Disclaimer: I am not a tech expert. I'm not claiming I know the best way. Just a way that works lol.
Anyway, on AMD machines, runnning x86 versions of the AVD's won't work. But if you're like me then your computer won't allow you to use HAXM after enabling virtualization from the BIOS. Solution? Run and AVD that use an armeabi cpu instead of an x86. Again i'm not an expert so quality control wise. I don't know the benefits of using x86 over arm. It just worked for me. Let me know if that helped you.

You could always install Genymotion under plugins to get around this error.

Did you download HAXM from your SDK?

No problem Amin. Glad to help. But Yadian is right, Genymotion is much faster. But my answer was already pretty long. :angel:
