Trying to install Chrome OS on HP Pavillion tx1000. I changed the BIOS to boot from USB before hard drive, and created a bootable USB drive (SanDisk Cruzer 4GB). No matter how many ways I try to make the USB drive, the laptop hangs on the startup screen, and trying to open the Boot Order Options freezes on "Fixed disk 0: ...".
On the other hand, without the USB plugged in, the computer continues, and displays "Initialized Mouse", and then onto the Boot Order Options. If you let it boot normally from the beginning, it starts up fine into Windows Vista.
I am using Hexxeh's Chrome OS build.
Here are the different methods I've tried for making the Bootable USB Drive:
- Hexxeh's Image Creator (for Mac)
- Making the USB device bootable (using these directions). I wrote the image using Win32DiskImager.
- Writing the image using Win32DiskImager (without making it bootable).
