    I have a Dell Vosto 3446. I installed Windows 10 on it and used it for around 6-9 months, but due to lots of error, I reinstalled Windows 7. When I was using Windows 10 I tried to Dual Boot Phoenix OS and Windows 10, I was not able to install Phoenix OS. Now when I installed Windows 7, I can install Phoenix OS but it directly boots into Windows. I don't get any bootloader where I can choose the OS. I am running Windows on Legacy mode.
    Specs:
    4 Gb RAM
    i3 4th gen @ 1.7Ghz
    2 Gb nVidia Graphics.......

    Note:- I need the solution very quick as my exams are getting over and I can't wait to play PUBG with my friends!! HELP!!!

    The Phoenix OS does not boot at startup.
    A: You can refer to the link for the original system. If it is started in traditional mode: It may be due to the other installed systems or boot tools. You can try to reinstall the Phoenix OS. If it is started in UEFI mode: You can adjust the boot in the bios and set “Phoenix OS” as the first boot.

    If that doesn't work, I suggest you ask in the PhoenixOS forum
    http://bbs.phoenixstudio.org/en/
    since very few people who look in this forum run that OS.

    Try the free EasyBCD. No guarantees with that; I've used it quite successfully for Windows and Linux based systems.
