    I'm not to sure if this is the correct place to ask this question, but I'll try and hopefully someone will be able to answer my question.

    I have a Pentium 4 with an ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe, and I am unable to install Win 8, 8.1 & 10 because my CPU does not support NX bit. I'm trying the cheapest way so I can run Win10 with my older PCI cards.

    Can anyone tell me if I purchased a Pentium D processor, purchased a MoBo for the Pentium D processor, which has XD bit (which is supposedly be an NX bit implementation), and used my older PCI cards (an Adaptec SCSI card 39160 - Ultra160 SCSI (they are really expensive)), will I be able to install and run Windows 10?

    I would really appreciate it very much if anyone can assist me with this issue or maybe suggest an alternative inexpensive way of running Windows 10.
    Thank you in advance.
    David

    Here are some comments and a link to a thread where someone was having problems similar to yours, Windows 10 not installing because of non-support for the NX bit.
    Maybe something there will be of some help:

    Windows 8 and 10 won't run if your CPU does not support the NX Bit. There's a patch for Win8, but not for Win10 yet. forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/62441-Windows-10-No-NX-BIT"

    U might have to enable that in BIOS, found this on Another site..
    Once you are in BIOS you will need to look for the NX setting - it is usually shown in the 'Advanced Configuration' menu (or similar), though every BIOS is different, so the heading may also be different. Also note that the NX (no execute bit) can have multiple names in a BIOS, including EDB (Execute Disabled Bit), Execute Disabled Memory Protection, EVP (Enhanced Virus Protection), and No Execute Memory Protect.
    Keep your eyes peeled for all of those names and then enable the setting "

    *Update*

    Went into the Bios as suggested by 'edwe' and turned off 'TX'. This stopped the no 'NX' problem. Stuck the USB in with Win10 on and rebooted. Chose 'keep files'.

    Win10 Installed and is now working fine... "

    I have an LGA 775 with a core 2 duo in, can't remember the exact number off hand.
    This is in a Abit IP 35 Pro XE. It runs win 8.1 and 10 no bother at all.

    I recon you could pick summet up like those fairly cheap.

    Edit

    Sorry it ain't a core 2 duo but a Core 2 Quad Q9300. Still, I only paid around £30 for it.

    Thank you for your input! Can you tell me if I can use the same type of memory I'm using with my Pentium 4, and does is have PCI slots so I can use my old card(s)?

    You really give me hope, that is until I'm working full time so I can build my i7.
    Thank You.

    Your P4 will be socket 775, what ever RAM you have will fit another board, DDR2 as I recall.
    Yes it has PCI slots.
    No onboard graphics though.
    6 SATA ports.
    It even has a slot for summet called a "floppy" :eek:

    If you have a running machine with a P4 and your going to upgrade, don't bother getting another old 775 board. Save your brass for the i7 build, what ever socket you choose.
