I was using the "Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant" to see if I could upgrade to Windows 8.  After doing so it found 4 Problems, 3 Don't worry me, but 1 does. It says "Your processor doesn't have NX turned on or might not support NX" So I checked my BIOS settings and found "XD" I don't know what it means but, Does this have something to do with "NX" or can I not make the Upgrade???

This should help!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NX_bit

"Intel markets the feature as the XD bit, for eXecute DisableAMD uses the name Enhanced Virus Protection. The ARM architecture refers to the feature as XN for eXecute Never; it was introduced in ARM v6.[1]"
