Re: installing chrome book OS to macbook pro and macbook air

Chrome Operating System can be installed on a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air by means of a couple of dissimilar techniques, in a comparable way that Windows can be installed by means of a couple of dissimilar techniques. You can boot Chrome OS from a USB flash drive as well by means of a conventional build.

For this, check out Hexxeh. otherwise, you must have to partition your MacBook hard drive, and boot Chrome using BootCamp. However, since Chrome OS is still extremely much mold made for Chromebooks, drivers can be hard to discover and there may be bugs while using either of the above two methods.

And at this moment an simplest method to acquire Chrome OS up and running, is to make use of the virtualization software called ?Parallels Desktop?, which is a well-liked software for running Windows on a Mac. The most recent version of Parallels Desktop that?s Version 6, essentially has built-in Chrome OS functionality, thus it is strongly recommended to have this software for installing chrome OS.

Thus after downloading the software you have to installed in and Once ?Parallels Desktop? gets installed , you can get started with Google Chromebook OS.

First of all launch ?Parallels Desktop? if it is not already running, by find the way through path Finder > Applications > Parallels Desktop. You can see the picture mentioned below:

Assuming that Parallels is the active window,

select File > Download Chrome OS.

Parallels will request you to verify that you desire to download Chrome OS, and will then begin downloading Chrome inside the application itself, rather than any browser. It will take about 20 minutes, off course depending on internet speed and once it completes download Chrome OS will appear in the Parallels Virtual Machines window.

See the Image below:

Re: installing chrome book OS to macbook pro and macbook air

you can access ?Parallels Virtual Machines? by using the path
Window > Virtual Machines List, within Parallels.

After reaching there click the Chrome OS virtual machine to launch Chrome OS in a disconnected window. It will look like the Image mentioned below:


Chrome OS will be launched within the Chrome OS window. However, you can customize the virtual machine previous to the early start up. And for that use the path,

Virtual Machine > Configure.

The window will appear as you can see in the below image,

Re: installing chrome book OS to macbook pro and macbook air

leading setting up the Chrome virtual machine to your precise penchant, start up Chrome by hit it off the Chrome OS Parallels Desktop window Chrome OS and then Click to start.

You can see the Booting process is extremely quicker. You will be prompted with your Google Account login details. See the Image mentioned below.


Since you logged in to your account Chrome OS will load your Gmail account and additional Google account services. And that?s actually all there is to it. hitting off the Chrome icon in the upper left-hand corner will offer you a list of all of your Google services. If the screen resolution is off, or Chrome appears pram, and that time you should try to reinstall Parallels Tools again in your macbook, using the path Virtual Machine > Reinstall Parallels Tools.
