NOTES:
  • Support for running FRP or DE in FIPS mode on a Windows 10 system with Device Guard or Credential Guard enabled was introduced in DE 7.2.2 and FRP 5.0.4. It is unsupported in earlier versions of both products, because the boot process fails, which causes the system to go into recovery mode (the certified drivers included before these releases did not support Device Guard or Credential Guard).
