This guide was helpful but not 100%. Android would not start in Workstation,rarather I got blackscreen with android-x86_64-8.1 dev/sda and blinking cursor. That’s all.
How I overcame it: in boot screen, hit the keyboard key “e”. Then change “quite” to “nomodeset xforcevesa”.
After that Android would run.
