Windows 8 NOT compatible with my HP XW6200 workstations!!!

    You may wish to check the exact model of the CPUs in your XW6200.

    Some of the Socket 604 Xeons, like this one:

    ARK | Intel® Xeon® Processor 3.06 GHz, 512K Cache, 533 MHz FSB

    do not support the NX (what Intel calls Execute Disable) bit. I hope that's not the root of your problem.

    He can always get a couple of DP Xeon CPU's for a few dollars on eBay and replace the en of life part instead of the entire Workstation.
