    I'm currently on Windows 7 and my PC has 2GB RAM and Intel Core i3 2100. I had received the Get Windows 10 notification and my PC , according to them met the requirements. I downloaded the Windows 10 launch ISO, and on running, it says that my PC can't run Windows 10, because my processor doesn't support NX.
    While I understand that my PC is old and not cutting edge, but if it really couldn't run Windows 10, why ask me to reserve it? It's totally heartbreaking. Or is it a bug within the installer? I need your help.

    Impossible.. Windows 10 should work on your i3 2100 with no problem, if that CPU can handle W7, then W10 too.

    Maybe that NX security function is disable on your BIOS settings, a little guide on how to enable it.

    Thanks a lot! Though there are no BIOS settings to toggle it, but after rebooting my PC and running the ISO,I didn't have a single problem! It has gone past the checking part and is now checking for updates after accepting the license agreement!
