Android on IdeaCentre Stick 300?

Is it possible to install Android and/or Linux on the Stick 300? Ideally without removing Windows 10.

Run one of the Android emulators for Windows? Here's a recent rundown:

Thanks for the link. I would prefer, if possible, to run it natively. The Intel stick can do this. In fact the Lenovo stick did not work properly until I installed the Intel drivers. Now it’s very good. I don’t know if a special bios is needed or what. Thought someone might have done this already.

Yes, the Intel Stick BIOS is quite different from the Lenovo one, & has a setting for booting Android.

 

However, the 29GB of SSD space is barely enough for Windows 10.  Dual booting Android seems more like a bragging point than something useful, in my opinion.

Hi

 

I know that Android can run on x86, but I haven't tried any prepared image to install Android on regular PCs.

 

Have you tried something like Android - x86 ?

I think I will download the ISO and try to see if I can boot it/Install it on the Stick, just for fun Smiley Happy
