Fix TPM error

Error con*tent : tpm tpm0: A TMP error occurred attempting to read a pcr value*Fix: Disable TPM from BIOS. > Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is an international standard for a secure cryptoprocessor, which is a dedicated microprocessor designed to secure hardware by integrating cryptographic keys into devices. In practice a TPM can be used for various different security applications such as secure boot and key storage. TPM is naturally supported only on devices that have TPM hardware support. If your hardware has TPM support but it is not showing up, it might need to be enabled in the BIOS settings.
