Some processors do, and some don't -- you'll need to post the CPU model for someone to tell you.

You should be able to find it on one of the BIOS screens (f2 at powerup).

Yes, that processor does have execute disable bit technology.  Check the BIOS setup -- others have reported using Windows 8 on the m1530.  F2 at powerup.

In my Latitude D820 the setting is under Security > CPU XD Support.
