Introduction: Android OS on Your PC!

An Android phone is cool. It's like an iphone but without the "i" and the "phone" aside from the apple logo placed at the back. But did you know that you can have an Android phone installed in your laptop? Yup.

II. Download the Application VMware( for Windows) or VMware Fusion( for Mac)
from: http://www.vmware.com or from any other torrent sites
This application will serve you as your virtual desktop!! 

Step 2: Install the Application

Same goes with the Application VMware.

Step 3: Setting Up the Android.iso File

 You'll now be asked to locate the .iso file.

Click Continue.

Step 5:

Choose "Other" for both the Operating System and Version.

Then click Continue.

Lastly, click Finish!!!

Step 4: Booting Up Your Android OS

Your Android is about to start!!! 

Select "Live CD- Run Android-x86 without installation (HDPI)"

It worked, and rather well at that. However, it wouldn't boot on my old pentium 3 desktop...

Is there a way to directly write/copy files from the Android VM to the PC?

You can also use a program called UNetbootin http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/22665/run-android-on-your-netbook-or-desktop/ which will allow you to install a live flashdrive version to boot from, from which you may run it as a live environment or install.
