This How to install android x86 on pc, laptop or notebook with a dual boot with windows operating systems like windows xp, windows 7 or windows 8.

It is not difficult to do that and need to understand a little of what is called the android x86. Android x86 is an android operating system which is used for the OS installed on your computer, laptop or notebook or virtual box so that android can be used on PC.

And I recommend to install android to install it separately on different partitions with windows operating system partition, so if windows installed on the first partition in the partition or drive C then Android installed on the second partition or drive D. In this tutorial i use android x86 RC2 tx2500 ISO you can use any android x86 like android x86 4.2 jellybean, and the latest one android x86 4.3 jellybean.

Here to make a partition from Drive C in windows 7:

1. Open windows explorer

3. Click the Disk management of Storage. To get started create a partition from an existing partition as the partition is to be created from Drive C partition, right-click the mouse and select Shrink volume.

Windows detected by grub can be seen at No. 9 on the first step.

4. Restart the computer and boot first to the CD or usb flash can be seen on the step 2 at No. 4.

### Android ###
menuentry "Android-x86 4.0-RC2" {
set root='(hd0,2)'
linux /android-4.0-RC2/kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=tx2500 acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode SRC=/android-4.0-RC2 vga=788
initrd /android-4.0-RC2/initrd.img

menuentry "Android-x86 4.0-RC2 (Debug mode)" {
set root='(hd0,2)'
linux /android-4.0-RC2/kernel root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=tx2500 acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode DEBUG=1 SRC=/android-4.0-RC2 vga=788
initrd /android-4.0-RC2/initrd.img
### END Android###

Every android x86 grub downloaded it will be different according to the android x86 ISO download

Note: The red texts replace with your android partition during installation, or as if android is installed in the partition third or Drive E :/ then replace (hd0, 2) with (hd0, 3), and if the partitions are only primary no logical drive so drive E as hd0,3 and if the partition or drive E is logical drive then Drive E is (hd0, 5) sorry if make wrong, replace the name eeepc with current android name that installed, can be viewed at the downloaded android ISO. And one more thing you could change the VGA = 788 (800x600) with a resolution corresponding to a computer or laptop in question, eg vga = 791 (1024x768) to view all modes VGA = ask, DPI = 16 can be replaced with DPI = 120 or DPI = 160 and there is a possibility without DPI can enter so if something happens ... do not have to use DPI = XX.

14. Save a notepad and restart the computer, if grub2 successfully installed then there are boot options menu when the computer is on, select boot to grub 2 boot menu and select android to choose the android OS.
15. Good luck.
