    Hi, I want to test windows 8.1 on my old computer.I have successfully installed and run windows 8 consumer preview on it but windows 8 final version was not installed on this machine as its processor does not support PAE, NX, and SSE2 .

    Does 8.1 preview require PAE or its like 8 preview which could be install on PAE non supported processor

    I cannot find any specific answer on Microsoft site.

    Thanks
