  1. I have a lot of old laptops and the one I dislike the most is a Samsung Chromebook (trying to sell it but no takers). I like the Chrome browser and install it on all my machines; but I prefer Windows 7 O.S..

  2. it's not chrome os, it's chromium os which is made by amateurs, chromium os don't have the quality of a google product

  3. well i would like to try in virtual box, for those complain about a downgrade try linix mint 19 cinnamon really great for old laptops and pcs

  4. had planned on doing this and just hadn't taken the time. I will now didn't realize how easy and quick it would be. Excellent pointer on the USB drive size. Well done!

  5. I did this but I need to update my Asia video card driver cuz the screen is jittering can you help me figure out how to do this ?

  6. Hi, I have a question. Can the chrome os be installed on a tablet? I have an Acer a200 and would love to upgrade it somehow from the old base android system it has and is no longer supported

  7. I wonder if it can support old Netgear wi-fi adapters? I have an old Compaq (before the IBM acquisition) with no built-in wi-fi, but under Windows XP it uses a plug-in card from Netgear to get to wi-fi. I tried building a Linux partition a few years ago but Linux doesn't have drivers for those cards. If Chrome does, and they aren't as hard to install as Linux drivers, this old machine could be donated to a charity.

  8. I have an old laptop that I want to donate to a kid's center. Since I need to use a gmail account to install chrome OS I have a question. Can I log in, install it and then log out? that way when the kid's center gets the laptop they can enter in whatever they want? or does it always need my information? Presario c7000 if that matters.

  9. Why don't they make an iso file with chrome os like any other operating system? I wouldn't bother with it. Too much work.

  10. I don't think I can thank you enough…. You just saved my old Dell Inspiron Mini 1084 (something like that) from extinction

  11. does this method support dual booting with win 7/win10 or it will overwrite the bootloader or worse the windows OS itself?

  12. Just use a linux distro like Linux Lite or Peppermint OS (a bit lighter) or AntiX w/rox icewm (ultra light), you get a fully functional desktop you can install free apps. It's easy to install with a usb drive and you won't have google or microsoft logging your every keystroke and spying on you.

  13. My thoughts: a normal laptop has a ventilator and hard disk and so even Chrome OS will not use a few Watt power as on a real Chromebook with it's passive cooling and SSD and very low energy processor. Something like Puppy Linux could be just as simple and the speed will not be much less since it runs from ram.

  14. I had a laptop years ago that had a CD eject mechanism they split the keyboard open in the middle and that’s where the disk came out. Anyone remember that model. I’d like to find one but I don’t remember the model.

  15. What happens if you got partition on the hard drive? would it clear out everything and would have just one partition?

  16. I can't make it boot after installation. Asus F5VL with Pentium Dual Core T2330, 8GB pendrive used.

  17. What about files on Local Disk D, will chromium delete all my files or just delete files on Local Disk C, where is my system now?

  18. Don't use ChromiumOS/ChromeOS or any of the forks, just use regular Linux. ChromeOS restricts and removes features that make Linux what it is.

  19. Upgrade all OSes to linux, cause the others you pay for with your privacy. Linux is truly free and open source.

  20. Why upgrade to a Google Os that leave your privacy exposed 24/24 on the cloud?

    I don't get it, it's like a pretty woman who go buy transparent undies in hopping to prevent rape

  21. Why is Chrome OS but not modern? Chronium or F… I could not official website for downloads…

  22. why would anyone want a wimpy os like this faux os.. chrome? it does not even run the chrome. 🙁 Try and use your subscription to youtube tv without chrome…. sorry, not .a true advocate, but a realist. chrome is the most popular browser on earth, lots of video sites demand it, An os that does not run the most used browser of all is a junk waste of time…….. besides, it may look like a chrome book, but it is not a chromebook….

  23. Will you get updates for the chrome is if you do this or will you have to reinstall everything?e you need to update?

  24. Unless that person's usage scenario involved 99.99% of google's ecosystem…only. that ISN'T an upgrade. Why install an os that is that limiting versus installing a good linux distro like Mint xfce that is lightweight enough and will breathe new life into it without being so limiting? ( and before you all bitch about " but waa ya can't game on linux" yes you can..Steam has proton..Lutris runs damn nearly anything else and regardless wtf is trying to play TODAY'S demanding titles on a system that is easily 13 years old or older and it's a laptop that has no dedicated graphics card? That is the scenario I'm talking about)

  25. I’m not real sure why anyone would want to do this , as much as google is known for spying on everyone’s activities online! You put your faith and trust in their software that will then have all your information like usernames, pin’s, passwords, SS#’s bank account’s and the list goes on and on, WHY would you do that!???
