    • Specs of the system used. (Full details in Signature)

    Intel Core i7 3610QM

    Import the Appliance by either hitting “CTRL+I” or by going to File>Import Appliance





    Browse for the “.ova” file you just downloaded and proceed





    Configure the cores and RAM you want to dedicate to VM





    And proceed to next i.e. Import it





    It’ll take few seconds to complete





    After completion of the Importing process, just get in the VM settings > Network and under Adapter 1 tab add “Host-Only Adapter” (from drop-down menu)
    And Start VM





    You’ll be treated by this Welcome screen. Just configure it and follow on-screen instruction

    Well what's the practical use of running Android OS on PC?
    A year ago I installed Android ICS on PC. It runs nicely through boot but my pavilion laptop use heat up while running. May be because of radeon graphics didn't optimize well.
    Results fan of the laptop broke and I've call for the replacement. Thanks to hp accidental damage warranty.

    For development purpose programmers will use APK developing kit to code and should run on some ARM device.

    Have you ever tried the android emulator provided by Google in sdk?
    Read documentation on androvm.org
    It may help you.
