Where can I get a Google Chrome OS .ISO file? I know I could install ubuntu and build from source but I don't want to do that. Are there any ISO's available?

I have started a bounty to this question because I really need an iso to use on my old computer that can't boot from USB. – Lucas McCoy Jul 12 '10 at 6:21
I know you want Google Chrome, but in reference to your previous comment, you might try Ubuntu or Damn Small Linux (just to get your machine up and running). – jrc03c Jul 12 '10 at 20:36

Hexxeh’s Chromium builds are supposedly pretty popular (and I’ve liked the ones I’ve tried). They host torrent to ISOs, as well as IMG files and VirtualBox-ready archives.

Here is a link to a virtualbox image of Chrome OS. I don't believe there is an installer for real hardware yet.

There's perhaps not a real "installer", but Chromium can certainly be run on real hardware (via USB or LiveCD). – jrc03c Jul 13 '10 at 16:21

You can run Chrome off of a Flash Drive. It's not technically an ISO, but it's pretty close.

this is more appropriate to post as a comment, since it doesn't really answer the question. once you get to 50 rep you'll see the gray "add comment" links below other posts. – quack quixote Mar 30 '10 at 5:50
I think it's pretty close to an answer. Moreover, answering questions is the best way to build up rep anyway. – stillinbeta Mar 30 '10 at 14:28
