Install android kitkat x86 in virtualbox windows or linux ubuntu

After I made a post about how to install a dual boot android kitkat x86 and windows  if there is still the possibility of confusion between choosing a partition or grub settings to boot android entry or, for that I give one other alternative to install android x86 kitkat with virtualbox, I think install android PC / laptop with a virtual box more better because it's easier and does not create a new partition on the hard drive.

By install android kitkat x86 in virtualbox can be done in windows operating system like windows xp, windows 7 and windows 8 as well as linux ubuntu as long as the operating system already installed virtualbox.

The tips below I did install it on Linux ubuntu virtualbox for virtualbox in windows but also I think the same way as below.

And for those want to directly install a dual boot android x86 kitkat with windows or ubuntu can see here.

For using ubuntu after install android on it then can be added grub android setting open the terminal typing "sudo gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg" without quotes and place it at the very bottom.

Android kitkat latest version of the android operating system with new features and we can use on virtualbox, with virtualbox the installation and use easier way, even if the internet will be directly connected to the internet if internet PC is connected, for that I suggest instead we install android on virtualbox is better  than dual boot, with virtualbox android kitkat then can we enlarge the view of the virtualbox, view by clicking the tabs at the top left virtulabox and click full screen.
