Windows 8.1 RT working on ARM CPU. Windows 8.1 working on x86-64 CPU. The answer is no.

Yep. May as well ask if you can buy an iPad and install OS X on it so you can run software that isn't in the iOS app store. Sigh...

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
