Clone Windows PC or Android Device

I want to clone an Android phone and re-purpose it as well as a Windows 7 Laptop.

Ideally, I would like to bring either up as if I were on the device, from my Windows 8 computer if I ever need to pull anything from them.  Is this possible?

I don't see that any of the Android CPUs are Intel or Windows compatible.

Perhaps consider getting a Windows 10 Phone for what you want. You would have Windows 10, Office 2016 and potentially all your documents.

I put needed documents in Drop Box and access such documents on my iPhone, But I would have to switch platforms to do what you want (that is, switch to Windows 10 Phone).
Most android devices include a micro sdhc card slot, or something similar, where you can insert such a card. Just save all the data on that card, and you should also be able to read it on your Windows PC. But as has been mentioned, you can't run the Android from your device on a PC, as PC's run using x32 CPU's, and android devices on ARM based CPU's, which are completely different and not compatible.

what do you mean by "I want to clone an Android phone and re-purpose it"... if you want to make a smartphone into a notebook-like device, just connect it to a monitor via MHL cable...

actually, you can install app like "ES file explorer" and when your smartphone is connected to the same wifi network as your windows 8 computer, you can transfer files among the smartphone and win 8 computer via FTP.
