he showed how to install android x86 on qemukvm virgil . somewhat his guide worked on android x86 but with nomodeset but in normal mode my textures looks weird glitch , nodeset vesa equal no 3d performance, ok so here is my problem using his guide i cant boot phoenix os br or phoenix os rog

You may need to fiddle in the settings and enable things like hardware acceleration and the like. VirtualBox has been steadily going downhill though, I recommend KVM personally.Despite the steps, Android requires powerful hardware acceleration, it's been mandatory as of Android 4 - that's why virtual machines like VirtualBox struggle. KVM might net you a better result (VirtManager) but it's best to install Android on real hardware. Games like pubg require hardware acceleration that virtual machines (particularly VirtualBox and VMWare) don't really provide consistently. It's best to install on real hardware or use a VM like KVM that uses hardware acceleration.
KVM is a virtual machine but it uses your hardware passthrough style so it's about as native feeling as you can get. Anything else like VirtualBox or VMWare is going to use software to emulate and least some stuff, though the commercial version of VMWare may be better in this regard, but I'm not entirely sure I haven't used VMWare in years to be honest.

VirtManager is a nice graphical front-end to KVM.

KVM is more like the code is directly executed on physical cpu rather than on virtual cpu it's just assisted by kernel and has near to native cpu performance but virgl is laggy as hell no matter how much gpu horsepower you have KVM can be only used in integrated and discrete gpu like setup with gpu passthrough

what i did is mounted qemu qcow2 img, and replaced android 9 system,kernel etc with phoenix os system etc , woila worked, there was problem like inside os it was picking swiftshader so i changed kernel took time to find good one. and found one 4.9.214 it worked finally picked up mesa as virgl. , virt-manager is good gui software
