One of the big problems here is secure boot, on window rt systems it is usually locked to windows rt and nothing else, it might prevent you from being able to load a proper OS like windows 8 or 8.1. Can you still tke this device back to the shop you bought it from? Explain that at the time of sale you were lead to believe it was windows 8.1 and got it home to find it was rt and they might be more willing to refund it or swap it for something capable of running a proper operating system, if you tell them you would happily "refund" it by swapping it for a windows 8.1 device and paying in cash the difference in price they'll probably be also more willing to "refund/swap" as they would still be getting some sort of sale to you.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
