In the world of computing, everyone has come to love android. (I know I have). Android powers most of the world’s devices today: from smartphones, tablets, smart watches, cars, TVs and finally  to PCs and Mac.

This new innovation has been made possible by jide, the group behind the Android for PC revolution.

Remix OS

This new OS is called Remix OS. It’s quite easy to install the Remix OS. In this tutorial, we’ll show how it’s done on a Windows PC, running Windows 10. The Remix OS supports Windows versions from 7 upwards.

Download links are provided at the end of this post.

Procedure

It takes about 20 minutes to complete the whole installation (depending on your PC speed).
So the first step is to download the installation file from the official site here. You can either run it as a live installation on your USB drive or install it straight to your computer’s hard drive.

After downloading the installation file, extract it to a folder of your choice, then run the installation. It’s just as installing a normal Windows program. You can choose the drive to install it to as well.

It also creates an option for uninstalling the OS in case you decide to. The process is pretty easy. Once you are done installing it to your PC’s drive, just reboot it. When the PC boots, the Remix starts to configure itself, which takes sometime to complete. Just relax and wait for it to finish up. Afterwards, it will reboot again.

On the boot-up screen, you’ll be presented with the option to choose which OS to boot. In case you don’t get this option by default, you can press any of these keys (F9, F12). The actual key will depend on your computer model though. So do find out from your device’s website.

From here, you are almost done. Just follow the on-screen instructions to complete the whole setup process.

Another cool thing is that it supports file explorer, so you can hook up your external drive and view your media files straight away.

    I run it off a usb, I thought I installed it to my hard drive but when I rebooted, it didn’t show up.

      For the usb installation, you’ll have to manually choose a boot option by pressing either F9 or ESC key. The right key depends on your pc model. So you can try that.
