Install Android RemixOS on Mac PC

Very clear and quick, look at our instruction to see how to install and run Remix OS 2.0 smoothly in Mac OS X on Macbooks or iMac and in Windows on PCs.

RemixOS is an OS that is re-designed from Android 5.0. The version I introduce here is developed by Android x86 group, it therefore works so well on almost Mac and Common PC (Intel / AMD). RemixOS supports Play Store and other Google services, so it is possible to download and install Android App into your PC. Interestingly, RemixOS makes it able to launch Android Apps under separated Windows in Mac OS X and Windows (Windows 7, 8, 10). Moreover,  RemixOS allows users to use Mouse and Keyboards at normal.

Step 3. Boot your Mac or PC from the Bootable RemixISO USB

For Macbook or iMac, just press the power button then hold the option key to driver to the Windows of Boot Options. At for normal PCs, hold down F9 (Acer), F8 or Esc (Asus) , F12 on Dell…

From the Boot Menu, you should see your USB option there. Choose it, then you start going into Remix OS 2.0.

There will be 2 different modes to get into Remix OS. Resident mode will save your data and can be accessed next time without your USB drive. In another hand, Guest mode will require your USB Drive and won’t save any of your data on Remix OS 2.0.
