Hi can i please get some help, im trying to install Android x86 on usb, for my new hp laptop

i have followed the instructions on android x86.org

my issue is that after initial install it never boots again, it just gets stuck on android logo

i have seen a few posts such as this

"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"

but unsure how to do this

i have also seen this

"In boot menu select Installation - Install Android-x86 to harddisk In Choose Partition menu select Create/Modify partitions In Do you want to use GPT question select No cfdisk program will open Select New and select Primary as partition type, set size to 100 MB and select Beginning Select bootable. Now the Flags column should say Boot for the new paritition Select the free space and select New and select Primary as partition type, leave size as default to fill the remaining free space Select Write and type yes and press Enter Select Quit"

but im stuck in the fact when i click on click/modify on this i get cgdisk not cfdisk and its not as easy to use, i dont know why this is happening before i realised what to do i was accessing cfdisk but now its only cgdisk..

i have purchased 4 premium usb sticks incase issue was bad usb but its not the case and im just so frustrated

any help at all would really be appreciated

thanks in advance



Sometimes it takes a long time until you boot through the Android logo screen

You can try adding

nomodeset xfrocevesa

to the boot options according to this video.

The video is created by me as a part of our free video tutorials service on demand. That means anyone can ask us for instruction in a video and we will create the tutorial for free.

The instruions are as follows:

1. After starting android, select the first boot option and don't press enter.
2. Select E.
3. Select E again.
4. Now move the cursor left, by pressing the left key until you reach the word quiet.
5. Replace quiet with nomodeset xforcevesa.
6. Press enter.
7. Press B to boot this option.
8. Wait until android loads, which may take a long time in some cases.

Please use the Auto installation option, if this is the only OS on your laptop. Auto installation tutorial.

  • Please provide a video or screenshots to exactly what you are doing. Its becomes harder to debug an issue remotely if we don't know the details. – CFCBazar com Apr 21 at 23:17
  • ok so im really having issues, i have even tried a different rom, ie bliss os, but still same issues, i install the image to usb, i have used rufus, as well as various others incase that didnt work, i then boot to uefi, and click to install to a 2nd usb.. i have tried to modify the usb stick 1st with cfdisk but for some reason this takes me to cgdisk which is not the same – Paul Savage Apr 22 at 8:36
