Acer Switch 10 - How to boot Android?

I've wanted to boot and (later) install Android on my Acer Switch.

At first I thought that I can use Images from Android On Intel but it doesn't boot, because the Switch 10 has an 32 bit efi (Intel only supports 64 bit).

Then I've found this thread on xda-developers:

So I prepared an Ubuntu Stick, but before I've copied the Androidx86 image to it, I wanted to test whether it boots Ubuntu.

And of course, I can boot Ubuntu so it's clear, that the Stick is 32bit efi compatible prepared.

Now I've copied all files from the "android-x86-4.4-r1.iso" to the new created "android"-folder and edited the grub as given.

Then I boot up the Acer Switch, selected the Android and it seems working. But it crashes to the command line as it was expected.

Now I have to type in "exit", but there is the issue. The Acer Keyboard Dock is not recognized by the command line.

After that I've rebooted and retry the same way but with an connected USB Keyboard. Same too. It''s still not recognized.

So, Is anyone there, who got it, to boot Androidx86 on the Acer Switch 10?

In addition. I've also changed the grub setting by deleting the command "DEBUG=1". Then Android boots up to "Detecting Android ...", some other logs and to the blinking curser, but nothing more. It freezes before the Android Boot logo would appear.
