    Installing Android into Hard Disk on PC

    Greetings.
    I downloaded android-x86 4.2-20130228.iso, burnt to DVD disk, boot the disk, wanted to try the live section,
    but got stuck at
    " detecting android-x86 .......found at /dev/sr0; root@x86:/# " waited for minutes there was no further action.

    Please advise what did I do wrong.

    Thank you. Regards

    Hi Kong,

    I ran into the same problem. From what I observed while installing on my chinese winpad with Atom 1.6GHz, the processor may be a little too slow when running both the host and virtual os. Sometimes I get to "detecting android-x86...." and then times out after a while. Other virtualbox found the dev/sr0 as you have mentioned but the app times out again shortly. I was able to only install it successfully once.

    I believe our problem may be in the time out period allowed by Virtualbox in detecting the android. I believe we may have to change the timeout settings. But I don't know how right now. We may have to change the settings in the iso image configuration file. Currently, I don't know how. Hope someone can help.
