I have a HP Mini that runs Splashtop OS as an instant-on OS and Windows 7 as the main OS. I've updated Splashtop through Windows 7 before, so I know it runs on an EEPROM or some other sort of flash storage. Anyone know how to put Chromium OS on there instead of Splashtop OS?

I don't think you can. Motherborads featuring Splashtop seem to put it on a 512MB flash memory. The Chromium OS builds I see out there need over 1 GB to work. – Chris Ting May 26 '11 at 21:58

HP's QuickWeb implementation of SpalshTop does not reside in flash, it uses files that are located on the Windows partition:

EDIT: Middle of page 3 on the HP pdf explains that there is a 2gb partition used in some cases:

EDIT: It's possible to dual-boot Chromium OS and Windows:
