    the Standard version should work on legacy PC's while the Pro version has the same CPU/Bios requirements like Windows8.
    so for the Pro version you need PAE/NX SSE2.

    Im not really familiar with WES licensing (in otherwords I am too lazy to look it up) in order to know if WES8 or WES(in general) will support KMS activation and if so how to find the WES8 KMS Client Keys. I can only guess that since KMS in general is gear for corp networks where you would have a legit kms server to manage os licensing and WES in general has a wide array of flexibility that KMS might not be doable. But then again a POS style WES device is generally on single WAN style network. So who knows. Either way I cant wait to play with it to build some mini os's for special purposes.

    Tito,

    Only the toolkit key is perpetual.
    The actual activation key is limited to 180 days.

    Cody needs a permanent activation key.

    It seems this isn't the case, because I tried to install Standard on an old laptop, and I got the same 0x0000005D error that occurred when I tried to install regular Windows 8.

    Did you try to install Office 2013 ?
    In my case it does not work.

    Not necessarily, because the keys for WES7 in MTK are Volume:BA, and permanently activate if installed during setup.

    But KMS might be an option.
