Use Playstore and if not. Simply go to APKDownloader site and Download apps as APK and then install them.

seems like Grub bootloader is not installed. You must reinstall it and make sure you install Grub bootloader. Don’t skip this step or you won’t be able to dual boot.
Comment if you successfully do that.

Enable USB drive boot from BIOS settings. Alternatively, you can try installing EFI image file of Android-x86. Download it from Android-x86.org

Enable Unknown Sources in settings, then backup Apps in your phone. Transfer them using USB drive to Androidx86 Lollipop and install them.

Thank you for the nice tutorial. Installing Android x86 to PC was a wonderful experience. Though I have one major issue. My broadcom Wifi router does not seem to work. It shows a list of avialable devices and let me put in a password but beyond that it keeps on saying that it is connecting but never connects. Can you help me with that?

Seems like your system is running in UEFI mode which need to be changed or simply download Androidx86 4.4 EFI ISO file and then install it on your system. Good luck!!

Go to How to Install Android Remix OS on Windows Laptop or PC and install Remix OS. It will work like a charm. It’s a dedicated PC OS like Windows made for Desktops and laptops. Good luck!
