Phoenix OS is an operating system made for PC’s running Windows and we’re going to Dual Boot it.
Most of the Legacy devices are incapable of running recent Windows versions like Windows 8/8.1 and 10, So Organizations like Phoenix OS developed an operating system which is capable of running in Legacy and slower devices and offer Almost every feature that Windows can do by offering Dual Boot Phoenix OS Android Installation that can run in x86 architecture
Dual Boot Phoenix OS : What Advantages we get?
- Phoenix OS consumes less ram when compared to most Windows Distributions like Windows 8/8.1/10.
- When Android can run smoothly in Mobile Devices then it can outrun in PC’s with obvious Higher Configuration.
- Phoenix OS is designed in x86 Architecture so it can run smoothly on any Intel based computers, .
- Most users don’t need all the features what a Windows or Mac can do. They just need a Good snappy device to perform their daily tasks like checking Mails, Watching YouTube Videos, and some Browsing which is the main point these days
- That’s why Google is Targeting those people by Launching Chromebooks which is a great success from my perspective. So having an Android Phone can perform these tasks then why not have an Android that runs in a PC
- The best part of this tutorial is you need not sacrifice your good old slow Windows Operating System. Dual Boot Phoenix OS runs parallel without any Problem.
- Very good choice for laptops having low hard drive space. Recently market is flooded with less storage cheap laptops offering hard disk space around 32-64 gigs. They’re comprised of SSD’s which are quite faster than normal HDD’s but in some cases, dual boot Phoenix OS helps us a lot.

- To Create the Partition you have to open ” Disk Management ” in Control Panel or you can use ” WIN + X” and Select Disk Management from the Pop Under Dialog Box.

Run on on Hard drive very fast but on USB very slow freezing all time .Kodi run very good (on HD only) can’t run on USB
As USB devices like Flash Drives are comparatively slow when compared to hard disk present in our PC. That’s the lag has happened. Nice to hear from you. Support the site my following to Social Networks and subscribing to YouTube Channel.

I have installed windows and ubuntu on my machine with ubuntu as the boot loader. If I install phoenix os on myy harddisk without creating a new partition, will it replace the current boot loader or the ubuntu bootloader will add it to its list of operating systems?
No it won’t replace your Bootloader. It’ll will on top of windows. So you’ll presented with Phoenix OS after you select windows as your Boot option
Hi, I installed Phoenix OS but when I get in to the Phoenix OS boot menu I only see windows and another system I installed (Remix), but no Phoenix. I installed each system on a separate partition. So to be clear I can boot to the Phoenix boot menu, but the menu does not show the system itself.
Hope anyone can help me out.
When you Installed Remix, it had modified you Boot options to display Remix on top of Windows, So it might have affected the Phoenix OS.
Deleted everything. And did the Phoenix install again. Still got the same problem. When in Phoenix boot menu i pressed on ‘e’ while selecting the remix os . Then i got to a page command prompt like page with code (i think i was in the Grub). Changed all the ‘RemixOS’ into ‘PhoenixOS’ and Phoenix OS started booting and worked fine. But when rebooting i had the same problem and had to change it all again. Do you have any idea how i can change it permanently?
Post your query in Phoenix OS forums. They might fix your issue.
BTW Thanks for helping me!!!
Can it be used offline?
Yes, Of course. You don’t need an Internet connection to run an operating system on your computer
