  1. I installed androidx86 6.0 and also grub2 but, I configure andoid with my account and all works, but when I restart the pc, only win10 start and I can’t see the dual boot. How can I do to see it at each restart?

        1. Try windows switch “Windows key +R” then type “msconfig” Now goto the boot option then simply change the time out in seconds !! I recommend choose it to 20 seconds . Then choose the Apply button then ok button which will be located just below. Then it will ask you to restart!! then choose “restart ” Then it will be showing you the boot menu !!

        i have the same problem. but when i went into the boot menu it still doesnt show up as grub it just has my usb and my hard drive.

  2. Hi please explain “Enter the size in megabytes like if you want to make 7GB portion then insert 1768MB”.

    I thought 1024MB = 1GB. How do you get 7GB from 1768MB? I’m confused.

  8. I installed Android X86 OS on PC successfully. First time it is working fine and I restarted the OS it was working fine. Next day I tried to open the Android X86 OS it was not opened. It was continuesly loading. When I installed android X86 OS in pendrive it was working fine. If I want to work on Android X86 I need plug the pendrive in the same system. If I remove the pendrive it will not work. If I change/put that pendrive into another system the installed apps are not visible. Is any solution to solve this problem or I want to change any settings in Android X8 OS.
