Pretty sure it is possible but you won't get security updates without tweaking stuff - the artificial block is stupid especially considering 8.1 is still in mainstream support. Though 7's lack of support for USB 3.0 and driver such things may be a problem if you don't either slipstream drivers into the ISO or use another computer and put drivers on a CD/DVD.

I take no responsibility if the patch breaks Windows.
