    guys i have a bit of confusion in my head because I'm looking for the one processor 478 that supports Windows 8, the model is the Pentium 4 2.8A 511 but there are three models in question .... which one is that supports "execute disable bit "?

    SL7D8 or SL7E2 or SL7PK ?

    thank you!

    Looked at the processor specs and I don't think so:
    Status Launched
    Processor Number 511
    # of Cores 1
    Clock Speed 2.8 GHz
    L2 Cache 1 MB
    Bus/Core Ratio 21
    FSB Speed 533 MHz
    Instruction Set 64-bit
    Embedded Options Available Yes
    Lithography 90 nm
    Max TDP 84 W
    VID Voltage Range 1.25V-1.400V
    Recommended Customer Price N/A
    Package Specifications
    TCASE 67.7°C
    Processing Die Size 112 mm2
    # of Processing Die Transistors 125 million
    Sockets Supported PLGA775, PPGA478
    Low Halogen Options Available See MDDS
    Advanced Technologies
    Intel® Turbo Boost Technology No
    Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) No
    Intel® 64 Yes
    Execute Disable Bit Yes"
    (had to copy/paste wouldn't let me post the link to intel's website)

    You have NX bit there but not VT-x. I think W8 refuses to install without any kind of Hardware Virtualization,
    all the 511s have that NX but not VT-x. Hope it helps
    Cheers and merry Christmas!

    In September I had tested Windows 8 32bit on an Intel P4 3.2GHz Prescott and was working fine. That machine is still running by the son of a friend.
