I am trying to install Android from the Android-x86 project on my PC. I successfully built an ISO from source, and I can boot from it. The Live CD comes up without any issues. My problem only shows up after installing Android on my computer.
Grub comes up, allows me to select Android, and starts the android boot process, but then I get stuck on the "android" logo animation screen.
GPT for partitioning, made one primary partition, and formatted it with
My problems sound very similar to this question, but the OP is in a Virtual Machine. Is there some way that I need to "Accelerate 3D Graphics" or something like that?
It seems especially bizarre to me that it is booting successfully from the "live" system, but stops working when I install it...
Looking into this some more, I found a workaround. If I use
exfat instead of
ext4 when formatting the partition, it works. There is a catch: it becomes a read-only filesystem. The x86 installer helps you set up another space for user data, so this just might be usable... I am still open for answers on why
ext4 will not boot though.
