Hi All good morning.

So I have a big problem with my PC, currently I'm trying to reinstall Windows 10 into it since I tried to activate the TPM 2.0 that comes with my Motherboard to see if I could update to Win 11, but when I did that the PC started to stutter all the time and to freeze up after a couple of minutes of being turned on, so I thought that if I deactivated the TPM 2.0 from the motherboard again and then did a clean install then the problem would be solved, but now I constantly get an error when trying to format the HDD [SSD?] or to create the partitions for the win 10 installation, idealy I would like to do the install with the TPM 2.0 activated (Enable Firmware TPM instead of the Enable Discrete TPM).

Here are the specs of my PC:
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix X570-F Gaming
Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 3.7 GHz
RAM: Team Group T-Force Night Hawk RGB DDR4 3200 PC4-25600 32GB 2x16 CL16
SSD: PNY CS900 500GB SSD M.2 SATA III
HDD: WD Black SN750 NVMe 2TB SSD M.2 PCI Express 3.0 con Disipador Térmico


And the current BIOS version is 4002, if I don't remember wrongly, and here are some screens of the error I get and the current BIOS config I have: Complete BIOS and error images

I have tried the answer for this post but it didn't work: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/cant-install-windows-10-on-m-2.3082008/

Dont do it right now windows 11 is crippling ryzen chips because their in bed with intel. Is like a 15% decrease in performance . Wait till they fix the bugs and then upgrade. Id just turn off the feature causing the issue. Do a fresh install using the usb tool and wait for the bug fixes.
