EliteBook 8560w - Bios F.63 Rev.A compatibility with Windows 8.1

HP Recommended
EliteBook 8560w
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I'm currently useing Windows 7 on EliteBook 8560w with Bios upgraded to the latest version, Bios F.63 Rev. A, and would like to change the OS to WIndows 8.1 since MSFT will discontinue the tech support for Windows 7.

However, based on the Bios release note, the latest Bios version supporting Windows 8.1 is F.50 Rev. A (all the Bios versions beyond F.50 Rev. A support up to Windows 8 based on the release notes) which is the older version, and each of the newer Bios version are not downgradable once you install it.

May I know if there will be a new Bios udpate to F.63 Rev. A to make it compatible with Windows 8.1, or there will be any known issue if using Windows 8.1 on Bios F.63 Rev. A?
