Just fyi: see .png attached in post#5here. See: http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=08754

the installer still doesn't work with GPT partition table; ... This release contains two files - one is the traditional ISO file that can be booted on devices with legacy BIOS, the other is the EFI image that can be used on more modern devices with UEFI firmware... android-x86-4.4-r2.iso (388MB), android-x86-4.4-r2.img (392MB).

This sounds like voltage values to me, as 12V usually refers to 12 volts. Therefore it sounds like you are talking about the power supply and NOT the hard drive.

How about you tell us how many hard drives does your PC have??

Do you have any special partition requirements?
If not, then Jjanel among others have already said what you need to do.

that is ok, I mean we will gladly help you to go further. But without explaining what did you really try, what's happened we can hardly say anything.
Asking and asking but without answering is not the most efficient way to progress.

ok, let's have a last try
http://www.android-x86.org/documents/installhowto
just try to go step by step:
Code:
We have implemented an easy installer to install Android-x86 to a harddisk. The supported filesystems are

    ext3
    ext2
    ntfs
    fat32
I suggest you to use ext4, although it is not listed here, but offered by installer, if you have no any reason to select another one.
Code:
How to create a bootable USB stick for Android-x86?

    Use the USB image
    Download the compressed USB image, uncompress and dump it to a USB stick. On a Linux host, you can use the command

        # zcat android-x86-1.6-r2_usb.img.gz | dd of=/dev/sdc 

    where /dev/sdc is the device name of the target USB disk. However, some broken BIOS may fail to boot such a USB disk.
    Create a bootable USB stick by iso
    There are some open source tools that can convert an iso into a bootable USB disk, say
        Linux Live USB Creator ( LiLi ) -- officially support Android-x86
        UNetbootin -- see the demo video.
Which one did you choose? What did you download at all? (exactly)

.iso for bios; .img for efi; UN-partitioning sda with dd (#11)

>"which one to download"[?] Probably the .iso
but you had it (or .img?) running in post#5, yes?
It depends on the model of the computer/PC.
IF newer (>2010) 'EFI/UEFI', the .img
else if older BIOS, then the .iso
(I don't have/know EFI/.img; my PC is year 2008)

Here is your Win7 properties (from your prior Debian thread),
but I can't tell whether BIOS mbr or uefi.
(I'm guessing that you installed Fedora, after trying Debian)

How did you get the .png in post#5?
(posting such screenshots *is a good idea*, to clarify things!)
It seemed to be working properly there;
the next step was what I posted in #19:
select Create/Modify, to run cfdisk (cgdisk runs if GPT)
to delete the 3 old sda partitions, and make one new one, ext4

You can press Alt+F2, to get a # prompt; (Alt+F1 to return)
there you can erase partition table! See attached screenshot.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M count=1
fdisk -l

In #5, did you boot a http://wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_flash_drive ?
Was the Android-x86-4.4-r2 you downloaded, a .iso or .img ?
(how did you write the usb_stick? rufus? .iso or .img?)

Is "SDB2 ISO9660 STORAGE" in post#12 the usb_stick? ("sdb1 iso9660" in #8)

Create a virtual machine.
Edit virtual machine settings after the virtual machine created.
Choose the hard disk and remove it.
Add a hard disk to create a new virtual disk, then you can choose IDE as your virtual disk type.
When finished, you can install android-x86 normally.
what is virtual machine and how to install install it?

http://VirtualBox.org (but it needs a working 'host' OS like Win7)

Can you boot your USBstick, to a screen like in #5?
Then, you can do Ctrl+F2 to get a # prompt (to do dd as in #39)

Does your PC have 'EFI'? There are some pictures here:
http://howtogeek.com/howto/22665/run...ook-or-desktop
https://www.howtogeek.com/wp-content...30-650x488.jpg

Your screenshot in #5 came from here:
http://askvg.com/tip-how-to-install-...-your-computer
How far did you get, on your PC?

Your 3rd android, size 397,312 is the .iso (the 2nd, 401,760 is the .img, for EFI)
Have you written the android-x86_64-6.0-r1 (from here?) to the USBstick and tried it?

I guess you would need a -camera- to post a screenshot of your PC installing android.
