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!

  • Hi friend,i would like to say,i am facing same,exact issue. Do you have any update? did you solve it? I would like to say you that i am able to use lineage-x86 1v4,13(from android-x86 release page) Jun 10 at 5:47

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

  • As I mentioned back then .. it wasn't a virtual machine! It is Android flashed to an actual tablet hardware device ;)

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?
