Using android-x86-4.4-r3.iso, I created a virtual machine in VMware Workstation 11.0.0 on Mac OS X. I just clicked Create virtual machine, chose my Android ISO, and just hit Next repeatedly until finished (just like I do to create Windows VMs).

I'm not a master at VMware. What did I do wrong in there? I ran into trouble, as in this picture:

I wait, but it doesn't change. If I am supposed to enter a command, I don't know what command. Can anybody help me?


You need to follow the instructions. Specifically:

You have to change your virtual disk type to be IDE because the default type in VMware is SCSI, and [the] Android-x86 kernel is not configured to support SCSI. You can follow these steps:

  • Create a virtual machine.
  • Edit [the] virtual machine settings after the virtual machine [is] created.
  • Choose the hard disk and remove it.
  • Add a hard disk to create a new virtual disk, then you can choose IDE as your virtual disk type.
  • When finished, you can install android-x86 normally.
  • Thanks you so lot, Matthew Read. It really helpful for me. It work! – fastestsuperman Apr 7 '16 at 20:55
