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...

You certainly can not. An ARM processor is very different from an x86 processor. Go for a Surface Pro. They're fantastic.
