TPM is a "Trusted Platform Module" if enabled it will encrypt your data stored on your computer. When changing CPU its best recommended to disable it before doing so. If you have an encryption key you can use it to "unlock" the system, but if not then reinsert your old CPU and disable it before upgrading.

I suck a typing, preparw for typos.

fTPM or Firmware Trusted Platform Module is a security device that handles various cryptographic functions that the system can use for security. If the PC is brand new you can ignore/acknowledge this message. You'll find that this is required to be enabled for Windows 11.

Enabling fTPM will not encrypt the drive by any means. If they enabled TPM then used drive encryption like Bitlocker, that would encrypt the drive. Enabling fTPM on its own will not do anything.

Based on comments from your other thread, is this a brand new machine that your friend built? Do you know if the drive is encrypted with Bitlocker? It likely wasn't and you should just press Y to continue.
