    You can use EasyBCD to add a new startup entry for android.

    Install GRUB, it is the easiest way, and you can easily add more OS to the boot list.

    It tells me that my laptop is not an ASUS product, then my laptop reboots.

    I forgot
    This would be false. The easiest way would be to use EasyBCD as Dter ic suggested as then you can't screw anything up. Mess up with GRUB and you have to go through a quite a few steps just to boot into Windows, let alone having to install grub again which can be a pain.

    Just in case you still can't get it to run on your laptop you can run Android x86 in virtualbox as described here
