Unless you have an ARM-based desktop, you need an emulator. There is one included in the Android SDK (for Windows, Linux, etc.). Can you re-state your question? – david6 Nov 7 '12 at 7:58

You want to check out Android x86 project. They have documentation and installation instruction for installing an Android on a regular laptop/desktop.

thanks Ryan . Can it's possible to make iso image for booting from your android image ? .Just like Android x86. – i_max 77 Nov 7 '12 at 8:29
@i_max 77: build instruction for android x86, there is also build instruction for making isos. You can't use your own image, at least not without rebasing the patches that android x86 are maintaining into your image and recompiling everything. – Lie Ryan Nov 7 '12 at 8:49
This would require any applications to be recompiled (or be available in source). Looks interesting .. – david6 Nov 7 '12 at 9:06
