Finally I could boot live images of Android Kitkat and Lollipop from a USB stick on my Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 8 (Z3770). Display and touchscreen work fine, but no wifi, bt, display rotate and battery charge indication. The Kitkat image runs very smooth and can be found here. It was developed for T100TA by Chih-Wei Huang, a chief developer at Android-x86. In the same thread Chih-Wei explains how to install Android. The Lollipop image is not running as smooth, probably due to lacking open GL support. I also found it in the Android-x86 discussion group here. It was built by György Pejović based on kernel 3.18 work of Chih-Wei Huang. Interested developers can hopefully get drivers to work for wifi etc. I installed a Vmware Lubuntu 14.04 for Android-x86 and Android-ia development and can hopefully contribute in the near future. Both Androids didn't work on my Voyo A1 Mini tablet (Z3735F). Kernel loads fine but when graphics mode is switched to show the splash screen the display flickers and nothing can be seen.

Hi, congratulation for this.

First of all excuse my English, I am french.

Maybe could you help me?
I have the Lenovo TP 8 - Windows 8 64 bits (4go ram, Z3795). I want to run android on my tablet. I try to install android IA for intel baytrail 64bits (i follow the tutorial on intel website) but it did not work... the installation failed with this error : error: fatal : bootable/iago/installer/partionner... and it says that it's impossible to install android on my disk cause there is no space, but it's wrong.

my skills in this area are very very limited.

Could you explain to me how must i do, with a little (and simple) turtorial if you can (Bios, usb, ...)

Thanks a lot for your time
