Chromebook

Do you think a Chromebook could have ROS as it's OS? Of course it would need to have a x32/x64/86 cpu not Arm.

You would nwed to disabled the write protection by opening it up and flipping the switch. You will need to make a bootable USB drive.

Yes I know how it goes. But do you think it wouldn't commit BSOD.

Don't Chromebooks have ARM processors? ReactOS doesn't yet have ARM support, so unless I'm mistaken about Chromebook, it will certainly BSOD.

Most Chromebooks use Intel chips.

No, if ReactOS has no ARM support, it shouldn't make a BSOD since the bootloader wouldn't work.
And no, ReactOS has ARM support (only if lacking developers),

This is not a correction, only a questionable statement. Eg. most of my chromebooks have ARM CPUs (2x Samsung XE303, Toshiba CB30). Only Lenovo N22 has an Intel one (Celeron N3060 1.60 GHz).

@Reactions, I was referring to my own collection:)

PS. OK, my bad: Toshiba CB30 is x86 based.
