I would recommend using the BlueStacks if you don't rely on Android much.
Its simpler to install, doesn't need any partition changes, can run inside Windows, which means you get multitasking, Google Play built in, and recently updated to Android 4.0
I had installed bluestack in lenovo lynx in win8. It was working ok but very slow.. I think it won't go faster even if you install some other android emulator as long as it works insight Windows. So basically with atom we cant have playable android..
So I gave up my Android Tablet which was stuck on Android 2.3 and got myself a Lenovo Lynx K3011W tablet with Windows 8.1 on it.
My initial idea was to install Virtualbox on it and then install Android-x86 within a VM. I've done this successfully on my Windows 8 laptop.
So, after installing Android-x86 from the ISO here (android-x86-4.0-RC2-s103t.iso), the VM boots and lets me do things. However, the touch is way off. If I tap in the center of the screen, the tap registers in the center of the VM. If I tap about an inch off center, the tap registers about 1 1/2 inches off center. 2 inches = 4ish VM inches and so on.
My questions here are: Has anybody done this before? Should I use a different ISO? Should I give up?
