    This will set our boot entry to load our patched kernel.

    This will set our boot entry to load our patched kernel.

7.  bcdedit /set {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} path \Windows\system32\winloadp.exe
    This will set our loader to be our patched loader.

8.  bcdedit /set {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} nointegritychecks 1
    This will disable verification of the loader.

9.  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} default {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}
    This will set our boot entry to be the default.

10. bcdedit /set {bootmgr} timeout 2
    This will set the timeout to be shorter.
    Note: you can change this timeout to whatever you like.

11. Restart the computer and enjoy.

== Removal ==
To remove the patch:
 * Run msconfig, click Boot, highlight the entry named "Windows (PAE Patched)", and click Delete.
 * Delete the files ntoskrnx.exe (or ntkrnlpx.exe) and winloadp.exe from C:\Windows\system32.

== Updates ==
When Windows Update installs new updates on your computer, you should run Step 3 again to ensure
that you have the latest version of the kernel.

== Compiling ==
To compile PatchPae2, you need to get Process Hacker and build it.
The directory structure should look like this:
 * ...\ProcessHacker2\lib\...
 * ...\ProcessHacker2\phlib\...
 * ...\src\PatchPae2.sln
