    This MS Answers article might show your problem. Starting with Win 8 RP and forward, MS is enforcing a more stringent security requirement with CPU's. I suspect you are having issues with this requirement.

    To install Windows 8 Release Preview on your PC, the processor (CPU) must support the following features: Physical Address Extension (PAE), NX, and SSE2. Most CPUs have support for these features, so if you receive this error, it is likely because the NX feature is not enabled on your system.

    To resolve this error, follow manufacturer guidelines to enable NX (“No eXecute bit”), or the equivalent XD (“eXecute Disabled”) feature, within the BIOS security settings.
