First of all you would have to download some pieces of software which you will use. The first piece of software we must install is Oracle VM VirtualBox, and the second piece of software you must download is the Android 4.2 JellyBean iso file

Steps to installing Android JellyBean

Now to start installing Jelly Bean you have to install VirtualBox on your computer then open it and select "new". Enter any name that you want to use, then after this select the type as Linux, and the version as "other linux". Upon completion of this, select next.

In the next dialogue box, enter the memory size of your choice. You should be mindful of the fact though, that Android JellyBean requires at least 512MB of memory to run, so you might want to use a little bit more but it is your choice of course. Once you have done this select next.

In the next dialogue box you will see a place where it will allow you to create a virtual hard drive. Select this option, then choose VDI. After this you can decide whether you want it to be fixed or dynamically allocated, according to your preferences of course. You should also take note here that I minimum of 1 GB is needed for installation.

The next step after this is to select a virtual device and then choose settings. A dialogue box will soon appear upon which you will go to storage and proceed to storage tree and proceed to empty. In the attributes part, choose the JellyBean iso file we downloaded earlier, then check Live CD/DVD. Proceed to clicking OK after this.

After doing this you need to start the virtual device and then choose the option on install Android x86 to hard drive.

On the screen after this, you want to choose where it says Create/Modfiy partitions. After this you want to then create a new primary bootable partition and then select where it says write. After the writing is complete you will then quit.

The next step is to install Android in sda and select type and ext3, choose yes for instaling grub.

After all this is done you then want to remove live iso from the virtual box and proceed to reboot. After this you can boot into Android JellyBean 4.2.2

If you have followed all the instructions properly, Android 4.2.2 should now be installed on your computer.

    Android x86 cannot run most of google play's apps and games. Hell it's true.
    Since my laptop doesn't has touchscreen, it's quite frustrated to navigate Android with mouse and keyboard. The mouse pointer keep disapearing on homescreen.
    I installed it yesterday and removed it after 10 minutes.

    Yeah this seems a bit weird without a touchscreen. I wonder if it worked if Google would try to launch an Android touchscreen experience for PCs like Windows 8. I don't like that either though...

    This seems like a perfect project for my old Lenovo netbook. Its got a resistive touch screen but a stylus should take care of that.

    If you're gonna install it in Virtualbox, why not just download Bluestacks, which is an Android emulator? It doesn't run too bad in a W8.1 Lenovo laptop which has touch screen.
