Universal MediaCreationTool Removes TPM Requirements for Windows 11

Modders and enthusiasts have successfully removed the most annoying requirement of Windows 11: TPM. The hardware requirements such as the CPU can be overcome using the enterprise version, or simply ignoring the prompt (warning). However, if you have a motherboard or processor that doesn’t have support for TPM 2.0, then you won’t be able to install Windows 11.

awesome gui dialogs to pick windows version and preset action
Auto Setup choice for upgrade directly without prompts, with edition change / intelligent fallback
Create ISO choice for authoring iso file directly via DIR2ISO snippet, including any ‘oem’ customizations
Create USB choice for authoring usb via native MCT, including any ‘oem’ customizations (prompts once)
Select in MCT choice for vanilla MCT processing without ‘oem’ modifications, script quits straightway
control via set script vars, commandline parameters or rename script like iso 21H2 Pro MediaCreationTool.bat
set recommended windows setup options that give the least amount of issues when doing upgrades
pickup $OEM$ folder with post setup tweaks like $OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts\ setupcomplete.cmd or OOBE.cmd
write sources\PID.txt file to preselect edition at media boot or windows setup
write auto.cmd file to run auto setup without prompts from media, on demand
11: Skip TPM Check on media boot via winpeshl.ini file (cleaner than altering system hive directly)
11: Skip TPM Check on dynamic update – system-wide (works for insider previews), also as standalone toggle script

The Universal MediaCreationTool wrapper for Windows allows you to skip the TPM check upon booting the installation media device for Windows 11. Furthermore, it also runs a script that prevents the dynamic system-wide check on updates. This has been verified for the insider previews, and may or may not work with the retail version.

Either way, the Universal MediaCreationTool is a nifty tool that lets you install clean versions of Windows 10 and 11, with or without the OEM customizations. It allows the creation of bootable USBs, ISOs, and Auto Setups for upgrading directly without prompts, or with edition change / intelligent fallback.
