I have downloaded Android-x86 4.4 RC1 and tested it.Performance is ok. Gallery is not working and without file manager. I can read data from external usb storage but I can't install android apps.It didn't test Gallery app properly before built Android-x86 4.4 RC1.It supported Intel GMA500 and displayed good graphics

Any suggestion to install android apps from unknown sources on android-x86 4.4 RC1? Or I should use ADB to install it again...???

There are several ways:

* just install a file manager from Google Play.

* just copy the apk to /data/app/. But
if the apk contains native libs, you need to reboot.

* You can also use adb in android-x86 directly.
Just run the Terminal Emulator, su, and type
adb install path_to_the_apk

* put the apk in a website and download it from the browser.

Please take note not all .apk will work when it build in android-x86 iso.
That why gallery didnt work on android-x86 4.4 rc1.But it installed it manually.
It will work fine.

The usually reason is the apk contains native libs
that are not installed.

What gallery?
If you meant the built-in Gallery3D (com.android.gallery3d),
it works, of course, provided HW OpenGL ES is supported
on your device.
(Check your OpenGL driver in Settings -> About tablet)

HW OpenGL is not supported on any PowerVR chip.

Ah I see, did not know those were PowerVR chips. In that case, not going to bother playing around with the Acer AO751. Still have my other AOA150 which works great. Thanks
