Google Chrome OS Tested on a Dell Netbook via USB


If you’ve been raring to test out the early build of Google Chrome OS that came out recently, here’s a quick way of doing it. The trick is getting an image file of the source code and storing it on a USB key then booting your netbook via the USB.

It’s as simple as that, and the Engadget folks put up a video (which is rather a little hazy) for all of us netbook fans to admire and be awed about.

This is different from the Virtual Machines that were demoed to run the Google Chrome OS. This is sort of the “real deal” when it comes to running the Chrome OS.

If you want to test it out on your netbook (doesn’t have to be Dell), get the source file here and follow the instructions on this site.
