I know this is too much to ask for now, but, still I am really interested to learn this. Installing Android on netbook/laptop that is.

It may take some more time before we actually see Android on Netbooks, and Laptops etc. But, there are some news here and there about people installing Android on their netbooks and nokia phones etc. I am still searching for an article that explains how to do this. ( if you guys know something of that kind, please leave a comment here )

I find tutorials on how to install Google Android SDK ( well it works only on Linux, or Apple’s OSX as of now !! ) but no luck on finding something about installing Android OS itself.

    I know this is kind of old for when the last post was, but I just found a website that supposedly has an x86 version of android that you can install on almost any netbook. http://www.android-x86.org/ I’m downloading it now, so I haven’t installed yet but it looks like others are having good success.

    • thanks ! but I already got Liveandroid working :D

    btw: VMWare is a program that allows you to run 2 or 3 OS’s in the same time, from Windows itself. I use it for running Windows and Linux in the same time, worked with android too. check it out.
