What if my PC is stuck at the flashing display of Remix OS and cannot proceed to setup?

Please check the writing speed of your flash drive, flash drives with low writing speeds may not be able to support the boot process. It is recommended to use USB 3.0 flash drives with a read/write speed of 20MB/s and above. Do note that it takes up to 15 minutes to boot up for the first use after installation of Remix OS for PC.

    Same for me. It gets to "A N D R O I D" and then stops. Intel i7 quad-core and a popular NVidia graphics card. Booting from a 64GB SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 flash drive in a USB 3.0 port on the PC.

    If you join the google group, this release has big problems with Nvidia GPUs. I got it to boot on a Intel HD4000 but not my 980 or 970M.

    It will not run on practically any current GPU. In my view, the current platform only works properly until 5th generation Intel platform (GPU Intel) . Could not ensure correct operation in a 6th generation.

    Albustanji - If you have an Nvidia GPU (graphics chip) them this Remix alpha release probably won't work. Try a PC with an Intel graphics card / chip.

    Same problem here. It's been showing the RemixOS flashing starting logo for about an hour and half. And I see this is not resolved so I'm moving on to a different OS. This would have been a more persuading OS if it supported 32bit computers and tablets. Or if it could start... Looks really good though, and I'm sure it's difficult to make it work perfectly on every device, but you should really address those issues considering how many people have them.

    If you have Nvidia GPU, put ' nouveau.modeset=1 i915.modeset=0 ' in the grub

    I have my Google Pixel first gen set up in a USB booting mode and I would love to run Remix OS instead of Chrome OS. I have booted it but when I do it sends me through a setup restart setup again loop. I would love to Install Remix OS 2.0 on my machine is that possible or should I try Crouton and run it alongside Chrome OS?

    The shareit and xenter like apps not at all working due to the WiFi and Hotspot not enabling.. I can't able to transfer files into it. And the pc drives are not at all showing up like my E drive F drive or any other drives are not at all showing up in the file manager and the USB is also not showing up with its contents it's horrible really.. Otherwise all seems good.. Plz look into this matter and solve it as soon as possible.. Using inspiron 3521 i5 4Gb 500gb hdd.

    My download of March 1st release took quite a while to boot up, then continued to reboot on its own on 3.0 USB drive. Earlier releases with rooted system image from XDA are working great. Still no streaming Hulu or Netflix, but Kodi works great and has all of the same content I normally watch. Spotify works well, and the rooted system file includes a equalizer. There is also a rooted system image with Google services pre-installed. I think I will try to root March 1st release and see what happens. Remix on

    Hi. First of all, thank you for your efforts, I'm really looking forward for a final release of this OS :D
    That said, I'm trying to boot RemixOS from a Sandisk 16gb USB3 drive on my Dell laptop (i5-6200u, radeon r5 m335, 8gb RAM), but I always get a different behaviour everytime I try to boot it: one time I got stuck in the flashing logo, then at the A N D R O I D terminal screen, then I got a functional terminal but no GUI, then only a black screen... Can someone help me? Or is this a known issue? Again, thank you, keep up the good work :D

    I'm trying it in Virtualbox so you can't blame it on a flash disk.   This problem exists straight from the iso.

    When I first saw an advertisement for remix OS it was about how this is a perfect OS for old machines that you want to renew. How can I renew old machine if USB 3.0 is mandatory. Other than that I have a 3.0 stick with write rate above 20mps and 3.0 ports and still booting process gets to black screen with _ in the corner and just hangs there doing nothing.

    When i start Remix OS it shows a progress bar with upgrading, after that bar completes it says its starting. After it shows the welcome screen again for a second  and goes back to the progress bar with upgrading on it, to go into an infinite boot loop.
