    To modify the mask to enable or disable the NX/XD CPU bit:

    Navigate to the CPUID Mask option on the virtual machine Options tab (see steps above, if necessary).
    Select Hide the NX flag from guest to disable the CPUcompatibility check for the selected virtual machine,or Expose the NX flag to guest to enable this CPU compatibility check for the selected virtual machine.
    Click OK to save the change.

    D. is correct
