I have my OS on the W of Android x86.
Runs well too.
x86_64 is 64 bit.
If you want something older go to older ones. You just have to be careful, with the older ones the Playstore doesn't work properly or the services.
But you can download it from I. Browser. Take Grub2win over Windows to start.
Works also with other Linux distro. USB card reader, partition gpt. Then you can create multiple partitions, multiple OS, I use micro SD card 64 GB UHS-I, is good and fast.

Go to Android-x86 page in the browser. Releases are available for download and installation. You must. create a partition the size of your data img plus the size of the ISO. Create a bootable Live USB stick with Rufus Boats from this. go to your partition Create ext...
format and don't install grub2. You start it with grub 2 Win from Windows. If you are on the x86 page, you can go to the left menu. Under Release you will find older Android versions for download. r stands for stable release rc stands for test release

Small tips, in Windows you can work with Paragon Linux File Manager.
This is listed as a trial version.
After the test phase, it continues to run throttled.
With this you can edit img in Windows Linux.
With older versions you can create a data in an ISO with Toporesize in Windows.
In the older Android x86 versions, the Playstore and services do not work. I always used the free app store Apk.pure. I'm happy with it. There you can also get apk, s for free and where they are not available in the playstore. You can download this app via browser. You can also register and update the Playstore later. It works like this for me.
You can create an ext4 data img in a Linux OS with the command in the terminal.

I have phoenix os boot with grub 2win over android kernel, if it doesn't say, read out parms and adjust below. open folder boot from img grub, you can read boot parms, also in the live stick. That worked for me. I also did Android that way.

Advantages for me from the Minix Win PC

The Minix Win PC can do much more, you get the LInux Distros installed, take Virtualbox in the Linux Distros,
I just tried it, what can you do with it in your Linux or Win system without having to boot? I just created a WinPE and tried to start, went.
Well, please see what there is for OS?

Being able to start virtually on a Windows computer like Minix Win PC is not that bad, believe the 64 bit ISO, s So either you install the Android x86_64 version or maybe virtual, if you also outsource your RAM, your 64 bit will run virtually OS quite good.
If you now have the RetroArch apk. can install.
You can also play well.
But the RetroArch apk is also available for Android.

Minix Win PC Linux 64bit

It could be that if you again create a swap file or Part. from Lnux system in the VM that this can run faster, think because this does not access Win and the VM but only the virtual memory of your VM Linux OS.
That could mean that this Linux system runs faster, because you only outsource within the Linux system in the VM?
What a shame you could install and specify when setting up the VM?
Didn't find anything in my VM.
Do you have to try this manually?

With the Minix Win PC you can boot almost anything, with the help of bootloader Grub2Win. Small tip, if you still have an older PC, you can still make a lot out of it even despite MBR. First adjust the swap, swap and double the remaining memory. The older versions you can find on Android-x86.org you can find under top left settings under Releases also support the MBR. So you can also have fun with an older Pc. For example, I like to work with Android 6.0, where I chose the x86 variant, which has been reliable to this day and is completely sufficient for me. So if you install on the W I recommend a GPT USB hard drive. Set several partitions and install your systems on it. You can then boot them from there with Grub2Win. When you connect the fixed paltte, it outputs it as HD0 to me at w in Gru2Win. Grub2Win is not so difficult to understand or adjust. I enjoy the Z64W I bought over 5 years ago. When I then take the Virtual Machine Attention Win 32Bit, but believe you can boot 64bit VM with it, adjust memory Please so that it is fast enough still made on it, you could start a lot of OS. I had tried to connect a 16 inch touchscreen, so with Android ORERO 8.1, i had no problems. The root if you like, you can turn off options in the developer, 7 times devices INfo on build tap one back and on developer options on root make the setting as you like.

Virtualbox with 4 GB RAM 64 bit version and under 4GB the 32 bit.
This is a short guide.
Believe in 32bit you can also start 64bit in the VM, but then you have to virtually double your RAM so that you can enjoy it

Please don't be angry, watch me over the next few days Write to you.
If something doesn't work, I suggested installing it on Oreo 8.1. You can download this from the x86 page at the top left under Release / old. Please note that rc stands for a test release and r for a stable one.

Hello again,

You can run android x86 in root or unroot mode.
In root mode you can also have a power menu. apk download if you want.
In the unroot it works for me via keyboard Ctrl Alt Del.
You can also switch it off in the root via the terminal emulator by command. su reboot, stop, maybe stop.
I think only the reboot command works in the terminal in unroot

Don't worry, I'll help, first create a Fat32 or Ext4 partition on USB, I primarily created 6144 MB. Rename android-x86. Provide the ISO via Explorer, create a folder android-8.1-r5 in partition, in win and copy initrd, ramdisk, install, systemsfs, transtbl, kernel into your partition folder.
In this folder you create a subfolder named data.
You can edit this in Win all with Paragon Linux File Manager Trial, this gives you access to Linux partitions in Win. Displays in Win Explorer. Mounted,
Now set up grub2Win and don't forget to install efi modules during installations.
Grub2win
Create boot entry Manage Boot. Add new Entry,
Type OS = android,
Title = What you want
Graphic = adapt to your monitor,
Select kernel = path to your USB partition, folder, kernel, (then it appears on the left, /android-8.1-r5/kernel)
Your start time = you can determine yourself, I have set it so that the system does not make any errors during reboot. Confirm everything with Apply. Activate Grub2win as the default bootloader and apply, ok and ok until it finally brings you a green overview of what you have created.
If everything is correct and you restart the minix logo comes the bloader there you select your created entry and enter. Then it would have to boot and an android logo should appear where a black shadow runs from left to right as long as it is, it is in operation and does something, should the shadow stop, it hangs. Off, new on minix. The setup can now take up to 30 minutes, then the Android start screen appears. Now reboot, again in Win, open the partition, folder again and delete the install file.
Then everything worked for me. Phoenix is the same. Only partition 16GB, folder PhoenixOS, Type OS PhoenixOS.
This system is based on android 7.1 Nougat.

You can read out the custom code Ubuntu in Win with Linux File Manager in the folder Ubuntu / boot.
For me it was folder / Ubuntu / vmlinuz (kernel) -....- generic -....,
In the newer Linx versions you only need to specify vmlinuz in the custom code
The second line is /Ubuntu(folder)/initrd.lz -...- generic -..., or .img.
Otherwise, follow the same steps as for Android-x86 and Grub2Win.
When setting up or installing on the internal memory, you should not have any other things plugged in via USB.
Another little tip, you can also have an mSD card in the device and expand it in drive C: integrate it as a folder in C :. if you then format them gpt, you can start several systems from this.

You can also try both of the custom code if it does not work with the UUUID to specify the partition as a drive.
Look in the partition list, there is, for example, Raspbian partition gpt8.
With the custom code you open the partition with root = / dev / sda8.
a is always the letter of the connected memory. So internal SSD or b, c for further USB connections.
When filling in under hd you also enter the partition where Raspbian is stored after the comma.
Bios simple example, (hd0,1)
Or EFI (hd0, gpt1).

You can also upgrade your J50C-4 to Win11 which will offer native Android emulation soon. It will be easier to manage ;)

Otherwise I can't afford that. When I was 10 I was able to do it, upgraded all old PCs at the time, so I had the keys reset if one didn't work with them. But, had the keys.
I have to rely on only pocket money to assemble my own PCs.
I'll get something bigger for Christmas.
I'm still working with the Z64W, unfortunately it's not enough for a new one.
Would like to work with the Cura 3D printing program now. Create 3D models with FreeCad, now a housing for PC expansion cards.
Can you tell me whether something is already integrated in Win 11?

And it also works from full installation (manual) (previous win 10 activation works).

Manual (from zero) installation:
If asked for a product key in the beginning of the installation you must insert (your win 10 key).
Thank you, you said that you should wait for the first updates, that there are small problems here and there.
So I hope the big update on Tuesdays remains as always, will try to upgrade on Wednesday because the key would have to be automatically adopted?

Got 11 on it, not that bad at all. With the virtual machine? Don't know, I think the VirtualBox is good. This does everything I need. What is the internal name of 11? Can you please help me a little? I want to test you too?

You ask for Android emulation ?
Just wait a little, it will be available for free in the Windows store soon (maybe next month)

Win11 Install, no tpm, Cpu, ram, secureboot check.

First look and experience the risks. But be careful, there are no security updates with this approach. That means instability of the system possible or maybe defective of the PC
You do this at your own risk with no guarantee.
It worked for me.

This




Well, it worked for me in the PE tools, for a long time. Microsoft, or AOMEI PE, or The Oven PESE also create and then move the boot.wim to another tool in the source folder. then create with MakeWinPEMedia or a USB image on a USB stick with your own boot? I've tried that too the wim to copy esd in 10 iso from 11 to 10, then done the setup, it worked for me?
