This User has posted about this on multiple forums ....
He she did a similar thing with his earlier topics here ...
... when he was told not to post on multiple forums.
It is my belief that this User has no real need of help, and is just wanting to waste people's time.

yea I asked on multiple forums, I usually use toms and there's a lot of activity there, so they don't really care about new threads all the time and stuff, but you get different answers all over, some could be wrong.
Anyway, this mobo does not have TPM. I searched the pdf manual for TPM and trusted platform module.
It does have intel Trusted Execution Technology Intel TXT, but I'm not sure if it's the same as TPM.
Intel TXT(LT) Support (Note) Enables or disables Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT). Intel® Trusted Execution Technology provides a hardware-based security foundation. (Default: Disabled)
Windows10 Pro says here TMP is required for TPM protection, but maybe that's different than Bitlocker?
I guess I'll contact windows and some motherboard manufacturers in the meantime what the best option is.
** Requires TPM 1.2 or greater for TPM based key protection.

I think the intel Trusted stuff includes TPM so try turning it on in the BIOS and then see if you have TPM

UPDATE: I just chatted with microsoft and the person said just enable TPM in BIOS but I think I checked everywhere in BIOS and don't see any option (I don't see option for the Intel TXT either). And as mentioned TPM is nowhere mentioned in the PDF manual.
I think I might rather but a new motherboard instead of Windows 10 Pro. Despite any more loss if any (I can net about $75 on ebay for this current motherboard and buy the right one for maybe $140?, or I can buy windows 10 Pro for $199 or upgrade from Home for $99 but I'm not sure if I want two product keys and 2 USB sticks and also as mentioned maybe TPM seems to still required for Windows 10 Pro bitlocker/encryption). Also the only other difference between Home and Pro is Pro is more for networking/sharing and I'd rather it not maybe be more prone to default or wanting to share my data across the router.

There are very good reasons why you should not repeatedly post for help on the same subject at multiple forums.
This post on another forum puts it pretty succinctly .... https://www.excelgur...content.php?184
I strongly suggest you read it.
