Pentum D 820

Trying to install windows 8.1 and windows 10 on dell system with Pentium D 820. Intel product specs indicates that this cpu will run windows 8.1 or windows 10 because it supports Execute Disable Bit.

When installing either of the two operating systems it says my cpu is not supported.

As for Windows® 10, only 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors (Ivy Bridge) and above are validated to work with that OS, more information can be https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/processors/000006105.html here.

 

 

I hope this information helps.
