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:

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.


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.
