On the taskbar, the Windows Security icon shows the yellow triangle with exclamation point.
When I open it, no warnings. Device security shows green checkmark, but when I open it, it says "Standard hardware security not supported".
I am running Win11 in Vmware Workstation. This particular VM has legacy boot, not UEFI boot.
I would like to get rid of the extraneous warning sign, if possible.

The following page details the stuff you need for standard Hardware security.


You may be able to tweak your VM setting to emulate the requirements.
