[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Remix OS is the first fully functional Android Operating System specially made for computer users. It brings several useful features of Android in a more pc-friendly way, delivering you the best of both Android and Windows.

It was released on 12th January 2016 and got popular from the Day 1. Indeed, it is super awesome.

But Dual Booting it along with Windows was a major issue, as the OS was released as a portable Operating System that got stored in a USB Flash Drive and you needed to plug in the Flash Drive every time you want to boot to Android. For more details, see Install Remix OS on your PC with USB Flash Drive.

Another Amazing Android OS for Computers was released soon after Remix OS, known as Phoenix OS, with stunning Android UI.

Well, Finally, we got a useful trick to Dual Boot Remix OS along with your Windows on your Computer.

And this supports all 64 bit computers, whether it is UEFI or Legacy. So you can taste its features while not compromising your Windows.

There are many advantages of this method:

  1. No need to use USB Flash Drive to boot Remix OS. Your Remix OS will stay right on your computer.
  2. Your Windows OS will remain untouched. None of your files on C Drive will be harmed. All your internal storage media will also remain intact.
  3. On every boot, you can choose which home you want to enter: Either Windows or Remix. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. No need to change your BIOS mode from UEFI to Legacy and vice versa. This method will work for all 64-bit computers. (32-bit support coming soon)

Remix OS Screenshots:

Here are some screenshots from Remix OS on my Laptop. The picture quality isn’t much good mainly because of two reasons:

  1. I couldn’t take Screenshots inside Android.
  2. I took photos from my Mobile by pointing it towards the Laptop. Lack of Good Camera! Anyways it should do the job! The brightness is dimmer in screenshots.

Enough of Screenshots! Now let’sย begin the steps to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows.

Determine your BIOS Mode:

Well, there is a very natural step to determine your BIOS Mode, and we are giving it below only for those who don’t know how to check BIOS Mode.

Those who knows how to do that may skip this step and follow the next steps.

Here we begin:

On your keyboard, Windows Key + R and the Run Command Dialog Box will Open.

Enter this run command and click OK: msinfo32

Tutorial: Install Remix OS on your PC [Windows / MAC]

The system information Dialog Box will open. Click on Top Left System Summary and then search for the option: BIOS Mode on the right.

You will find either your BIOS Mode is UEFI or Legacy.

Tutorial: Download Remix OS iso File on your PC: EFI / Legacy

Based on that, we are going to follow the steps below.

So make sure you are fully aware of the BIOS mode you are in.

Disable Secure Boot:

You need to Disable Secure Boot before installing Remix OS else it will not Boot.

What is Secure Boot?

Secure Boot is a feature made by Microsoft on your windows that will allow booting of only Windows OS signed by Microsoft and Reject other Operating Systems.

What are the advantages and the disadvantages?

Well, the advantage is to protect you from hacking software that may try to install a foreign operating system and hijack your computer. Secure Boot checks for Microsoft Signature before booting each time and makes sure you are in Windows before booting.

The disadvantage, on the other hand, is that it will also not let you Dual Boot your computer with any other Operating System. So, you need to disable it.

How to Disable Secure Boot?

A step by step guide to do that is available here. Follow it and you can quickly disable secure boot.

Create a New Drive Partition on your computer:

Now we will create a New Drive Partition on our computer where we can install our Remix Operating System.

The drive should be of 20GB Space at least.

Again, for the “Techy” guys, this step is very easy. But for the non-techy guys, this can be painful, so we are discussing it too. If you know it, just skip this step too.

First Right Click on Windows Button and Click Disk Management. The Disk Management Dialog Box will load.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Now select any existing drive having free space over 20GB. Leave out C Drive. Choose from the Rest.

Right Click on any Drive and Click Shrink Volume. You can see this dialog box (Refer to the Picture Below), and it will ask you space to Shrink.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Choose the space as 20000 MB and Click Shrink.

You will find a blank Unallocated Space of Memory 19.5 GB. That is the volume we shrank.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Now Right Click on that Space in Blank and Click New Simple Volume. The New Simple Volume Wizard will load.

Click Next.ย It will ask for the simple volume size. Keep it as it is. Click Next.

Now it will ask you to Assign a Drive letter. Do that and click Next.

Now it will ask you to Format Partition. Choose the File type as NTFS. Choose Allocation Unit Size as Default. Click Next.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Finally, Click Finish to Complete making your New Partition inside your computer where we are going to Install our Remix OS.

Now your Drive Partition is created.

Steps to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows:

First Download Remix OS from here. There are two versions, one for UEFI, and other for Legacy, choose the one you need.

GOOD NEWS: Remix OS v2.0 is released on 2nd February 2016 and now it supports 32 bit devices too. Download Remix OS v2.0 from here.

Now use 7zip Software and Open the Remix OS Img File. You can find the following Files inside.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Extract those files somewhere safely. We are going to need them later.

Now, Download Android x86 Installer Exe File:

For UEFI Bios Mode:ย XDA Thread | Direct Download Link

For Legacy Bios Mode:ย Direct Download Link

Next, Download this Android ISO File:ย Direct Download Link

Now, Run the Android x86 Exe File. The software will ask you to choose Android Image, Target Drive, and Data Size.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Choose the Android Image as the Android ISO File you downloaded earlier [and NOT THE REMIX OS].

Choose the Target Drive as the New Partition you created with NTFS File Type.

Choose Data size as per as you need. This will be the Internalย Memory. I chose it as 2GB. However you can choose it any value but try to keep it 5GB less than the total volume.

Click Install. [WARNING: Double Check the Drive you are Installing To] Wait till it completes installing Android OS on your Hard Disk. This should be done within a few minutes.

After Install Completes, you should get a Install Done Dialog Box confirming the same.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Now go to the Drive you created and Installed Android just now. Click AndroidOS Folder. You can find the following files.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Delete this File: system.sfs

Now visit the folder where you Extracted the Remix OS using 7zip.

From there, Copy the following files from the Remix OS and Paste inside the AndroidOS Folder:

  • initrd.img
  • kernel
  • ramdisk.img
  • system.img

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Note: While Pasting these files, it will ask you to Replace or Skip Files. Choose Replace the Files in the Destination.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Now, Download the Grub.cfg file from here. Store it in a folder easy to navigate.

Now Right Click on Start Button and Click Command Prompt (Admin).

Type this command and Press Enter:ย mountvol B: /s

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Now, type this command and Press Enter:ย B:

Next, type this command and Press Enter:ย cd efi\Android

Finally, type this command and Press Enter:ย copy <location of grub.cfg> grub.cfg

<location of grub.cfg> means the location where you saved it. Edit it accordingly.

For example:

If you saved it in the default Chrome downloads folder, then the command should be:

copy C:\Users\<Your Username>\Downloads\grub.cfg grub.cfg

If you saved it in say, Drive E > Downloads > grub.cfg, then the command should be:

copy E:\Downloads\grub.cfg grub.cfg

Hope you got the command format. Don’t make any Mistakes here. Give Spaces wherever mentioned inside the command.

It will ask you YES / NO / CANCEL. Typeย Yes. Press Enter.

Know what you just did: The above commands are simple and won’t affect your Windows in any ways. You just set up Dual Boot for your Windows. Now everytime you start your computer; it will ask you which OS to boot. If you select Windows, it will boot to Windows, if you choose Android OS, it will Boot to Android.

Now everything is done. Restart your computer.

While restarting, it will ask you which Operating System to Boot. Click on Change Defaults or Choose Other Options Button at the below.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Now it will show Available Options. Click Choose Other Options.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Now it will show other available options. Click Use a Device.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

Finally, choose Android OS from the Options.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

That’s all you need to do. Now, wait till it Automatically Boots itself to Android.

That’s it. You have successfully booted to Remix OS.

Now you need to Install Google Play Store on your Remix OS to enjoy all apps and games. However it does not come pre-installed. Click here to know the steps to install it.

You can also Root Your Remix OS from here.

How to Boot Back to Windows?

Booting back to Windows is easy. Just shut down once from the Android OS and Turn Onย your computer.

[Guide] How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows [UEFI / Legacy]

It will again ask you to choose which to boot. Choose Windows. And it will boot to your windows.

Everything installed on windows will stay intact as it is. This method is entirely reliable as we are not doing anything in C Drive. We are using up a different location to install Remix OS.

Video Tutorial:

Still wondering How to Do it?

Well, here is a video tutorial WITH A NEW METHOD (not the one I described above) how to do it. You may choose to check it out.

Remind you, this tutorial is ONLY FOR LEGACY DEVICES and WILL NOT WORK FOR UEFI.

Here it is below:

 

Conclusion:

That’s all about installing Remix OS on your Computer easily and Dual Booting Remix OS along with Windows. Hope you have understood it correctly. I have tried my best to make it as comfortable as possible.

    System Type : X86-based PC
    Processor : Intel Atom z2760
    Ram : 2gb
    BIOS Mode : UEFI
    Secure Boot State : Disable

    Made USB bootable with RemixOS for PC Installation Tool with 32bit Android M image for legacy Bios (as there is no 32 bit UEFI image available to Download).

    When i tried to boot from usb after grub bootloader it stuck on black screen.

    i tried with 64 bit UEFI image also but same problem.

    is any one can help me..?

      Intel Atom Processor caused this issue. Intel Atom Processors aren’t capable of running even Linux OS Properly. Issues like freezing and stuck at bootloaders are common. I would ask you to try this on a computer with intel i3, i5 or i7 processor. Thanks.

    I have a Samsung ATIV 500T Windows Tablet PC, with detachable keyboard (BIOS=UEFI, 32-bit)

    Initially i just setup Remix os 3.0 for pc, on a separate partition, upon its installation,
    It overwrite Windows Boot Manager with GNU Grub v2.0, which basically messed up my tablet pc, as Windows 10 option, was nowhere to be seen.
    and Remix OS setup’s language page did not register clicks from my keyboard.

    So i had to format my harddrive, to install Windows 10 again, & lost important files.

    So Kindly update your guide, considering Remix OS 3.0 for PC, which hopefully works ok in my tablet pc aswell.

      Hello,

      Firstly, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. ๐Ÿ™
      Secondly, I would like to notify you that we are always trying to fetch new methods and include them as soon as we get. But there lies a limitation in all these. Let me elaborate it a bit. There are thousands of computers with hundreds of manufacturers and hundreds of models which work differently. It is not possible to test on each type of model and write the steps for the same. We test on some of the models and ask our friends to try themselves, if they are able to reproduce it themselves, we understand that this method works for most (not every) computer systems and write it out. The method we included worked for majority of people with no or minor flaws. Since our step should not overwrite the Windows Boot Manager for most of the computer systems. But as always we cannot guarantee that it will work for all computer systems and our hands are also tied as we don’t get all systems to test out. Thanks for understanding.
      Lastly, thanks for reporting this. We will try to see if we can find any suitable method for you.

    hello,
    i’d like to ask how to edit grub.cfg if i just want to install only android x86(not the remix os).
    i have some issue with my surface 3 that i’d like to edit it manually.
    Thank you.
    i see the code of grub.cfg
    //
    set timeout=10

    menuentry ‘Android-x86’ –class android-x86 {
    search –file –no-floppy –set=root /AndroidOS/system.img
    linux /AndroidOS/kernel root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=remix_x86_64 androidboot.selinux=permissive quiet DATA=/AndroidOS
    initrd /AndroidOS/initrd.img
    }

    menuentry ‘Windows’ {
    search –file –no-floppy –set=root /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi
    chainloader (${root})/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi
    }

        hello,
        Well, I have to say this. I (kind of)have a problem with tablet surface 3 that it won’t let user to install other OS or let user boot OS installer from ssd/USB. ;I can’t boot from USB on surface 3, it went straight to window 10 and didn’t show any grub OS select menu. (http://www.eightforums.com/installation-setup/55025-surface-pro-3-will-not-boot-usb.html) so I tried the normal process to install android 4.4 rc3 OS by USB on my notebook and it DID WORK very well.
        Then I googled the web and found this Remix OS and I did every process you mentioned above on surface 3 and the result was that It DID WORKED, I can see grub menu to choose window 10 or Remix OS on startup.
        So since I can’t install android OS normally by booting from USB on surface 3 BUT DID SUCCEEDED INSTALL REMIX OS by your tutorial, my assumptions is that I could bypass error by just manually edit and install grub.cfg directly for Android 4.4 rc3 to be bootable when startup.
        So I would like to ask if you could give some little help on the code in the grub.cfg file to make it boot Android OS on the startup(or see the grub OS selecting menu at least).
        Thank you, appreciated.

      Hi,

      This is unexpected. Normally it should work fine. I tested on 2 computers myself already. You can do one thing, there’s a remix os community in google plus: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/remix-os-for-pc
      Just head over there and post your issue there. It’s an active official group where developers are there to assist. I am also an active member there. Post there so that we all can sort this out together. Best of luck. ๐Ÿ™‚

      This will remove the volume mount point from the specified folder.

    But it doesn’t want to start on my old PC running Windows XP pro SP3? No error message.
    I tried on my current PC running Windows10: the program is starting without any problem!
    What could be the problem?

    Another question: why not simply adding a new command line in the boot.ini ?

      Hi, I think that’s due to secure boot options. You need to disable secure boot on your windows xp computer. Btw, xp is quite older version and I wonder if your computer hardware is compatible to run the Remix OS Smoothly.

      For your second query, playing with boot.ini is risky. Grub is a better approach.

        Hello, After checking there is no secure boot option in the BIOS nor in Windows XP.
        The issue is that the installer.exe program doesn’t start at all even if the user is the administrator and after desabling security against non authorized program. It looks like a Windows XP issue!

        What is that program doing. Maybe I can do those actions through copy/paste, command lines and edit of some files?

      Shut down your system and boot back to windows. Don’t try installing it without making yourself sure you are downloading the correct version recommended for your device. If you are sure you have downloaded the correct version recommended for your device then bad luck. Wait for the future versions to release. You may get a compatible version.

      Hi, If your tablet cum laptop supports touch, then you needed to download the Remix OS for Tablet version. It has touch response enabled. The Pc version is for non-touch display and it won’t support touch. However, the keyboard should work fine. Maybe in your case, the keyboard is also running into a problem due to the non-touch response.

    After carefully following your instructions, something very unfortunate happened. My computer won’t boot into anything, error 0xc000025, “a required device isn’t connected or can’t be accessed…”. If while turning it on I enter the bootloader menu, I am able to choose Android OS and run Remix OS BUT if I try windows it will come back to the error page described before.

    I have to add I had previously installed Remix OS in a FAT 32 partition using EasyUEFI to add the boot option so I’m guessing that’s where it went wrong.

    Any ideas on repairing my windows boot would be Increidbiky appreciated ?

      Hi, I have nowhere gave instructions for EAsyUEFI, even I haven’t tried that method myself, so can’t help. Using those softwares are risky as they are 3rd party bootloaders, my method uses Windows as default bootloader, so chances of harm are nil. No idea about what to do in your case. Perhaps you can post this into remix os google group and maybe developers can help you out.

    Is it possible to run this again and increase the size or do I need to do everything again from scratch.

    And, I guess there is a software available for UEFI boot entries editing called EasyUEFI.

    Shouldn’t we use the IMG file of Android-x86 5.1? The ISO is for Legacy devices I think, and the IMG is both 64bit and supports the EFI.

    Also, did you try using EasyUEFI? It is a replacement of EasyBCD for UEFI systems.

      For your first question, you have said your processor is 64bit, so there should not be any problem ideally. But well, even if any issue occurs, it will not harm or change your windows files in any ways, all your softwares and media files in Windows will stay as it is. (at best, the android will not boot up and show error and reboot to windows). So, don’t worry. Happy Experimenting. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello, thank you for this guide. I already own a Remix Mini and I am eager to get Remix OS dual booting with my Windows side by side …

    Unfortunately I am doing something wrong I suppose. I can choose Android-OS via ‘Use a device’ at Windows side. My PC reboots and the Grub menu comes up offering me two choices 1. Android-OS, and 2. Windows. Choosing Android-OS the boot proceeds telling me that it founds Android at /dev/sdaX or /dev/hdaX (I forgot which one). Then the splash screen A N D R O I D comes. But this was all. Nothing seems to happen anymore. After a while my PC magically reboots and Windows comes back.

    Do you have another hint/trick for me?

      In the step I described:

      – I kept the bootloader as Windows.
      – So when i turn my computer, windows os bootloader loads, and asks me which os to load.
      – if i choose windows, it will immediately take me to log in screen (as windows os has already loaded that time due to windows bootloader)
      – if i choose android, only then it will load the grub bootloader and ask me which os to load again. (that is grub bootloader not windows)

      I think you didnt set Windows as default bootloader. (which means you did something wrong in between…)

      Tell me these:
      When you restart, what do you get?
      Did you disable Secure Boot?

Originally I was attempting to use an sdcard and thought that might be the issue so I tried again. using the clean option on the android application. I also mounted B: and removed the instance of Android OS created there for the sd. Then started through the tutorial again but unfortunately it failed again. And yes secure boot is disabled.

    What bootloader Remix OS uses for UEFI booting and how it differ from that it uses for Legacy booting ?
    I mean what is the difference between contents of a Legacy and UEFI Remix OS ?

    Actually I want to install both Legacy and UEFI Remix OS in my USB Drive so that I can boot Remix OS in both Legacy and UEFI system from a single USB Drive. Is it possible to keep only one ‘data.img’ file so that both Legacy and UEFI Remix OS share that common ‘data.img’ to access Apps.
    By this way I don’t have to install Android Apps twice.

    Is there any difference between following files of Legacy and UEFI Remix OS ?
    initrd.img
    Kernel
    ramdisk.img
    system.img

    I think there should be difference between bootloaders not Remix OS core files. Is it WRONG ?

    However I cannot get my computer to boot to Remix OS.

    After I chose to boot to Android-OS, the grub menu will comes up and let me choose between Android-OS and Windows again. Choosing Android-OS the splash screen comes up showing it founds an Android on /dev/hdaX or such and then showing A N D R O I D …

    Unfortunately this is the last I get to see. After a while not getting into Remix OS the computer reboots itself and Windows starts again.

    Do you have any idea what I can try?

    Thanks,
    chi

      Firstly,

      Check if you have disabled secure boot.

      If not disabled, kindly disable it.

        Dear Nirmal, I have Secure Boot disabled. I was able to legacy boot into Remix OS via the USB stick using the UEFI boot manager a few days before. So my PC also seems to meet the specs.

      Hi, maybe you have B virtual partition enabled already….try to delete that partition. (this may happen if you enter command prompt codes before installing the android x86)

      To solve, first open cmd (admin) and delete the partition B:
      This is the code:
      ————————–
      mountvol B: /d
      ————————–
      This will delete the partition.
      Then you can try.

      Hi. When you install via that Android x86 installer, Choose data size bigger…. As much as you like. That will be the internal memory size.

      Sorry but I did not get you completely.

      I can help about that.

      In the downloads page, Uncheck this option: Use our Recommended Downloader (or something like that written just below the download button). Try again.

      Maybe you have secure boot enabled. Disable secure boot first. Kindly Google it: “How to disable secure boot for Acer?”

    You kept your internal memory to 2gb. So which means, you can only install about 1 game and your memory would be full?

    • Reply
      Nirmal Sarkar January 16, 2016 at 10:40 pm

      I kept 2 GB as that time I thought it was RAM. (my stupidity)

      You can make it as much as you like. But don’t use up whole partition spece. Leave at least 5GB and choose 15GB as internal. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Everything depends on how you set up!

        you might want to add that note in the article so people know, I was so confused on what the data size meant.

        • Nirmal Sarkar January 27, 2016 at 6:43 pm

          Hi, Thanks for commenting.
          Data size means the total internal memory allotted.
          I will update the info in post.

    the command prompt “mountvol B: /s”, should i replace B with the drive i installed remix os or no?
    and can we use easybcd for dualboot windows 10 with remix os in uefi??

    • Reply
      Nirmal Sarkar January 16, 2016 at 7:34 pm

      No. You should NOT do that change. Keep the command as it it.

      No, you cant use easybcd for uefi devices. ๐Ÿ™

      But try out this method, it is working properly. ๐Ÿ™‚

        AFAIK, EasyBCD 2.3 support both Windows 10 and UEFI, then why we can use EasyBCD NeoGrub bootloader to Dual Boot Remix OS and Windows 10 in UEFI mode ?

        BTW, In case of UEFI booting of Remix OS, What is by default bootloader ?

        • Nirmal Sarkar January 17, 2016 at 10:35 pm

          Thanks for commenting.

          EasyBCD is for Legacy Devices, and not for UEFI devices. I have tried with it. It does not allow for Uefi.

          Yeah, I tried too it doent work.

        Dimasdanu didn’t use the drive letter B. What is the reason that you think he/she shouldn’t change the command to use the correct drive letter?

        • Natao3000 January 18, 2016 at 5:49 am

          B: is the partition in EFI mode. On legacy mode rais error when run mountvol B: /s

          It is:
