Before we begin, download Remix OS from its site, if you have already downloaded the zip file then we are ready to go for installation.

  1. Extract the downloaded zip file to some location.
  2. Before we begin installation we need to create a partition of atleast 8GB using any partition tool. We would recommend to use Easus Partition Manager to create partition. Once you have created the partition format the partition in FAT32 system.
  3. Now our partition is created, extract the contents of ISO file to the new partition. Also copy the ISO file without modification to the same newly created partition. Now our partition must have a ISO file along the extracted contents of ISO file. Your partition content should look similar to below photo.Partition content-Installing Remix OS on Windows PC dual boot
  4. Now we need to make the entry  of RemixOS to boot menu, for that we need to download EasyBCD. After download launch the program. Select Add New Entry  ->  In the lower right pane select ISO -> Now add a name to be shown in boot menu e.g RemixOS -> In path select the ISO which you have copied in new partition created for RemixOS -> Click on Add Entry button at bottom right. After these steps your EasyBCD window should look like this.
