Yeah, but I started with this tutorial. But if this will not work, I will try the HTG tutorial. But that is the SDK Emulator.

That tutorial is really good, but the guy seems to make the same mistake than I quite often make, taking screenshots where the focus / selection is in a wrong place. In this case the screenshot in step 5 shows VESA mode selected; the real selection to install Android is at the bottom.

So, in step 5 you have to select the last alternative, at the bottom. All previous 4 alternatives start Android in so called live mode where you use the OS directly from CD / ISO without installing it.

Thanks Kari. I figured that too and did what you say. Now I have something on my virtual disk ( appr. 300MBs). When I boot the virtual machine, I get the screen as below. But there is nothing I can do with it. I disabled mouse integration, got my mouse but the screen is non-operational.

That would be nice. But I cannot get off that screen that I showed above. I must be missing some key controls.

whs move the mouse to the lock icon click and drag up, also right-click on the mouse can also be used as back.

Yes.

When doing it with keyboard, you need first make the vm window active, then press Menu key two times to "open the lock" (I forgot this part, sorry!).

When finally there, go to Main Menu > Settings > Display > Screen Timeout, and set it to maximum (30 minutes) to avoid lock screen as much as possible.

Now if only they did have Honeycomb ported to PC... which i'm sure they're working on. Sure you could use that Emu from the AndroidSDK but that's really slow for me. Though i wouldn't mind using Gingerbread either from one of the links i posted but that is test version one.. but still nice, try it and see.
