Android Question Emulator

I am having a heck of a time getting the emulator to work. The screen comes up with just the word Android on the "screen" and it seems to hang there. I used to use Genymotion but I downloaded the latest version and I can't seem to run it with the Oracle VirtualBox. I would really prefer not to have to use the VirtualBox and quite honestly, I Like the emulator built into B4A.

Can someone suggest what I am doing wrong?

The Android (SDK) emulator works great with B4A 5.8 and 6.0 provided you use hardware acceleration (HAXM driver) Intel Atom (x86) and your computer supports Intel hardware acceleration. B4A apps will load in two seconds and debugs just fine. You can of course choose from a variety of screen sizes and resolutions. If your computer is too old it may not support HAXM so you will need to get a real Android device.
