Chrome OS Zero VM Image Available

flattr this!

chromezero2One of the problems that I experienced with Chrome OS Zero is that I was unable to get the image that Hexxeh released to work in either VMWare or VirtualBox. I spent an entire morning over the weekend banging my head to no avail, although it’s possible I couldn’t get it to work because of said head-banging. Fortunately, Hexxeh now has a VM image up on his site, so for those of you wanting to run Chrome OS Zero using VMWare, here is your chance!

Note: According to Hexxeh’s Twitter account, this doesn’t appear to work with Sun’s VirtualBox. I assumed he tried it after converting it into a vdi file since his site is hosting a vmdk file. Oh Well.

    I think Elena is a spam bot.
