How install Android OS using VMware player on PC....

Infact there are many methods to run android on pc like using bluestacks and other tools,

I would suggest  to preffer this method which is standard one and easy 

follow the steps:

1.Download and install VMware Player. This is VMware’s entry-level free virtualization product for end users.

you can download it here:  VM player


2.Download the android-x86-vm-iso file and extract it somewhere on your computer.

3. Create a New Virtual Machine. Set the “Installer disc image file” to the Android x86 ISO file you just 

downloaded:



4. Configure a name and location to save the disk image. You can set this to 2.5GB (or more depending 

upon your usage)

  -  The Android OS partitions take about 256MB of disk space.( you can choose ram memory more if u 

want)

     -  The maximum size for a simulated SD card is 2GB.

5. Once you’ve completed the startup wizard, it should immediately boot to a GRUB menu. Select the 

“Installation” link to start this process.



6. Create/Modify partitions:

     - Use the arrows keys to select [New]

     - Then, choose [Primary] to create the first disk partition.

     - Accept the default (maximum) and hit Enter.

     - Choose [Bootable] to add the “Boot” flag to the partition.

     - Select [Write] and confirm your choice to complete partition setup.




7. Quit the Partition Editor.

8. Back in the “Choose Partition” window, there should be an option to install Android to “sda1 Linux”. 

Select this and choose OK.

9. Select ext3 in the “Choose filesystem” window. Confirm when it asks you if you’d like to format the 

drive, then confirm again when it asks you to install the GRUB boot loader.

10. You probably want to leave the /system drive as read-only. Accept the default and select No when it 

asks you if you’d like to set this drive as read-write.

11. You’ll have an opportunity, optionally, to Create a fake SD card. Do this, then Reboot the Virtual 

Machine.

12. In a few moments, you’ll see a prompt asking which Android (“regular” or Debug mode) to boot.

Choose the default first-choice, or wait a few moments for it to auto-select the default.

13. Lastly, remember to click the I Finished Installing button. When it asks you about “Installing VMWare 

Tools”, choose Never Reminder Me (recommended).
