Windows 8 not installing

I have a Toshiba satellite L300 laptop. I want to upgrade it to Windows 8 release preview but when I start the installation it says PC CPU isn't compatible and at the internet I have read that Windows 8 needs NX feature to install. So can anybody tell me how to enable the NX feature.

 

PLEASE HELP ME . ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

Yes, CB, I did google the message and saw that explanation (among others). 

 

I've attached Microsoft's document on the subject.
