How can I have my computer boot from an Android phone (ex. Nexus One) into ChomeOS?

Since my Nexus One can act as a Removal Drive, is it possible to create a bootable partition on its SDCard and load a ChromeOS build?

Android and ChomeOS are different things. You'd be better off just installing ChromeOS on your computer or to a flash drive. – nhinkle Jun 16 '11 at 22:56
Android smartphone doe not boot from the sd-card at all. The bootloader is always installed on the internal flash system. – Robert Feb 26 '12 at 20:24

Absolutely possible. I boot a menu with a choice of five different Linux distros directly from my (removable) SD card.

All you have to do is download YUMI. It is a wizard that lets you add as many OSes you want.

YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer), is the successor to MultibootISOs. It can be used to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more
