Remix OS has gained popularity in a very short time. It is being developed and optimized for Desktop users. Jide’s Remix OS project is based on Android-x86 and recently they have hired the father of Android-x86 Chih-Wei Huang as lead “X86 Technology Lead”. This is a very good news for all Android-x86 lovers but the project is still under beta mode. We have recently covered few HowTo guides related to Android on PC and we also discussed Phoenix OS which claims to be a better version of Remix OS. But anyways, in this we will be showing you how you can create a dual boot machine with Remix OS and Windows 7 or 8/10.
