Ay present I am about to build a new PC ready for windows 11, Lots of info around but not as informative as this forum . Even here I cannot find the answer to the following.
I have a copy of win 10 from my current PC, which I will install on my new PC 1Tb SSD. Do I install this using GPT Disc partition format, secure boot enabled and when do i enable TPM?

You enable TPM when installing Windows 11 as Windows 10 don't require a TPM when installing.

You can just convert you existing Windows 10 OS to GPT, clone it to a new ssd (or restore image to the new sdd), and install it to the new PC. You can enable everything else any time.
But of course clean install is always nice.
You don't have to have the TPM enabled yet but you can do it before or after. What you need now is to config your new PC to UEFI and secure boot.

That was quick and thanks to Badrobot & FreeBooter, I intend to install win 10 first to iron out any problems and then I will do a clean install.

Thanks to you both.
