    I have not tried installing Win8 in anything older than an x58...

    could be many things, that board is DDR2, that could be it..

    Also could be your CPU may not support PAE, NX, and SSE2 as these are requirements...

    Here is the full requirement; Windows 8 system requirements - Microsoft Windows

    I don't see SSE2 listed as an available feature for your CPU, that could be it.
