Follow this step-by-step guide to transform your Intel PC or laptop into a fully functional ChromeOS machine.

What You'll Need

1. An Intel-based PC or laptop: Ensure your device has a UEFI BIOS.

2. A USB drive: At least 8GB in size.

3. ChromeOS recovery image: Download the image for your specific device.

4. Brunch framework: A modification layer to make ChromeOS work on generic hardware.

5. Linux environment: This guide uses a Linux live USB or a Linux installation on your machine.

Step-by-Step Installation Guide

Step 1: Prepare the USB Drive

1. Download ChromeOS Recovery Image

  •    Go to the ChromeOS recovery image website: ChromeOS Recovery
  •    Download the latest stable image suitable for your hardware.

2. Download the Brunch Framework

  •    Visit the Brunch GitHub repository: Brunch Framework
  •    Download the latest stable release.

3. Create a Linux Live USB (if needed)

  •    Download a Linux distribution (like Ubuntu) and create a bootable USB using tools like Rufus (Windows) or Etcher (macOS/Linux).

Step 2: Boot into Linux

1. Insert your Linux live USB into your PC or laptop.

2. Restart your device and boot from the USB drive (you might need to change the boot order in your BIOS settings).

3. Select "Try Ubuntu" or the equivalent option to run Linux without installing it.

Step 3: Prepare ChromeOS and Brunch

1. Open a Terminal: Once in the Linux environment, open the Terminal.

2. Extract ChromeOS Recovery Image


   mkdir ~/chromeos

   cd ~/chromeos

   unzip /path/to/]

   mkdir ~/brunch

   cd ~/brunch

   tar -xvf /path/to/brunch_release.tar.gz]

4. Combine ChromeOS with Brunch


   sudo bash -src /path/to/chromeos_recovery_image.bin -dst /dev/sdX]

   Replace `/dev/sdX` with the actual target device identifier for your USB drive (you can find this using the `lsblk` command).

Step 4: Install ChromeOS on Your PC/Laptop

2. Enter the ChromeOS Setup: Follow the on-screen instructions to set up ChromeOS.

Troubleshooting Tips

Boot Issues: If your device doesn't boot from the USB drive, check the BIOS settings to ensure UEFI is enabled and secure boot is disabled.
