I am using VM box 4.2.4 r81684 under windows 7 Pro Processor setting is for NX bit to be set. Running Microsofts "Windows 8 upgrade assistant" on W7 host shows the NX bit is set i.e. turned on in the bios. The VM box has windows 7 Premium installed which is working ok. Running Microsofts "Windows 8 upgrade assistant" in the guest box under W7 Premium shows that NX bit is not set. This means that when I try to install windows 8 Pro it fails after loading all the stuff from dvd and the key is accepted. windows 8 will not install unless the NX bit is set.
