ACPI TPM Firmware Bug on Startup

Post by SchwarzCrusader »

Greetings, I am new on Linux Mint and I have recently installed Linux Mint Ullysa but I've been encountering this line of errors during bootup (refer to the image attached) and I would like to know if these lines suggest some dangerous/harmful BIOS or hardware faults or problems and if there is a way to stop these lines from coming up during every boot or reboot.

If your computer is working without problems, then it is likely those messages are just an indication the Linux kernel was expecting your computer's manufacturer to have written the BIOS/UEFI firmware in a different way than they did it.

If you have your computer updated to the latest available BIOS/UEFI and you are not having issues then the messages can be ignored.
