I'm trying to install Android x86 on virtual machine in VirtualBox 6.0.

The image I've downloaded is android-x86_64-8.1-r2.iso from android-x86.org

The installation process I've followed is similar to this video

But when I'm reaching GRUB boot option selection and choose Android-x86 8.1-r2, it stops working and hangs on underscore before "Android" logo, which never shows to me.

Final result of installation for now is underscore screen

I've tried this and this fix, but it didn't work. Also, there's a post regarding similar issue on Android Enthusiasts, but it never was answered.

Stack, what do?

1 Answer 1


Set VM Settings > Display > Graphics Controller to VBoxVGA. Unless done so, Android x86 won't launch.
