Default Run Chrome OS on your Mini right now! - 11-25-2009, 05:23 AM

So there is now a couple builds of Chrome out that you can run off a USB flash drive. Read here for links and how to.

Chromium OS Builds by Hexxeh (user name: facepunch password: blank/nothing/empty/just press enter)

Download Google Chrome OS and Run it from a USB Drive

Basically download the image, install it to a flash drive and boot off it.

I just gave it a go on my Mini 9 and it booted really quick. Too bad it didn't like my wifi card. I still have my 4gb SSD I wonder if the image could be installed on that somehow.


Dell Mini 9:
64gb SuperTalent Double Wide | 2gb RAM | eBay bluetooth | Windows 7

Even better... a Chrome OS build specific to the Mini10v!!!

Chrome OS build taylored for Dell Mini 10v - GoChromeOS

I'm downloading it now.

Edit: The download is 7.5GB and I'm only getting 35kB/s download speed. This could take a while.

Will the 10v build have the wifi working on the Mini9?
