Chrome OS running on a Lenovo S10

Imaged Chromium onto a 4 gb USB key, set the boot order on a brand new Lenovo S10 to look for a USB FDD first, and voila — I am running Chromium (and blogging).

Now to try this USB trick on a certain smartbook … Video to follow later. Fairly easy process involving a .tar file, Bittorrent, an image writer and simple instructions.

Why? Why not. If the wireless drivers worked I’d consider running Chromium and Google apps forever on this PC.+

Update:

Instructions are on PC World

Follow @hexxeh on Twitter, he’s the rocket scientist who figured out how to build this native-boot image(versus virtual machine insubstantation)

The login and password are “facepunch”

  1. I ran it on an S10-2 and a T43 with no joy on the WiFi. I plugged the Ethernet into the T43 but when running my ExpressCard/USB drive off the ExpressCard slot, it was too laggy to be worth trying to use.
