How can I install Chromium OS on my PC? I do not mean in a virtual machine, but actually a dual boot.

I know you can boot from a USB, but that is not what I'm looking for.

I really want to install Chromium OS right on my PC. I would like to have it dual boot with Windows 7 (32bit).

From Download Chrome OS VMWare image :

After Google announced the availability of the Chrome OS / Chromium OS source code, one of our engineers (Jon Ursenbach), immediately got to work on compiling the code, trying to see if he could get an instance of Chromium OS running in a virtual machine.

He was finally able to do it! You can download a copy of the virtual machine to use in VMware, VirtualBox, and on a USB drive here (300MB compressed / 700MB uncompressed, registration required)
