    Windows 10 does not install over Windows 7 SP1

    I have been trying to upgrade to Windows 10 but the system refuses to upgrade as it says "CPU isn't supported".

    I am using Pentium Dual Core CPU E5700 @ 34.oo Ghz

    What may be wrong?

    Your CPU seems to comply with the minimum requirements - Try enabling Execute disable bit in bios. Not sure exactly where it is, but check under security.

    Execute disable bit in bios was ENABLED when I tried the upgrade.
