I have a very similar problem to e.g. here.

I installed Android-x86 on a partition on my Acer Aspire Switch 10E next to Windows.

I added Grub as trusted boot option in the UEFI and let Secure Boot enabled.

Using this I can completely boot and reboot into e.g. Android x86 version 8.1-R2

But the problem is: in this version my Realtek RTL8723BS is not supported -> No WiFi/Bluetooth!

So I worked my way back to older versions (I need at least Android 6.0). Using CM 14.1-R2 and Androidx86 7.1-R2 I have a strange behavior:

Right after the installation if I select "Run Android" everything works fine, it boots normal, WiFi/Bluetooth everything fine!

But I am not able in any way getting it to run again after a reboot. It is forever stuck on a black screen with only displaying a fix (not blinking)


I already searched for two days and tried a lot of parameters and settings in the Grub entry like nomodeset, xforcevesa etc ... nothing worked so far.

I also tried both 32bit and 64bit versions (the device is 64bit) but it made no difference.

I don't understand what I am doing wrong or why it boots all fine the first time if not going for the reboot but directly to the Run Android option. So I guess it can not be due to unsupported hardware since the system basically works ... I just can not boot into it anymore after shutting down / reboot.

Does anyone have a solution for that?

Note: I am not speaking about a Virtual Machine here!

I found disabling 3D acceleration and setting the graphic controller to VBoxVGA solves the issue.


when you change the internal frame where the UEFI firmware settings to the EFI framework setting change the boot order you have to make a small partition for grub go back and change it back otherwise it won't boot the second time

    Sorry I fear I didn't fully understand what you mean. Could you explain step by step what I have to do?
