I am new to using Fedora and am not very computer literate so please can someone explain to me as simply as possible how I can fix the error on my computer.

When I turn on my computer and boot fedora 28 I get a message saying "Platform Device Creation failed 16"

Also I seem to have 3 different options to boot fedora - Please see attached the photo I have taken.

Which one of the options should I use to boot fedora?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Enter the bios and disable

TPM (Trusted Platform Module) feature

The message will go away.
