    Exclamation how to install chromium os to hdd?

    i need install chromium os from usb/.image to hdd but dont want to run /usr/sbin/chromos-install

    i try dd from image to /dev/sda4

    #copy rootfs to /dev/sda4
    sudo dd if=rootfs.image of=/dev/sda4
    #copy mbr.image to master boot record of /dev/sda4 (primary + boot)
    sudo dd if=mbr.image of=/dev/sda4 bs=446 count=1

    and change boot in file /boot/extlinux.conf some thing like this

    DEFAULT chromeos-hd
    PROMPT 0
    TIMEOUT 0

    label chromeos-usb
    menu label chromeos-usb
    kernel vmlinuz
    append quiet console=tty2 initrd=initrd.img init=/sbin/init boot=local rootwait root=LABEL=C-ROOT ro noresume noswap i915.modeset=1 loglevel=1

    label chromeos-hd
    menu label chromeos-hd
    kernel vmlinuz
    append quiet console=tty2 init=/sbin/init boot=local rootwait root=/dev/sda4 ro noresume noswap i915.modeset=1 loglevel=1
    Change the Lable of /dev/sda8 to "H-STATE" (extended)

    when i try to boot it can't ;(

    "Multiple active partitions."

    what i do wrong ?
