  1. Move Install to New Motherboard, TPM On/Off, and Fresh Start


    In the near future, I'll be moving my drive with my current Windows 10 Professional x64 install over to a new motherboard. It's been a very long time since I first installed this system, but I'm fairly sure that my version is a full retail version and that I can safely move the license to the new system (Settings > Update & Security > Activation shows "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account", but if it doesn't transfer, I can always buy another license and activate later). My concerns are:

    • On my current system, I have an active TPM, but BitLocker is NOT turned on. So, I won't have to decrypt the drive. But, should I deactivate the TPM before moving the drive over to the new machine? I have no idea if the TPM somehow fingerprints the install and locks it to the current motherboard/TPM.
    • Similarly, on the new motherboard, should I have its TPM active or inactive when I move the old Windows install over?
    • Once I get the old install over to the new machine, I'll do a Fresh Start just to make sure I don't have issues with leftover drivers (I'm going from an Intel setup to an AMD one). Should the TPM be active or inactive when I do the Fresh Start? Will an active TPM interfere with a Fresh Start?
    • And, if things don't go well and I have to do a clean install from something like Microsoft's Windows 10 Media Creation Tool, should the TPM be active or inactive for that?

    Need help on whether to clear TPM on not

    It's clear as mud. As far as I can tell, it's specific to Windows, not necessarily activated programs like MacAfee, games, etc etc etc. MS Office, I have no idea.

    Here's a lengthy doc on it: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...initialize-and-configure-ownership-of-the-tpm

    Windows 10 Bitlocker - install TPM

    My motherboard has an empty TPM socket, so yes I can install a TPM without getting a new motherboard (the manual confirms this also). --Dave
