Windows 8.1: Will It Work With A Q9650 CPU?

Based on this we feel that enforcing NX presence is a good thing to do since it results in better malware defenses. Based on CP telemetry we felt adding the block to setup was warranted to respect people’s time. You can do better for the money. Got out my Win98, Windows XP, and Windows 7 CD's. check my blog

That's a very poor ROI on an OS ($13.33 per year, plus taxes). Windows 8 requires the NX capabilities of modern CPUs.

EDIT: FYI I am also triple booting this computer. Boot from the media that you created. But, Microsoft changed the requirements for 64 Bit Windows 8.1 and is making 8.1 a mandatory upgrade if users that purchased Windows 8.0 want to continue receiving updates past October 2015. Greets!

It lives in a case with 8 drive bays, and runs several multibooting systems - from Windows XP to 10, and some Linux distributions without problems, and generally with good speed. They were upgrades, which had me stuck at 32-bit. From what I can see most issues have been with out dated drivers, BIOS, and Windows Updates not up to date. Further he says that Microsoft may contact a few of those who reported this issue if further info is needed as it may be a bug and has to be corrected before RTM.

The reason may not be valid, but it is good enough. ...and if it gets enough press then expect Microsoft to backtrack and restore compatibility in the next release, just as Microsoft’s Bill Fill explained in detail about this error in The Answers Forum.

  1. Repair option?
  2. Not enough time has passed to allow it to sink in and see the real impact, if any, this new requirement has.
  3. If you dont want windows 10, well windows 8.1 devices can be found if you look hard enough "When you know what a man loves, you know what can kill him"

This would be replacing an old emachines Athlon XP. So I'll find some on eBay when I have the cash to spare.

Windows 8.1 has new ways for you to personalize your PC and includes a wave of awesome new apps and services.

Thank you M$, you're so generous! History tends to repeat itself, and with Microsoft, that's as close to a 100% guarantee as it gets. Several functions may not work. In the last month I rebuilt an older PC that has a Core 2 Duo and made the somewhat arbitrary decision to upgrade it from XP to Win7 instead of Win8.

For those that say it would have been a better time to introduce this change at the start of Windows 8, I seriously doubt it. The feature allows the CPU to help guard the system from attacks by malicious software.

Overall, it was a relatively high hassle and this on a machine that had been clean installed with Win 8 (not migrated) and had only a handful of small apps installed. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/NeGuW1JITSpFECYTZnSHdTW (Updated 03/11/2017) Back to top #34 Guest_GNULINUX_* Guest_GNULINUX_* Guests OFFLINE Posted 18 January 2016 - 07:14 AM I hear youcat1092, you're right, not every Linux (or Windows) forum If you're not already familiar with forums, watch our Welcome Guide to get started.

I wasted a few minutes hunting the App Store for the 8.1 option. But I've got the same signature on the dedicated Linux Peppermint forum and I can assure you that they are a friendly bunch of people.
