How to run Windows XP on Android

Getting Started:

Congratulations. So you want to run Windows XP on your Android device. The process is pretty easy and only takes around 30 minutes, but the time may vary depending on your computer speed.  To get started, you will need to have a .iso format of Windows XP.  If you have your windows' disc, then you could use programs such as ISOBurner to make an ISO from it.  After you have that all figured out, continue to download the rest of the items below.

What you'll need

  • Bootable .iso copy of Windows XP
  • Qemu Manager for you PC
  • Bochs for Android
  • Blank Image Disk (This is how you create it:
    1. Open up Bochs for PC and run bximage.exe -> you can find bximage here C:/Program Files/bochs/ | depends on where you have installed it.
    2. Create a Image with following: hd, flat, 1500, c.img
    hd: It is the format of your boot disk. | fd will create a bootable floppy disk image. For some odd reasons you can use with win 3.11 or something like that.
    flat: It means that it has a fixed size.
    1500: It is the size of your Image. | you need around 1,5 gb disk space, because the installation of winxp, even you edit it with nlite, wont let you use lower disks -.- , i am trying to solve that problem.
    c.img: It is the name of your Image. | choose the name like you want to, but dont forget to edit the bochsrc.txt, else it wont start.

    notice: Maybe you have to run bximage.exe as Admin.
