Please see: microsoft http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/onedrive-app-faq
Scroll down to see list of faq's about one drive.."can I deintall it"
It appears that the key to One Drive is the way you log into 8.1...with your microsoft account or as a local account...
The key to inhibiting oneDrive is to log in locally

I guess I should give you this link as well for backing up your registry before you do anything in case you get confused with that registry directory and make the wrong edit..
Here is a tutorial on the that as well:

tcands I am not on a windows 8.1 machine and have never done this myself..and would normally test before post...just as a disclaimer..
good luck with it
