Is it possible to use Windows 11 on MSI B360M PRO VH Motherboard without issues?
And will the B360M PRO VH be compatible with Windows 11 in the Future?

I've read online that TPM 2.0 and Secure boot can brick your Motherboard if you enable it wrong?
is it safe to enable?
Should i'll be worried about this?

I hope somebody can help me out! :)
My processor is compatible and i have TPM 2.0 and Secure boot..

I have a B450 Mortar Max and apparently it isnt compatible with Windows 11 for the same 2 reasons

Actually it depends on your CPU not you Motherboard and you have to prep the PC for windows 11 by getting it UEFI ready First you do your OS to UEFI format then you may have to update you GPU Vbios to UEFi since neither of you can be bothered to share you system detail you get limited advice on what to do, you will need to Enable UEFI in Bios followed by Secure boot followed by fTPM or whatever intel is a calling it. And a few other setting to get the most out of windows 11 like IOMMU and SVM, Resize bar and some minor performance tweaks

So, i need to enable EUFI in my GPU? is that even easy to do? so you say i cant install windows 11 because my i cant set my gpu to EUFI?

I have:
intel core i5 9400F
16GB RAM.
MSI B360M PRO VH Motherboard
INNO3D NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1060 6GB.

1060 is a UEFI GPU so your good there CPU is also supported and has TPM 2-0 built in to it, so far so good So you need to change your BIOS setting to UEFI first then enable secure boot and then enable TPM followed by SVM and IOMMU But you may need to convert your windows install from CSM to UEFI (GPT)

There is nothing strait forward about updating a existing Windows 10 install to Windows 11 no matter what Microsoft claim.


If your Bis is not In UEFI mode it will take several reboots to get all the necessary setting done Enable UEFI save and restart enable Secure boot another restart with no save Enable TPM and other setting like boot order and power management ect another Save and restart do you OC and fan curved XMP ect save and restart and you good to go

I think my BIOS is already set to UEFI.. will enabling TPM and Secure boot, brick my motherboard if i do it the wrong way?
and will there be support for Windows 11 on the B360M pro vh later this year?

All you will get is a fail to boot to Windows if your pc boots to the bios instead of windows with with UEFI enabled then you don't have a UEFI Windows install. And you will need to convert your Windows 10 install from MBR to GPT

Use Windows PC health check to see if you system is win 11 ready

I just upgraded to the latest (beta) BIOS for my Tomahawk MAX B450 released a couple of days ago and the latest bios enabled TPM 2.0 as default.
So check for new BIOS updates for your motherboard.
Then you can check with this Microsoft windows tool to see if your setup is windows 11 compatible (mine is): https://aka.ms/GetPCHealthCheckApp

Is your motherboard supported for Windows 11?
and how smooth is Windows 11 running for you?

Perhaps you should re read the previous posts in this thread and you will get you answer.

It's a BETA Bios. After flashing it, the windows tool in my previous post says it's compatible with Windows 11.
I haven't installed Windows 11 yet myself, mainly because I'm waiting for AMD to fix the performance issue of the CPU drivers for Windows 11.

I have not seen any drop in over all performance with win 11 I still get the same benchmark scores with win 11 as I did with win 10 Using CPU-Z Cinebench and 3D mark I see no loss in performance at all. Only App that shows any difference is AIDA64 Memory benchmark

Ok. It might not affect every setup or every application. It was mainly for amd ryzen cpu's.
Anyway, microsoft has now released a new build for beta and insder versions of windows 11 that should correct the issue.
So i guess we'll see a official update that corrects the issue soon.
See here for more details: https://www.tomshardware.com/amp/news/windows-11-2200282-ryzen-l3-cache-fix?espv=1

Ok. The issue affects AMD Ryzen cpu's with L3 cache. The issue affected a slight (5%) latency issue on certain games (but not all). There shouldn't be a problem for users to update to windows 11 since the fix for this issue is expected to be corrected on official (ie. Non-test) versions of Windows on the 19th of october as a windows update.

I myself will wait for this fix before I install windows 11, as i don't know if it affects cod:mw performance. ;-)

At 1080p perhaps but if you game at 1440 like I do then should not be problem And once your over 120fps does it really matter.
