Chrome OS Quick Install guide
To install Chrome OS you need to run Linux first. Here we bundle using Linux Mint. You can create bootable media first, I recommend using USB and software like Rufus. Once you run the Linux Mint, you need to go to the “Computer > File System > cdrom > Chrome OS” folder, right-click on blank space and choose “Open in Terminal“. Then execute the following command:
sudo apt-get install cgpt pv
sudo sh install.sh
Type “yes” and hit “Enter” if asked.
Once you’re done installing you can restart your PC/Laptop and run Chrome OS that’s already installed. Don’t forget to unplug the USB bootable or the media you use to run the Linux Mint.
