I think that's because you have an EFI system.

I do. Is there any way around this? I want to run Android on my laptop so bad, without the use of an emulator.

This installer doesn't support EFI. I suggest you take a look at Android-IA at

https://01.org/android-ia/downloads

which has a UEFI specific installer (try the 4.2.2 ia3). I haven't tried it yet, because I am waiting for an OTG adapter, but if you do have one, and you have a Windows recovery drive ready, I suggest you give it a shot.

Sorry! I confused this thread with a Dell Venue 8 Pro thread (that's what I have).

I know I'm late to the party, but I wanted to:

* Say thanks so much for this; the default grub loader has issues with dual-booting the 2 OS's; this made my life instantly easier

* Inform everyone reading that the latest 4.4 RC1 works without issues as well, not just the one mentioned in the OP
