Everutime system boots I get the following message:

tpm_crb MSFT0101:00: [Firmware Bug]: ACPI region does not cover the entire command/response buffer. [mem 0xfed40000-0xfed4087f flags 0x200] vs fed40080 f80

If there is no solution to this How do I add blacklist tpm_crb? I gave this command;

echo blacklist tpm_crb > /etc/modprobe.d/tpm_crb.conf

not working

sorry for my poor eng.

It's about the Trusted Platform Module bullshit that you don't need because you don't trust. Enter BIOS settings and see if you can disable this crap from there. Otherwise create the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-tpm_crb.conf with the line install tpm_crb /bin/false in it. Well I'm trusting you that tpm_crb is the right module name. Run lsmod to be sure. An alternative is to add modprobe.blacklist=tpm_crb to the kernel command line.

TPM is no bullshit, it may actually be useful.

@genodeftest Believe what you want but only down vote a technically incorrect answer, not a perfectly right one.

@genodeftest TPM uses a private key which is only available the hardware chip manufacturer, never end-users. So the security model it utilizes depends entirely on trust in their security. For one thing it provides a permanent backdoor for the manufacturer. Also, in Oct 2017, a code library developed by Infineon, which had been in widespread use in its TPMs, allowed RSA private keys to be inferred from public keys. So TPM is "bullshit" in both that; it is actually very vulnerable, and secondly it disrespects users' freedom being closed source; a "company secret". It has potential, but...

Apart from having this message visible on boot, is there some problem on the system that you think is related to this message? Drivers can report bad behavior of hardware or firmware, even if they also include the workarounds needed to cope with that behavior.

If your system still works as expected, you do not necessarily need to do anything in response to the log message you posted.
