How to Install Android Lollipop on pc without Android SDK

Till now the only way to install Android Lollipop on pc was the download the full android sdk and then download Lollipop package and it was also very hard to use the Android SDK.But don't worry the Android x86 has released the Android Lollipop ISO image,but it is still in Alpa Testing so things won't go perfectly.Anyway here is the method to install it.

Custom Pc reminds its readers that it will not be held liable for any damage to device during or after Android-x86 software installation. Users are advised to proceed at their own risk.
  1. Download the Android-x86 ISO
  2. USB flash drive or a bootable CD/DVD drive
  3. Ensure there is sufficiently free hard disk space on the computer/laptop on which you want to install Android-x86 OS:
Steps to Install Android 4.4 KitKat on Your PC
  • Download the Android-x86 Lollipop ISO and UNetbootin
  • Make a bootable USB Drive with Unetbootin and the ISO image you downloaded earlier. Just click on the Diskimage button (see screenshot below) and select the ISO file you downloaded in step 1.
  • Reboot the computer with USB drive as source by tweaking a couple of settings in system BIOS. However, latest computers often default to USB drive at boot time, whenever it's available.
  • In the ensuing pop-up menu, select Install Android x86 to hard disk.
  • Choose the partition where you wish to install Android x86. If you chose to use a new partition, don't forget to format it right away.
  • Allow the install process to continue (Choose Yes or confirm to continue), as you are prompted to give permissions at various stages during GRUB Bootloader installation. Do not click cancel at any stage, else the system bootROM might get corrupted.
  • Now another prompt will ask your permission to perform system /r/w (read/write operations). Just click Yes to continue.
  • If you prefer to install ICS or earlier versions before KitKat, then you get another prompt toinstall virtual SD card. You may use 1800 MB of hard drive space as virtual SD card for flashing firmware. It is the maximum space supported.
  • Once the Android-x86 software is completely installed, reboot the computer.
As this installation supports multiboot setup, you can switch between Windows
or Android at boot time, according to your taste.
A quick search in Google proves you that CusPc is the only place where a 
guide about installing Android Lollipop in Pc without SDK has been posted.
