  • Thanks for the write-up!
    On your last video, there is some voodoo at the 3:03 mark.
    What the heck happens?
    That is literally where I get stuck.
    You say to reboot Android L, yet you tell the virtual machine to run Android-x86.

    When I run Android-x86, I get the same screen you get.
    It then gets stuck there.
    Then you do your voodoo wavey-screen thing, and ????????
    Do you force reboot the machine?
    When I force reboot it, it boots back into the Android-x86 Live & Installation CD menu.

    Any idea?

  • When I’m selecting installation, there is scrolling text, and at the end is error: “Kernel panic – not syncing: attempted to kill the idle task! Rebooting in 60 seconds..”

    • Make sure you have created Virtual machine properly, I did it many times but never faced such type of problem, If the problem of syncing there are some problem with hardware, so try after integrating Mouse with Virtual machine
