So I just got a new laptop running windows 8.1 and was super excited to play LoL. Got the same prblem you're having, the patcher kernel wouldn't ever load. So I tried a couple things and figured out a possible solution.

1. Run the launcher in compatibility mode
2. Open Task Manager, go to details and find the pando media booster and launcher
3. Right click pando and end task
4. Right click the launcher and set priority to "High"
5. Update/launch and play League
