I have made the USB drive bootable using rufus or other softwares with prime/phoenix/Android os iso's.
The pendrive is showing up in the boot menu.

When selected it give me three option: primeOS live, PrimeOS installation, Advance: debug/install to specific hdd, other options.
Which ever option to install the os is selected, It give a black screen, with symbol "-" at right top corner.
It won't proceed further.
Tried with different USB's, software's, iso's. It still the same.

When I use the prime os Installer, it give me a grub screen. "GNU grub version V2.02 Minimal bash ........ error"
Laptop model: Acer Predator helios 300 Ph315 - 53. UEFI and GPT.

Bios version: Insyde corp v2.02 latest one

Also the boot mode: UEFI is grayed out. ( The F2 interface is different, instead of blue and grey screen)
I have tried with my other laptop it proceeds further after showing - symbol with some boot codes and proceed to the os installation.

Please help me on this.

Note: Use PrimeOS installer exe program for installing in windows systems. Download link is below. For non-windows systems ,you can download our iso image and follow the steps below to install PrimeOS.


USB stick / Flash Drive guide:
  1. For this method, you need Etcher / Rufus, PrimeOS iso file. We recommend you to use a decent speed USB drive (8GB or larger).
  2. For flashing PrimeOS to the USB drive, plug in your USB drive and launch Etcher / Rufus. Now select PrimeOS iso file, create the bootable USB.
  3. Note: Be careful with the steps below and backup your data if you're not sure about what you are doing.
  4. For installing PrimeOS on your HDD/SSD/SDcard, first create a new partition for PrimeOS ( suggested minimum size is 16GB ).
  5. Turn off secure boot of your device and then boot up the PrimeOS USB by pressing Esc or F12, depending on your bios menu key and selecting the PrimeOS USB to boot from.
  6. Select the ‘Install PrimeOS option from GRUB menu.
  7. The installer will load, and you will have an option to choose which partition you created earlier. Choose it, and select Ext4 for formatting the drive.
  8. When it asks if you want to install Grub, select YES.
  9. When finished, the installer will then ask if you want to run PrimeOS, you can just reboot here, and make sure you remove the USB drive.
Do you already have PrimeOS and want to update manually ? Read post #2851

The classic version of PrimeOS 0.4.5 its supposed to be 32 bits, but when I ran it in a 32 bit system in debug mode, it appeared a message saying that the kernel is x64, so, what is the 32 bit version?

Hello! I have a problem with Prime OS regarding its time. It keeps changing randomly to a future date and time while doing basic tasks like browsing and using apps. I have done the following troubleshooting to isolate the issue.
1. Checked and changed BIOS date and time.
2. Replaced my CMOS battery and make sure it has 3v as recommended by ou local technician.
3. On Prime OS I change the setting to sync with network-provided date and time.
4. When time changed in Prime OS I checked the BIOS and everything looks good.

Has anyone encountered this kind of problem?

This is because the time settings in Prime OS is not UTC. Just follow the following steps
1) Let the time auto update when you connect with network and uncheck option for sync with network-provided date and time.
2) Open /etc/init.sh with superuser privilege and at the end of it add,
hwclock -us
3) Save and reboot. This technique works in remix os, phoenix os as well.

    Important announcement (Updated on Feb 16 2019)

    Hello everyone, we will soon release PrimeOS 0.4.3, as you all know, we normally release both 32 bit and 64 bit variants, but starting from PrimeOS 0.4.3, this has changed, we will now have three variants depending on hardware, please read below very carefully and decide which one suits you best.

    Note - We are not releasing OTA for 0.4.3 since we want every user to install the correct variant for their hardware.

    1. PrimeOS Mainline 64 bit (for newest systems 2014+) -
      Use this variant only if you have a cpu which was manufactured in or after year 2014, For example -> [ Intel Core i series 5th gen or above OR Intel celeron N4000 OR AMD A8 7410 etc. ] Also make sure that your CPU has SSE 4.2 instruction support, just enter your cpu model on google and you can find all this info easily. This variant of PrimeOS will work well for both Intel and AMD GPUs, however, if you use a desktop and have a Nvidia GPU, you should not use this variant as it will cause lockups and will lead to freezes, but if you have a laptop, your Intel gpu will work well instead of Nvidia. In case you get any graphic glitches on this variant, you should switch to PrimeOS Standard.
      This variant of PrimeOS will be using 4.19 kernel and 18.1.0 mesa, once you install this variant of PrimeOS, you will always get OTA of this variant only, in case you want to switch to the other variant (for older systems), you must re-install PrimeOS.​
    2. PrimeOS Standard 64 bit (for newer systems 2011+) -
      Use this variant only if you have a cpu which was manufactured in or after year 2011, For example -> [ Intel Core i series 2nd gen or above OR Intel celeron N3350 OR AMD A8 5550M etc. ] Also make sure that your CPU has SSE 4.2 instruction support, just enter your cpu model on google and you can find all this info easily. This variant of PrimeOS will work well for Older Intel, AMD, Nvidia GPUs.
      This variant of PrimeOS will be using 4.14 kernel and 17.1.10 mesa, once you install this variant of PrimeOS, you will always get OTA of this variant only, in case you want to switch to the other variant (for older systems), you must re-install PrimeOS.​
    3. PrimeOS Classic 32 bit (for older systems) -
      Use this variant if you have a cpu which was manufactured before year 2011, For example ->[ Intel Core i series 1st gen or below OR Intel Pentium dual core OR Intel Pentium G620 OR AMD Phenom II X6 1100T etc. ] Just enter your cpu model on google and you can find this info easily. This variant of PrimeOS will work well for all Old Intel, Old AMD and Old Nvidia GPUs. This version will also work on 32-bit systems, In case you cannot boot this variant of PrimeOS, you should try using PrimeOS standard or mainline.
      This variant of PrimeOS will be using 4.14 kernel and 17.1.10 mesa, once you install this variant of PrimeOS, you will always get OTA of this variant only, in case you want to switch to the other variant (for older systems), you must re-install PrimeOS.​

    Hey guys,

    Thank you all for giving us the support and love. Upon a lot of requests we are thinking about releasing an official 32 bit image.
    Also there will be a new experimental build which will be coming with latest cutting edge linux mainline kernels i.e. it will be having the latest up to date device drivers.
    The experimental build will not be inline with the current stable-BETA releases but will follow a different release pattern.

    It will be coming with the following differences:

    • Latest PrimeOS system patches
    • Latest mainline kernel
    • Any new experimental PrimeOS system features

    This will also help us making the OS stable in a faster and efficient manner.
    Stay tuned
