Hello! Android is the most widely used mobile operating system in the world. Indeed, this Linux-based system has a large market share. For that reason, some users would like to try it on their computers. However, this is usually not an easy task. Since some emulators are complicated to use or demand a lot of system resources. Well, today we will see an alternative way. We bring you an independent operating system based on Android 7.1. In addition, this system has simple hardware requirements. So it is a good way to revive computers with old software. It also has other interesting features that we will explore below. Without further ado, let’s see how to install Android on a PC with Phoenix OS.

As mentioned, the hardware requirements are very modest:

  • A x86 processor
  • At least 4GB of free hard disk storage

How to install Phoenix OS on a computer.

As mentioned above, this distribution has some very interesting elements. Since on its website, we find two types of files to download. That is, it is possible to download an ISO to install on a hard disk partition or test in a virtual machine. Additionally, the project offers us a very intuitive installer. It allows you to prepare a USB bootable file to test the installation live. On the other hand, it also allows us to install the operating system together with our main system. And this without compromising the files or configuration. Well, this time we will install Phoenix OS to have a dual boot on the computer. First, download the .EXE file from the download page.
