Remix OS is Android OS for PC

Here I am going to show how to install Remix OS along side with Ubuntu without making separate disk partition.

Prerequisite: Ubuntu installed PC

Now get your copy of Remix OS from :

On downloading you will have this file:

Unzip it.

Now you get

Extract file: Remix_OS_for_PC_Android_M_xxxxxxxxxx.iso

and you will get:

Create a new Folder named ‘remix’ and copy the below files from the extracted folder:


now copy the remix folder to your home folder

now open terminal and go to root folder

now run command:

sudo mv home/USER_NAME/remix /

where USER_NAME is your current user name

now you have moved the remix folder to your root folder

now run command:

sudo gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom

this will open a text file:

Append the below code to the file:

menuentry “RemixOS” {
linux /remix/kernel root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=remix_x86_64 androidboot.selinux=permissive quiet SERIAL=random logo.showlogo=1 SRC= DATA= CREATE_DATA_IMG=1
initrd /remix/initrd.img

now you will have:

now save it and in terminal run command:

sudo update-grub

this will update your boot grub and add RemixOS option to it.

Restart your PC to select RemixOS from the boot menu.

Now sometimes your PC will not be showing the boot selection menu.

it might directly load Ubuntu by default. so to enable the boot selection

run command:

sudo -H gedit /etc/default/grub

and insert # at the start of the line GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0.

save and run command:

sudo update-grub

This should make Grub menu appears on every boot.
