How to Install Phoenix OS on your PC?

Here we will install Phoenix OS on an external USB Flash Drive. So all your windows files will stay intact and untouched. None of your softwares and media on your Hard Disk and Windows OS will get deleted.

Each time you connect the USB Flash Drive and Boot, you will get to start on Phoenix OS, and after you are done, you can disconnect the Flash Drive and boot back to Windows.

So it is portable too, and after you had burned the Phoenix OS Image on your Flash Drive, you can just use it on any computer.

Well, the installation steps described here for Phoenix OS is made for both UEFI and Legacy Devices, you don’t have to worry about that. (If you don’t know these two terms, just skip it.)

Lastly,ย this version is currently made for 32-bit devices only. For the 64 bit devices, it isn’t supporting yet. But don’t yell, there is another Operating System for 64-bit device owners you can try out: Remix OS, yet another stunning Android OS for computers. Check out How to Dual Boot Remix OS with Windows.

Let’s begin with the installation procedure of this Operating System.

First of all, Download the Phoenix OS from here. It will be a zip file of around 370MB.

You need to download a USB Tool that will burn Phoenix OS on your USB Flash Drive to make it a bootable media. It can be downloaded from here. It is an exe file of less than 1MB.

Lastly, you need to have a USB Flash Drive. I will recommend at least 4GB of USB 3.0 Flash Drive with a writing speed of 20MBPS. If you don’t have one, you can easily grab one from here.

So make sure you have all three of these before we proceed any further.

First Insert the USB Flash Drive into your computer.

After your computer detects it, Go to My Computer and Right Click on that Removable Storage and Click Format.

The Format Dialog Box will appear.

Choose Format type as extFAT or FAT32 and keep allocation unit size as it is, and click on Start.

[Guide] How to Install Phoenix OS on your PC? (UEFI / Legacy)

It will throw an error that all your media will be deleted, Click OK.

Wait for it to format it in FAT. It will show Format Complete Dialog Box after it completes Formatting.

Now, double-click on the USB Maker Burning Tool Exe file that you downloaded to run it.

It will be on Chinese. But Don’t worry. I will help you out understanding it.

I have translated it in English, check out the picture below:

[Guide] How to Install Phoenix OS on your PC? (UEFI / Legacy)

Refer to the image as you follow the steps below:

On the Choose Zip Option, Click on Browse and Choose the Phoenix Operating System you downloaded.

On the Choose Drive to Install Button, choose the External USB Drive.

Finally, click on Start Button. You will get this warning Message.

I am translating it for you. It says,

Are you sure?

  1. Make sure you take backup of the media.
  2. Ensure that you have chosen the correct drive.

Proceed?

Click Yesย to start burning the Phoenix OS on your USB Flash Drive.

      Hi, You are NOT ALONE. Everyone of us is in the same problem. Actually in their country Google services does not work and hence they did not include support for the same. XDA Developers are trying to make a google service that can support phoenix. Till then, enjoy the other features. Thanks.

      Hi, this depends on the compatibility of the Remix OS on your hardware and cannot be modified so that it may work. You need to wait till the devs release a better version of the site.

      Hi, Google Play Store is a property of Google and not shipped with the rom. You need to install it manually from external source.

      Yes Phoenix is bootable on 32bit. Remix isn’t.

        No, it is not bootable on 32bit PC. Remix and Phoenix are both for 64-bit devices not as it is writen on their website.

        • Nirmal Sarkar January 23, 2016 at 5:17 pm

          HI, Phoenix is for x86 devices, meaning it is for 32 bit, written on their site.

        • enaon January 23, 2016 at 9:24 pm

          I wonder, have you even tried installing on a 32bit pc?

          Anyway, it;s known by now to anyone that tried, that the 32bit reference to the web site is wrong, this is 64bit kernel only for now.
