Announcing the Release of the World’s 1st 64-bit Build of Google Chrome OS

I have ported the development code of the open source ChromiumOS project to 64-bit. Google Chrome OS will be officially released in late 2010, and it will be based on the Chromium OS project.

My 64-bit build of ChromiumOS is called ChromiumOS64. Download your copy now!

I've used qemu-img to convert the WMware VMDK image to raw harddisk image. Then I dd the raw harddisk image to a 20 GB USB external harddisk. You don't need to use a USB thumb drive or USB flash memory.

ChromiumOS64 works on real hardware. I've successfully booted up ChromiumOS64 on my Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 @ 2.8 GHz, Intel Desktop Board DQ45CB, 6 GB DDR2-800 memory and nVidia GeForce 8400 GS PCI Express x16 graphics card. It can't detect the Intel GMA4500 onboard graphics though (X server complains no screens found).

I have been able to surf the forums and watch Youtube videos in HD on ChromiumOS64.

You could download the WMware VMDK image file, convert it to raw harddisk image and dd the raw image to your USB thumb drive or USB external harddrive.

The commands for converting VMDK to raw harddisk image are as follows:

$ qemu-img convert -f vmdk chromiumos64.vmdk -O raw chromiumos64.img

If /dev/sdc is your USB stick,

# dd if=chromiumos64.img of=/dev/sdc

Then you can boot up ChromiumOS64 using your USB stick. There's no need to install ChromiumOS64. Just run it like a Linux Live USB.

You need at least 9.5 GB free space on your USB stick.
