Not possible. Your machine's processor only supports the RT edition, it's an ARM processor.

As McKnife already said, the surface with RT can't run any normal Windows version, only Windows RT. You would need the "Surface Pro" (Which comes with Windows 8.x Pro and uses an intel x86_64 Processor). On the pro you could replace Windows 8.x Pro with Windows 8.x Enterprise.
