Adding Android-x86 to grub menu

Approximately one and half years ago I wrote a post about installing Android x86 on PC. You may find here the post: https://mandeep7.wordpress.com/2014/09/22/installing-android-on-laptoppc/

I used grub-customizer to manage my grub. Here is how to add a new entry to show android in the grub menu. Add a new entry.

See more about grub-customizer in the following link.

Add following information as shown in the right hand side of the image.

android-grub

Just in case, if you are looking to copy paste the source lines then:

insmod ext4
set root='(hd0,8)’
search –no-floppy –fs-uuid –set d8c2350c-037b-4e56-8c9f-b52a6807eef7
linux /android-4.4-RC1/kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=android_x86 video=-16 SRC=/android-4.4-RC1
drivemap -s (hd0) ${root}
chainloader +1
initrd /android-4.4-RC1/initrd.img

 

The lines written above highly depends upon the installation of your android os like partition name etc. that’s why I recommended to read the previous post to relate things. Ask if something is unclear.
