Announcing the Release of the World’s 1st 64-bit Build of Google Chrome OS
My 64-bit build of ChromiumOS is called ChromiumOS64. Download your copy now!
Download link: www.chromiumos64.org/
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.
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.
