Hi, I've been unable to install Phoenix OS (and Remix OS) on my Surbook. The BIOS options are also limited and don't have a way to disable secure boot.
Is it possible to install Phoenix or Remix on the Surbook?

Hi, I think  that the way is the same followed for ubuntu.
Are you created the usb media correctly?
When booting, nothing to prompt?

I've actually gotten Phoenix OS and Android x86 to boot on it. The problem was grub doesn't work with the Chuwi tablets, so I had to manually install rEFInd, then delete the grub boot files and modify the config files.

The problem is, the touch screen doesn't work I can only use it with a mouse/keyboard. It's really difficult to manually install drivers into Android, so I think I might have to give up on this dream.

Hi I'm interested in buying a surbook mini tablet when available and to install Phoenix os on it too. I'm not sure to be able to help you due to my limited knowledge on it. But I here is someone who succeeded to solve a touchscreen problem after installing Phoenix os on an hi12 tablet using a vi10 Phoenix os ROM. He used Android Image Kitchen and copied the 'etc' and 'lib' folders from patches to the phoenix archive. Could be a clue ...  http://konstakang.com/devices/chuwi_vi10plus/RemixOS/  https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=135290

Guess this didn't go any further? I installed pos on the HDD but hangs after boot. Phoenix is great on my old Asus it would be a great addition to the surbook as windows alone is average. Any other ax86 work?

Surbook mini is very very easy to get Phoenix OS installed, I'll do a separate thread on how easy it is. only downside is touch screen doesn't work but at least android installs and works as it should.
