Install Remix OS in External Hardrive / USB Flash Drive

Remix Os

During The CES 2016, JIDE announced their Free customized Operation System  called « Remix OS for PC » and users start downloading it on their PC or Mac. 
Remix Os is a customized Android os which looks like Windows or Chrome Os. You can find a start menu , a notification tray which you can swipe in from the right side similar to windows 10 and OSX. you can actually right click everything which gives you that desktop atmosphere and of course you can run apps in individual window or Fullscreen.
Another thing to mention remember always that you are using android apps so everything from Facebook to Instagram to Modern Combat 5 or Clash of Clans will work on Remix OS.
you can use this operation system with your USB 3.0 or external hard drive  if you want a portable operation system which you can open and use with any other PCs or mac you own without installing it again or you can make a partition on your internal hard drive for a permanent use.
today I am going to show you how to install Remix Os on your external hard drive or USB flash drive and in the next tutorial I am going to show you how to install it in your internal hard drive for a permanent use .

Tools you need:
USB Flash Drive 3.0 (USB 2.0 flash drive will not work fine the reason is that the read and write speed is under 20mb/s which make the USB 2.0 flash drive very slow .)
Or External Hard Drive USB 2.0 or USB3.0

  1. HI Wajid.
    Did you get to try it on a permanent installation, on your hard drive? Will this process work if I install it on an external ssd and then put it as "internal" drive?
    how about the disk space, does it detect the full disk space?
    thank you 🙂
