Default Chrome OS on 10V - no go? - 02-04-2010, 03:32 AM

I've looked around a bit and can't seem to find anyone else having this problem.

I downloaded the new Chromium OS from the Dell site, fired up PuppyLinux on another laptop, performed the dd command, but the USB stick won't boot.

It doesn't seem to show as a bootable device. There's an entry in the F12 menu for a "removable device" but not USB.

Since I have OS X installed, is it possible that it's interfering with Chrome?

I have a new 8GB stick I bought specifically to try Chrome and I'd like to get it to work.

Any ideas?

I think I read a discussion here of installing Chrome around Xmas, before or after. So keep looking.

If you already have OS X installed you may have to look at one of the dual boot guides.
