  • Hi,

    Error Code:  0x0000005D: Your CPU is not compatible.

    To install Windows 8 Release Preview on your PC, the processor (CPU) must support the following features:  Physical Address Extension (PAE), NX, and SSE2.  Most CPUs have support for these features, so if you receive this error, it is likely because the NX feature is not enabled on your system.

     

    To resolve this error, follow manufacturer guidelines to enable NX (“No eXecute bit”), or the equivalent XD (“eXecute Disabled”) feature, within the BIOS security settings.

     

    If the BIOS setting for the NX support option is not available on your system, you may need to contact the manufacturer for updating the BIOS.  Note that some older processors may not contain these features and will be incompatible with Windows 8 Release Preview.

    Regards,

  • Microsoft needs to update the windows 8 requirements page and get rid of the phrase:

    System Requirements

    Windows 8 Release Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows 7:

  • Hi,

    I got this and found that it was a BIOS issue. I was running InsydeH20 v9.0, upgrading it to InsydeH20 v10, Via Compal.

    I contacted the notebook manufacturer to check about the BIOS upgrade and that got me to the right version.

    Regards
