Hello everyone,

I'm facing difficulties installing Android TV alongside my existing Windows 10 installation. I followed a YouTube tutorial and encountered some issues during the process. Here are the steps I followed:

  1. I downloaded the Android TV ISO file and used Rufus to create a bootable USB drive the file called "ATV-9-x86 Tech info Chrome 23.06.2022-k4.19.105-64bit.iso" from
  2. I formatted my USB drive and added the ISO file as a bootable option.
  3. In Windows 10 Disk Manager, I shrunk my C drive to create a 20 GB unallocated space and made it a new volume.
  4. I booted my PC from the USB drive and proceeded with the Android TV installation.
  5. During the installation, I selected the 20 GB volume for installation and chose the ext4 format, as suggested in the tutorial on youtube.
  6. After the installation completed and I chose to run Android TV, it booted successfully, but I encountered freezing issues during the initial setup after adding my Google account.
  7. When I rebooted the PC and tried to boot into Android TV again, it either showed an empty boot option or briefly appeared to boot before returning to the BIOS.
I have attempted reinstalling Android TV multiple times, but the freezing issue persists. I'm not sure if there's an issue with the partition conversion to ext4, as the installation process still recognizes it as sda5 instead of ext4.

My system specs are as follows:

  • Computer model: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. To be filled by O.E.M.
  • Operating system: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro (10.0, Build 19044)
  • Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) X4 740 Quad Core Processor
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. F2A55M-DS2
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Hard disk1: VendorCo ProductCode USB Device (29.1 GB/Removable Media): THE FLASH DRIVE USB I USED

  • Hard disk3: SAMSUNG HD502HI ATA Device (465.8 GB/Fixed hard disk media): ANOTHER HARD DISK (HDD) DYNAMIC WHICH CANT SHRINK
  • Graphics card: Radeon RX 580 Series (4 GB)

I would appreciate any help or guidance in resolving this issue. Thank you in advance!
