    Code:
    WARNING: this nukes your hard drive
    
    Boot from the USB image you just burned. (If this is the first time you've booted from USB, you may need to go into the BIOS settings and change the boot order so that it'll boot from the USB drive)
    
    After logging in, use Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window and type:
    
    /usr/sbin/chromeos-install
    
    Note: this will ask you for the password you set in the recommended step earlier. Unplug the USB drive, reboot and you're there.
    Thats a script, so check it out to see what it says AND MAKE SURE YOU DON'T OVERWRITE YOUR HARDDRIVE.




    So check your mail on MS AOL YAHOO... it's a browser.



    If you don't like Chrome the browser, which is Chrome OS because it's better with it's spyware feature?????... THEN YOU SHOULDN'T BE HERE! Please stop thread jacking.
    Thanks! I'm gonna give it run, see what happens.

    Probably wouldn't download that, as "gos" and 2.0.0 have nothing to do with Chromium OS or Chrome OS...

    Anyways, I have been trying to build the USB image, but I am stuck at the step where you
    enter this command:
    ./make_local_repo.sh
    I get:
    Couldn't find these debs: apt base-files base-passwd
    etc.

    The instructions say to "sudo rm -rf ~/chromiumos/repo before recalling this script" if anything fails. Well I did that and I get:
    chroot: cannot run command `reprepro': No such file or directory
    So I give up for now

    You think Chromium has spyware? Since it's open source that should be well documented.

    good call, im missed that-then noticed 536megs and you mention Gos-heyt that's linux distro test run GOS from distrowatch.com.

    I have found a USB image and written a much simpler guide to install it to a USB drive here:
