    I have a Thinkpad E560 (20EV002JUS) with an FRU 01AW113 motherboard that recently died.

    I was able to find an E560 motherboard (FRU 01AW112) which has the same processor, discrete graphics card, etc. The only thing that is different is my current motherboard has a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip whereas the new replacement motherboard doesn't. Would these motherboards be compatible? Would there be any major steps I would have to take to swap out these different model motherboards. (i.e. bios issues, hard drive swap issues, etc.)?
