I have a new motherboard (Asus Sabertooth Z87) which cliams to support TPM. However, when I attempt to enable TPM - I don't see an appropriate setting in the BIOS. Obviously I'm looking for something like "TPM: Enable/Disable" :) - perhaps there's another name for this setting? or perhaps I need to do something else before the setting reveals itself.

Any ideas?

Ah, looks like this motherboard comes with a TPM header. I think I need to buy and fit a TPM chip - then something should light up in the BIOS.

Asus tech support confirmed this is the case. I need one of these:

Installing the TMP chip caused the option to light up in the BIOS. It works! – sd_ Jul 10 '13 at 16:32

To enable you just have to read the BIOS option carefully.

After entering the BIOS, visit the Security tab and then set the TPM enabled or disabled.
