Re: XPS 400 Supports Windows 8 Install?

It works but it is NOT supported for windows 8.

If your CPU does not have Execute Disable Bit Security option in bios it will not install.

Not all processors have this feature.

All Pentium D Models seem to have the NX bit.

So the latest bios would be recommended BEFORE the upgrade.

VISTA will have issues before SP2

SP1 is required before SP2

Full install of SP1 and SP2 is recommended.
