You shouldn't use pre-release version in production. Although developers are usually required to build an image from the source files, you can download and test the preview of Nougat for PC and VMware ISO below. This version is customized for installation on VMware Workstation or VMware Player but you can use it for PC too. This is preview build, so users may face several bugs or issues.

Video Tutorial: Android 7.0 Nougat Installation on PC

Remember, the software is based on Google's Android Open Source Project (AOSP) code and is still work in progress. The OS is similar to Remix OS which was first created in January this year. It's well optimized to run on PC and VMware.

If you want to build your own Android-x86 ISO, you can follow the instructions at Android-x86 website. 


  1. I'm getting blinking cursor at boot instead of Android Logo, and it hangs blinking forever. I tried both your Live ISO and installed to IDE hooked VMDK in VMWare 12.5, using Fedora 64-bit as Host. Would you suggest, how to fix, or what to look for? Same result with 3D acceleration On and Off.

    With earlier Android ISOs, some hang at the same Logo, and some pass it and boot OK, like 4.4 and CM13 with 3D Display Acceleration switched On in VMWare.

  2. unable to get the iso file. Folder is empty in google drive

    1. I checked the url, it still works without any problem.

  3. The google drive is empty :/

    1. I am able to download Android-x86 7.0 Nougat ISO on Google Drive
