unable to play valorant in windows 11 when secure boot is desabled

1 month ago I installed windows 11 and installed pop os in dual boot. For that I had to disable secure boot. Yesterday I installed valorant and pops an error that tpm 2.0 and secure boot are required.

If i enable secure boot to play valorant then pops os won't boot. I mean I don't wnat to install windows 10 again and reinstall all my games. WTF microsoft has donw with the windows.

It's a requirement Valorant chose to enforce, not Windows. Every other game doesn't care.

This is absolutely normal by Valorant standards, probably for their over-engineered anticheat.

I know this is not the best solution but: Ubuntu is very similar with Pop_OS, and it's kernels are signed by Microsoft, so you can use SecureBoot (same thing for Fedora and OpenSuse btw, but those are rpm-based distros). So, instead of changing Windows 11 to Windows 10, you could change Pop_OS to Ubuntu.

 

Another way would be to tinker with Pop_OS and load the Ubuntu kernel on it. I don't know if and how it could work, and it would potentially break stuff in the next update.

 

But as others have said, it's a Valorant requirement, so you have to live with it.
