I was able to boot PhoenixOS and Android-x86 successfully on MIIX320.
Android-x86: Bluetooth, camera, gyro, audio jack does not work
Phoenix Os: Camera, gyro, audio jack does not work
For people facing difficulty with random text while booting, make sure to run command "set gfxpayload=800x1280" in grub while booting or entering this line in grub file.
For people wanting to use PhoenixOS
1)Get RUFUS and copy of latest PhoenixOS (Oreo)
2)With help of rufus, load it on USB stick
3)Lenovo that comes with 32 GB already runs at low space. Reset the pc with all data and that will give you 13-14 gb free at start, also uninstall unnecessary apps from windows, now download EaseUS partition master and with help of it shrink the C drive and make yourself available with 12 gb free space, and now format this new partition with FAT32 (i will tell you why to do so), now you will have D: drive with 12 GB, click a picture of all drives listed.
4)Shutdown the lenovo MIIX 320
3)Hold powder down and Volume + button, release when you see Lenovo logo
4)Select boot menu
5)Boot from USB
6)You will be given two prompt now
a) Run phoenix directly from USB
b) Install phoenixOS
7)Before selecting to install phoenixOS, press C and grub will open, enter "set gfxpayload=800x1280", hit enter, and press escape key, it will take you back to selection menu.
8)Select install PhoenixOS
9)It will ask you location to install and select new partition that we created above, this part is tricky as it is hard to recognize which partition is your D partition, with help of picture taken as i instructed, you can see there are few partition with NTFS and few with FAT32, picture will help you select the correct one as they are in same logical structure.
10)It will ask you to format this drive now, format it with ext4. and follow all prompts with yes option now.
11) At last it will ask you to either run PhoenixOS or reboot, select run PhoenixOS and after successful booting, restart it.
12)Now you will see you are not getting PhoenixOS in the boot menu.
13)Boot normal into windows and and download grub2win and make a manual entry as below.
From this picture below, select add new entry
Grub Entry example (Worked perfectly for me)
selecting drive and folder of phoenixOS(select folder PhoenixOS from D: drive)
Reeboot and you are done. Please leave a comment in case anyone needs any help.
Boot Code in case any want to experiment loading PhoenixOS manually from grub command line
(Highlighted text worked for me, ignore the rest)

Thanks for making this guide. Will try over the weekend. Does the system clock work fine? in my experience before dual booting messes up the time.
How is the performance of PhoenixOS?

How about the Max microsSD card detected by both windows and Android OS on the miix 320?
On wnindows, my 64GB Sandisks (2 cards) can't be read as well as my Sony 16GB but my Kingston 32GB can be read just fine.
Wondering if there are compatibility issues with Sandisk, Sony and Lenovo
