(Make sure you click SAVE STATE when closing Android, and be sure to unmount the ISO after you are done testing your installation) If you need to start over again, do so with determination. This might take a couple tries getting your storage and memory settings just right. Once you have everything just right, you can use Android on your Desktop!
