featuring-TPM-2-0

Every board of the last 5 to 6 years already has an integrated firmware TPM 2.0 onboard that just needs to be enabled. And for the boards of the last 3-4 years, MSI have supplied BIOS updates which enables the firmware TPM automatically for you. All you need to do is update your BIOS to the newest one which mentions Windows 11 compatibility.

Essentially, nobody ever needs to buy a TPM module. Either your board has an fTPM 2.0 integrated already and you just need to enable it, or if it's not integrated yet, then the board/CPU are too old for Windows 11 anyway.
