    Here's the exact story:

    I was trying to install the preview on my HP pavilion a110n. First, I found a hard drive with 40 GB of storage. Then I created a bootable disk. After the Windows 10 logo, the 0x0000005D error comes up. I have no way to check for execute disable because Windows XP is still asking for a product key that won't admit that it's right. I tried both the key on the box and the key on the computer. When I use a different XP HDD, it throws the extra ram error.
    EDIT: Celeron D processor.

    first of all Unlike Windows Vista and 7, Windows 8 (as from build 8400) is not compatible with all models of the Pentium 4 processor.

    This is due to the fact that Windows 8 requires a processor compatible with the following functions: SSE2, PAE and NX bit. All Pentium 4 are compatible with SSE2 and EAP: the problem may come from the NX bit. •First, make sure your Pentium 4 model supports the NX bit: for sockets 423 or 478 processors, then it won't work (in most cases).
    •For sockets 775 processors, it can be compatible. If the CPU supports NX-bit, you can install Windows 8 32-bit or 64-bit (it depends on the models!).
    •Also make sure that NX bit is not disabled in the BIOS (if present).

    I guess it applies to Windows 10 as well.

    I am installing 32 bit on a Celeron D processor, not a Pentium. Any help?
