Go here http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/vanilla.php to get the latest version of the Chromium OS. 2. Scroll down and click on the latest build’s icon of a USB stick. This is a pretty big file so it may take some time to download. 3. Be sure to save the file to your desktop or to a folder that you can easily find again. 4. You will need an extraction software such as WinRar (free!) to extract the file you just downloaded. http://www.win-rar.com/download.html 5. Unzip the.tar.gz file you just downloaded in step 2.
7. Once running the Disk Imager program, click on the blue folder to choose the.img file you extracted in step 5. Choose the file letter associated with your clean and empty USB drive, and click on ‘Write‘. Accept the warning that shows up. 8. Put the USB drive in any computer that you want to test out Chromium OS on. Restart the computer and choose the boot settings before Windows launches. On most machines, this is done by hitting f12 as soon as you turn on or restart a computer. You have to move quick here and other f keys may be needed depending on your computer. 9. Select the option to boot from USB. 10. Login using your Google account or Google Apps account. Welcome to Chromium!
