Has anyone tried to install on Skylake CPU? Was wondering if its worth downloading for my pc which has a i7-6700K?

I have TPM 2.0 and secure boot enabled in bios.

Thanks

Just out of curiosity - what motherboard do you have?

I`d have to see if my Sabertooth Z170 has TPM anywhere in the bios, I`m not concerned with updating it to W11, not now anyway.

If you're lucky, it has an Intel PTT option. The firmware implementation of TPM has been around since Haswells, but not all motherboards have that option, whether or not they have a physical TPM header. You might also have to turn off all CSM features even if you're using a UEFI mode, just to make those settings visible.

My Z170 Deluxe has a TPM header, but no mention of PTT in the manual so it looks like PTT is not an option here. CSM is at a default setting (UEFI + CSM enabled) so I'm not going to mess with that in fear of booting problems.
