Motherboard manufacturers release BIOS based on AGESA 1207 – they solve problems with Windows 10 and 11 freezing due to fTPM

Almost all major motherboard manufacturers have released new BIOS firmware based on the new AGESA 1207 command library. The new software fixes system freeze issues on Windows 10 and 11 with fTPM enabled.

Firmware Trusted Platform Module (fTPM) is a trusted computing software module for the AM4 platform with Ryzen processors. Enabling fTPM resulted in intermittent system crashes for many users. As AMD explained, Ryzen-based systems “may periodically perform fTPM-related extended memory transactions in SPI flash memory (SPIROM) on the motherboard, which may cause temporary pauses in system interactivity or response before the transaction completes“.

AMD had announced back in May that it would fix the problem with the new AGESA 1207 library, which would include new fTPM and SPIROM interaction instructions. Manufacturers finally got a new version of AGESA and started releasing BIOS firmware for their motherboards based on it.

New BIOS versions have already been released by ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte. ASRock currently offers a BIOS based on the old version AGESA 1206b, but most likely the manufacturer will also release a new firmware in the near future. The correct BIOS firmware version can be found on the website of the respective mainboard manufacturer.
