    In the coming days there will be Dual boot Devices in which you can get both Windows OS and Android OS.
    If you want to install Android applications on your PC as in your mobile, you can use Android Emulator softwares like Bluestacks Android Emulator for PC, YouWave, Andy Emulator, ManyMo, GenyMotion etc.

    The other way to install Android OS is with VirtualBox,
    You need to download latest Android OS available officially in the link http://www.android-x86.org/download
    and Virtualbox software https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
    Create a new virtual machine, OS type is Linux and version is Linux 2.6
    Attach the downloaded Android 4.4 ISO to virtual machine's CD/DVD drive. attach ISO. Once the KitKat Android has been successfully installed on the Windows PC, remove the ISO from CD/DVD drive of virtual machine and restart virtual machine.
    The process may be available in youtube please check it.

    It is possible to download and run Android OS on your laptop. Please read and follow below steps to install Android OS on your system. Please not that you have not mentioned which operating system your laptop is running on so here I give you guide about installing Android OS 4.3 on Windows 8 PC. Because Windows 8 is latest.

    First of all download latest version of virtual box from below mention link.
    https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

    After you download Virtual Box download android operating system iso file from below mention link.
    https://code.google.com/p/android-x86/downloads/list

    Now open Virtual Box on your laptop and create new Virtual Machine. Below are the configuration for your Virtual Machine
    Operating System Type : Linux

    Select Storage and Create New Hard disk
    Browse and install ISO file.

    Start Virtual Machine which will boot from attached ISO.
    Select Create/Modify Partition
    Press New >>Primary>>Bootable>>Write>>Yes
    This will create new partition and save new partition now Press Quit.

    It may be your private issues, but I couldn't understand why would you want to install Android OS on your laptop. If you need to run android applications, you can simply use bluestack application for windows.

    You can see the installation method of Bluestack on windows on this link:

    Though it does not make any practical sense to run Android OS on your Windows, here are a couple of ways to do it.

    1. BlueStacks
    The application will not run the full Android OS on your system, but it can be used to run Android apps on your computer or laptop. It also allows you to download apps from Play Store. BlueStacks is the most widely used and reliable method to run Android apps on your device.

    2. Official Android Emulator<
    The Emulator is part of Android SDK. It is used to run Android Operating system on your PC. It is used by the Android developers to test their apps. But the emulator is little slow and cannot be used for day to day operations.
    Download Android SDK, open SDK manager program and select tools. Follow instructions to create Android Virtual Device.

    3. Android-x86
    This is a community project aimed at porting Android to x-86. Right now it is supported only on a few specific devices. Please note that this is an experimental project. It may not be stable on your device.

    Live....and Let Live!
