[Fix] PCR7 Binding Is Not Supported | Device Encryption Failures (100% Working)

Are you confronting issues like- PCR7 binding is not supported or PCR7 configuration binding not possible while Checking system Information?

Indeed, you are not alone in who faces the issue. 

PCR7 Binding Is Not Supported

There are a couple of questions arising according to the issue. What the message means or what to do with the issue, or how to deal with it. Whatever the question is, you will get all the probable answers from the entire article. Let’s explore.

What Does It Mean? 

The message is related to the motherboard function called Trusted Platform Module (TPM). If your PC has TPM and you found the issue in System Information, you will need to take possible steps to fix it. 

The message means that the system can not communicate with the TPM. It happens because of the absence of TPM. Or may the TPM hasn’t been set up properly.

How to Fix If PCR7 Binding Is Not Supported

If the message appears on your System Information section and the PC has the TPM chip, you should ensure the proper setup of two things. These help you to get rid of the issue.

  • No. 1: GPT Partition System
  • No. 2: Enable TPM 

No. 1: GPT Partition System

System Drive must have the GPT partition system to communicate with the TPM. You can check the availability of the GPT partition by following the below steps-

Step 1

While the window becomes visible, you have to copy the below text and paste it into the app window. Then hit the ‘enter’ key.
