Windows 7: Windows 10 CPU not supported (Windows 7)

Windows 10 CPU not supported (Windows 7)

So I just opened the Get Windows 10 tab on my Alienware M11x R3 laptop with Windows 7 and it says there is an issue that requires my attention. I clicked it and it said my CPU is not supported... I checked it just a week or two ago and it didn't say that. The last scan was done on the 6/13. My CPU is a i5 2537M and should be plenty new. I ran some programs and command prompts and my CPU support all the required technology (SSE2, NX, etc.) So I'm not sure what's going on and I want to be sure the install works tomorrow for Windows 10.

Well I'm able to install Windows 10 now, but no my CPU is apparently not supported despite it being fairly new and supporting all the needed technologies...

No Windows Aero Supported
I have an older laptop with XP that I plan to install Windows 7 on. I ran the Windows Advisor and the only thing lacking is the Aero Support. I don't use this PC all that much and am not keen on buying a new graphics card. What will it be like without Aero? Is it really bad or just like XP was?...
