Trying to figure out why Windows 8 RTM would not install, on my well-preserved computing machine, was a dedicated effort, but for those with less spare time than me, I will tell a secret.
Windows 8 demands the NX bit to be implemented in a satisfactory processor. Mine which debuted in 2004, a Celeron D, failed the test on this one single score.
My best attempt at installation went like this,.. copied Windows files (100%); prepared files for installation (27%); then a first reboot, and...
Error Code: 0x0000005D, followed by four hexadecimal parameters.
That was the best I could do after many tries. Microsoft was good, and provided the installation iso, as well as several mounting methods. What threw me was that Windows 8 Developer Preview had installed nicely, and ran well for me, but with the RTM Microsoft has decided to tighten the security screws, so to speak, by requiring the NX bit to be implemented.
(Responsibility cheers our helpful progress!)

The bottom line is well-presented on this following page, and I do strongly recommend the interested for studying it.
The following forum discussion led me to the realization of this new Microsoft Windows 8 system requirement.
Again, the interested will find several more key suggestions there.
