Assume that you disable or clear the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) through the BIOS settings on a Windows 10 Version 1703-based device. When you try to run the TPM Management console (TPM.msc), you receive the following error message:
To fix this issue, use one of the following methods, depending on the situation:
Method 1: TPM is cleared in BIOS
If the TPM is cleared through the BIOS settings, close and then restart the TPM Management console (TPM.msc) again.
Method 2: TPM is disabled in BIOS
If the TPM is disabled through the BIOS settings, you have to re-enable it in BIOS or run the following Windows PowerShell command as an administrator:
$tpm = gwmi -n root\cimv2\security\microsofttpm win32_tpm
Note After you run the command, you must restart the operating system and accept any BIOS prompts.
Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.
