    Is there a way to bypass this check, in order to istall win 8.1 to older pc's?

    I'm especially interested on installing Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro, because is lighter than regular Windows 8.1 pro (correct me if I'm wrong)

    says "It seems that for win8.1; MS has changed the location of PAE check in winload.exe, so for win8.1, the patch won't work for CPU without PAE."
    so I think current metods for Windows 8 wont work for Windows 8.1
