Dual booting Phoenix OS using ISO

You can install it on a USB drive or a partition of your computer’s hard disk. It will run even fine when installed on a USB drive, also when not installed on the hard disk it does not interfere with your original operating system, that makes the situation very simple and you choose when to boot the original operating system or Phoenix OS.
If you choose to install on it a USB stick, after the tool finishes writing files on it.

  1. Download latest Phoenix OS ISO.
  2. Get this USB maker tool (by Phoenix OS) and copy both inside a folder on your computer.

Open Phoenix OS installer tool (it’s can be directly executed no installation is required) and drag the ISO file inside the tool and make sure to select the desired USB drive and hit the Write button.

Once it finishes the process, turn off the computer and boot while pressing the USB boot options key, and select the USB drive and choose Phoenix OS to load the operating system on your computer directly from the U-drive.


Now that you did a dual boot of Windows and Phoenix OS, you can tweak some settings to load the Android OS by default. If you want to remove Phoenix OS, you have to remove its information from GRUB bootloader (It’s custom bootloader which replaces Windows bootloader to add the additional operating system into boot menu.)

(Archive) Dual Boot Phoenix OS 1.0 / Beta

Note: This older version installation is very complex according to a reader, it’s advisable to use the latest version of Phoenix OS.
Things you will need.
EasyBcd 2MB
To install it on the hard disk you have two options.

  • 1. On existing hard drive/local disk partition.
  • 2. New partition on the hard drive using partition manager.

1) you can use any existing hard disk (other than main one,  C://)
Or
2) right click on my computer and choose manage tab. Go to disk management and look for a hard disk that has more than 10GB space.
Select that drive and right click and choose “Shrink volume” and put at least 8000 and click OK. It will make 8~ GB of unallocated free space. Click on that and want to make a primary portion and proceed it. You just made a new disk partition dedicated to Phoenix Os.
Step 1. Open Phoenix Os zip with WinRAR and extract all files to that that hard disk. And rename that folder to “Android-5.1.1.”
It should be like –  Local disk/android-5.1.1

Fix 1. Replace the initrd.Img file with the downloaded one. So Phoenix Os won’t stuck on its logo.
Fix 2. Paste the isolinux folder inside “android-5.1.1”. Make sure it will look like below image!!
Install EasyBCD.
Open it and click “Add new entry” option and install the NeoGrub Bootloader on the NeoGrub tab.
Don’t touch other settings such that drop-down is asking for a hard disk. Let it default (c:/) otherwise; Phoenix Os will not load.

When the NeoGrub Bootloader it’s installed, click on configure button. And paste this following code. And read on.

default=0
timeout=0
splashimage=/grub/android-x86.xpm.gz
root (hd0,1)
title Android 5.1.1
kernel /android-5.1.1/kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=android_x86 video=-16 SRC=/android-5.1.1
initrd /android-5.1.1/initrd.img
title Android 5.1.1 (video=LVDS-1:d)
kernel /android-5.1.1/kernel quiet video=LVDS-1:d root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=android_x86 video=-16 SRC=/android-5.1.1
initrd /android-5.1.1/initrd.img

Hold on, don’t save it now. Mind that line that says root (hd0,1)?
This tells bootloader where to look for the boot files.
You need to make edit to this according to your hard drive where Phoenix Os files are present
In case that you have just only one HDD, just let it hd0. And change ‘1’ to drive number.
Example: I have 4 partitions, and my hard disk partition number, (where I loaded PhoenixOS files) is number 4 so, on the code posted on NeoGrubs Bootloader, I will put root (hd0,4).

Determine Phoenix OS partition

Now, the partition: On Bootice, you will see there is a partition Manage button, click it. in the first column check the number the partition you selected for installing the Phoenix OS. Once you have it open, you will see the Hard Drives are listed accord their number on the destination Disk drop down.
