Hi, Venomvender,

If your host system is Windows or IOS, Youcan follow the simpletwo steps below to get Android SDK r17 and make it work for HAXM:
1. Go to: to download r17 preview and install it per Google instruction
2.Start Eclipse, then Window--> Android SDK Manager --> Select Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager under Extras and install it. Then you are ready to go

If your host system is Linux ( e.g. Ubuntu), you can follow the steps described here:How to Start Intel Hardware-assisted Virtualization (hypervisor) on Linux to Speed-up Intel Android x86 Gingerbread Emulator

The system repair function will windows 7 keys remove any updates you have previously installed that are not included on the CD. Any windows Drivers will also be reverted to their original XP versions, as well as some settings (network & performance settings may sometimes be reset to their defaults). It may be necessary to reactivate your Windows XP as well. When finished, you will microsoft office 2007 keys have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update, because they are all replaced during repair.

you can install from the SDK manager in eclipse

Just for future reference to people landing on this forum:

The ADT version and the Android SDK version are two different things. ADT is the plugin for Eclipse that allows you to develop Android apps. It comes with the Android SDK Manager which you can use to download Android images.

The nomenclature can be a bit confusing, but Google uses the SDK version to actually mean the API Level of the Android image. See for further details. 

As of the date of this comment, Intel has provided x86-Android images for API Level 10 (Android 2.3.3) onwards. 

Lastly, bear in mind that Eclipse is no more the official IDE for Android development. If you are using Android Studio, do will not need the ADT. Android Studio comes with the Android SDK Manager which allows you to download all the Intel (x86) Android images you need (i.e API Level 10 onwards). To make use of Intel HAXM, you need to install the Intel HAXM driver (available in the Extras section of the Android SDK Manager). You may wish to check this article for a full list of requirements or this link for some troubleshooting tips. 

I hope that was helpful.
