Win8 support for non-PAE, non-NX - alternative Setup from \Source\

Generic question - officially Win8 requires CPU's with SSE2, PAE, and NX.


Some Pentium M's were manufactured with SSE2, but without PAE or NX.


I had heard there was an alternative Setup.exe in \Source\ that bypassed the checking step in Setup.  I do not know if this was in Preview or in RTM.


For real legacy stuff, has anyone else heard of this, and once installed (if it gets installed) does Win8 work or are there other "hacks" that need to be made?
