Now you can run Android 4.3 on virtualization system. In this section, I would like to share how to deploy Android 4.3 on Hyper-v. I used Windows 8.1 for testing. FYI, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 have Hyper-v feature. You just activate this feature.

Preparation

Firstly you need Android 4.3 with x86 platform target. You can download it on https://code.google.com/p/android-x86/downloads/list . You may need internet connection to connect your Android to the network

To deploy Android connection into Hyper-V, we will use Legacy Network. By default, Android will use DHCP to get IP Address.

Creating Virtual Machine on Hyper-V

Now you run Hyper-v. Create new VM

v1

Fill your VM name and its folder location

v2

Choose Generation 1 if you have Hyper-v on Windows 8 / 8.1

v3

Recommend to use 1024 MB memory

v4

Choose Not Connected. We will remove the default network device

v5

Recommend to use 32GB for storage.

v6

Choose Install an operating system later.

v7

 

v8

Click Finish button to finalize creating VM.

Now open your VM setting. Remove your current network adapter. Then, add Legacy Network Adapter. Select your virtual switch that supports internet connection.

v9

Don’t forget to attach Android 4.3 ISO on DVD drive Hyper-V.

 

Installation

Start your Android VM. You will obtain a dialog as below

p1

Choose Installation – Install Android-x86 to harddisk.

p2

Choose Create/Modify partitions

p3

Choose New. You can use all storage.

p4

Choose Bootable and then select Write.

System will format your storage. If finished, select Quit.

Then you will see a dialog as below.

p5

choose sda1

p6

Select ext3

p7

Click Yes button to install boot loader GRUB.

p8

Recommend to select Yes to install /system directory as read-write.

p9

Select Run Android.x86 if you want to run Android. You may want to reboot and then you will see a screenshot as below.

p10

 

Testing

After you start Android, you will obtain welcome form. Click Start button.

c1

Configure your time zone and other configuration.

For Wi-Fi, you skip this configuration because you will use LAN connection for internet access through Legacy Network Adapter.

c2

Now you can see your Android desktop

c3

Test to open Browser and fill any URL.

c4

You can access Google Play using your Google account.

c5

 

Shutdown

If you want to shutdown Android, you can swipe from up to down. Then, you will see a menu as below

s1

Choose POWER OFF
