Want to run Android on your PC? 

The Android-x86 Project has ported Android to the x86 platform from ARM. Android-x86 can be installed on netbooks with supported hardware, but you can also install Android in VirtualBox.

Android can be run as just another virtual machine, like you would run a Windows or Linux virtual machine. This allows you to play with the Android interface and install apps in a full Android environment on your PC.

    STEPS For Installing Android-x86 4.4
     STEP 1 : 

    We’ll need to create a partition for the Android system. Select the Create/Modify partitions option and press Enter.

    STEP 2 :
     Select the New option with your arrow keys and press Enter to create a new partition in the free space.

    STEP 3 :
     Choose the Primary option and press Enter, then press Enter again to have the partition take up the entire size of the virtual disk you created.
    STEP 4 :

    Highlight the Bootable option and press Enter to make the partition bootable, then select the Write option and press Enter to write your changes to the virtual disk. You’ll have to type yes and press Enter to confirm writing the changes.

    STEP 5 :

    Activate the Quit option and you’ll go back to the Choose Partition screen.
    This time, you’ll see the partition you created at the top of the screen. Select the partition and press Enter to install Android to it.

    STEP 6 :

    Select the ext3 file system, and then select Yes to format the partition.

    STEP 7 :

    Choose Yes to install the GRUB bootloader, and then select Yes to install the /system directory as read-write.

    STEP 8 :
     **Once you’re done, you can remove the ISO file and reboot your virtual machine**
    STEP 1 (Android-x86 4.3 Is Installed) :

    Android should boot up like any other operating system would in your virtual machine. As with an Android smartphone or tablet, you’ll have to go through the setup process and optionally provide Google account details. Skip the Wi-Fi setup screen — Android will use your virtual machine’s standard Internet connection. 
     STEP 2 :
    If your mouse cursor doesn’t work, click the Machine menu and select the Disable Mouse Integration option. Click inside the virtual machine and you’ll see the mouse cursor. Press the host key displayed at the bottom-right corner of the virtual machine window (default key: Right Ctrl) to release the mouse cursor from the virtual machine.

    STEP 3 :

    You’ll boot into a live Android environment, complete with Google apps like Gmail, Maps, and the Play Store for installing other apps.
    Android is primarily designed for touch input, but it can also be used with a mouse and keyboard — this means that your computer’s mouse and keyboard can function as serviceable input devices. Just don’t try doing anything you need multi-touch for.
