How To Run Google’s Chrome OS without using a Virtual Machine

Sun, Dec 13, 2009

Hacks, Mac&Windows Hacks, News

So as we all know Google’s new chromium OS looked exciting but once we relized that we all had to use a Virtual Machine to run it, it kind of made the excitement die.

Luckily there is a way to run Googles new OS *Without* installing any VM software and run it off a USB flash drive, how? you might ask, well thanks to a few clever people the process is rather easy this is not my work and should not be treated as such this is ALL quoted from  ChromeOSgeek.com Also I just included the Mac and Windows guide you can actually head over to his site and check out his guide for linux as well.

Windows Instructions for installing Chromium OS to USB

Download Image Writer for Windows from here and extract the program. Launch the program, and select the image (ChromeOS-Cherry.img) and your USB drive letter from the drop down box. Click “Write”. The install image will then be copied to the drive. Once it’s done, close the program and you can then boot from the USB Drive.

For Mac Users Follow this procedure

Firstly, unmount the drive you want to install Chromium OS to. Place the downloaded file onto your desktop. Open System Profiler, click USB on the list at the side and then select the entry that represents your USB disk. Now look for the BSD Name column (http://bit.ly/5mG4WK). Remember what is written here. In my case, it is disk1, but in yours it may be different. Take care here as if you get it wrong, it could seriously mess things up. Once you have this, open up Terminal and type the following commands.

cd Desktop
tar -zxvf ChromeOS-Cherry.tar.gz

For the next command, replace X with the name of the disk you found earlier, ie disk1.

sudo dd if=ChromeOS-Cherry.img of=/dev/X bs=4m

This command will ask you to enter your password (the same one you enter when installing software for example), type it in and press enter. This command will take a while to run, about 20 minutes for me, and then will give you your shell prompt back once it has finished. Once it has, you can remove your USB drive and boot from it.

The biggest question is how do I go about obtaining this distribution? Simple I managed to find a link to Chrome OS Slim for download right here so hopefully those of you who saw this on YouTube will be able to give this a shot for yourself and test it out!.

Also stay tuned on my blog because the next episode of my podcast will be out soon. And I may make a post talking about what is going to be happening concerning videos in the first quarter of 2010.
