Every time I try to create recovery media, it gets to 93% and then fails with "Download Interrupted"

Verify you have at least 4GB free:


If you don't, you need to use another Windows, or Mac to do it. Or linux if you follow their linux guide.


Another solution is to go onto a working computer and create the recovery media there. The steps involve:

  1. Opening the chrome browser.
  2. Installing the official Chromebook Recovery Utility from the Chrome Web Store.
  3. Launching the Chromebook Recovery Utility application and following the instructions there.
