What I would do is a mock up of the guide to shrink the partitions, once you get them shurnk then I'd install Ubuntu. Just so you can have the ChromeOS on their without hindrance and when you go to flash back to the update it works. It might just work with regular partition resizing too... lol I guess you'll find out! lol

Yeah, ima reflash it to Mario firmware, then make sure the drives are partitioned so I can boot to Ubuntu or ChromeOS. I had to wipe the drive. lol.

If you flash the stock BIOS and overwrite the whole SSD, you can always get Chrome OS back if you flash the Luigi BIOS and switch back to Chrome.. It will download the whole OS automatically.

The way I see it, I have Ubuntu with Chrome (web browser) installed.. That does way more than Chrome OS does!

That's what I did. I got a 404 message.
This is great. Just great.

So, I have the luigi-run file, I just have no idea how to run it. I've tried sudo, sudo bash, sh, sudo sh. It doesn't want to work. Halp?
