Subject: Re: Chrome OS on an old Laptop



Yorkshire UK
I would be careful with this, as it happens I was thinking along the same lines a couple of weeks ago - an HP laptop too.
I also could not get it to boot from a flash drive although it would get to an opening splash screen.
So I thought I'd try a full install but this seemed to nuke a working (but slow) install of Windows 7 and all I could get to afterwards was a nearly black screen with mouse pointer moving normally about.
So if it's working now beware going further unless you're prepared to do a full reinstall later.
I suspect the fact it won't work from a flash drive as it should suggests incompatibility with some HP models.
