Thanks for your reply.

Sorry but the link you provided was the method for android version lower then 4.0 and my android version is 4.4
So, I googled a bit and found this page.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2703270

I followed this method. Everything worked fine as, Android x86 showed in grub.
But when I tried to boot into android x86 it kept on showing

Code:
Detecting android x86.............................................
Just the "......." kept on increasing and nothing happened.

Hope you find a solution for this too.

backtrack 5 r3

you are aware that this is a DEAD and long UNSUPPORTED operating system

you can not install any software on it - nothing is around any more
you can NOT upgrade it to ubuntu 12
that will KILL all the "tools"
the BT forums had a BIG NASTY UNFRIENDLY WARNING !!!!! ON THAT !!!!


it is based on Ubuntu 10
from the year 2010 !

it is 6 years out of date

Yeah, John VV is very right. If you go on the Backtrack homepage, they specifically tell you it is not maintained anymore and they recommend you check out Kali Linux.

About the booting problem, I think I have reached my limit as I don't use Windows and its filesystems at all and I don't know much about Android. Maybe someone else can advise you further.

Nevertheless, I have a last advice: try to read the grub configuration file from the Android x86 installation (the config file the Android grub used). There might be useful lines of code in there that you can add to your menuentry.

All the best.
