    It may be because your BIOS doesnt support "NX" read about it here

    You can also Google the error code for other possible solutions

  • ZZ is correct. Not all P4 support NX-Bit. You need at least a Prescott version. If you have an older version (Willamette, Northwood or Gallatin) you can't use Windows 8. Run CPU-Z and look at the code name which version you have:

  • I've got a Cedarmill P4 and Asus P5PL2 mb. They supports NX Bit but you must enable it. Its default settings disabled it. I later found this BIOS settings at the Advanced CPU Settings and I installed Windows 8 at last...

    So, you must check your BIOS first...
