I've tried a few iso versions but non seem to give me the option to boot into android after install, I get a bcdedit error saying this operation is not allowed.

Any idea's?
Note : I've tried installing from disc but android won't recognize my hard drive partitions "can't make changes either", I'm using windows 7 64bit HP Pavilion G

Hi @ExtremeGTX,

Your work is really precious.. I think your app is the easiest way to install Android on Windows installed PCs. Today i installed "android-x86-4.4-r3" on my PC over "Windows 10" with your "Android Easy Installer v1.2" and it seems working.. I haven't tested all the features and the components one by one but at least i could able to install Android without issues.

I think lots of people wait for your UEFI supported Android Installer app. If you could do it we will really appreciate it. I have an Acer Iconia W4-820 tablet with UEFI system and i tried many different methods that i could find on the net, but i couldn't able to install Android on my tablet till now. It always give error.. So, my request is if you are still developing on this area and if you have enough time, making your app compatible with UEFI, would be a perfect work. And i think if you could achieve this project, your app will be trendtopic app in development sites and it will be a really useful app for lots of desperate tablet owners that are not able to install Android on their tablet yet.

Thanks in advance.. And good luck during your developements..

Thanks for your support and your comment, appreciate this
Actually i started working on UEFI support, the goal of this app to install Android-x86 without corrupting device boot process.

The problem about UEFI support can be divided into 2 points:
1. Android-x86 team add EFI Linux Kernel (Done, Thanks to the team)
2. Chainload Android from Windows boot manager (Complex to solve)

Till now what i have reached is making UEFI call grub instead of windows boot manager, and user will get two options (Windows, Android).
This solution is working but it is not safe and grub may fail to boot on some devices, maybe we can have new installer release (for UEFI Devices) after a lot of testing and it will be for specific devices which have been tested and has no issues at all.

Unfortunately, I don't have access to devices like Surface 2/3 or Acer Iconia. just testing on my UEFI PC and this is not sufficient test.



Thanks

Good luck, and please inform us on every new progress you have succeeded.. Because lots of tablet owners that want to install Android on Windows, wait something easy like your app impatiently..

Running windows 10 64-bit. Legacy boot mode. Dell Inspiron 3521 Intel HD Graphics 4000.
Successfully installed.
Selected Android from the list (other option was windows 10)
Shows some lists
an underscore keeps blinking
android doesnt boot up
when i pressed enter, it appeared like i'm running shell/terminal command with root privileges
it was something like this: root@android x86: # (Don't remember properly)
uninstalled

re-installed on another drive with lesser data space.
same thing happened.

uninstalled

now my problem is that first of all, it didnt work (maybe because of windows 10)
second, now i am still getting android OS boot options along with windows 10

my first preference is to run android on my lappy
second is to remove the several faulty android OS boot options

PLEASE HELP ME. WOULD LOVE TO SEE ANDROID WORK INDEPENDENTLY ON PC

I think the GPU Boot options isn't correctly set.
when you get that black screen (GRUB Bootloader) press 'e' to edit the boot command-line then do the following:
Try add or delete one or both of the following option to kernel command line:
nomodeset
xforcevesa

Example:
Before modification
Code:
kernel /Android/kernel root=/dev/ram0 USE_SQUASHFS=0 quiet androidboot.hardware=eeepc acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode SRC=/Android
After should be
Code:
kernel /Android/kernel root=/dev/ram0 USE_SQUASHFS=0 quiet androidboot.hardware=eeepc acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode SRC=/Android nomodeset xforcevesa
Uninstall:
open Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Android

if you still have the boot option, do the following:
open cmd as admin
type: bcdedit.exe
you will see identifier of Android Boot Entry (something like: {xxxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxx})
now type: bcdedit /delete {xxxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxx}

I tried the following configurations:
without both
with only nomodeset
with only xforcevesa
with both was the default config i found, which i edited to the above three
nothing happened. android didnt boot up. when i removed nomodeset, the screen resolution was increased and text appeared in full resolution

what should i do now?

i used the 5.1 rc iso

should i switch to 4.0 eeepc?
