it's pretty cool that you've got ubuntu running on a chromebook! it sounds like it's running in a chroot though? and it sounds like you aren't having trouble with ubuntu, but with the chromebook? Can you add more details? If this isn't an ubuntu issue, maybe it can be moved to a more appropriate SE site. –  djeikyb Dec 29 '13 at 1:32
@djeikyd it was caused by Ubuntu, the error. –  Robert The Great Dec 29 '13 at 2:22
So...are you running ubuntu in a chroot? Are you booting off an sd card or something? Have you overwritten the protected partition and actually installed ubuntu as the main os? I'll probably have more questions, keep editing the answers into your questions. –  djeikyb Dec 29 '13 at 2:24
Hm. I'm still not sure this is on-topic, but we don't really have enough information to help you. Ubuntu might have caused the error, but it seems like it's a chromebook issue now. i.e. Ubuntu didn't do anything out of the way, the chromebook is just picky. –  Seth Dec 29 '13 at 3:21
Dang, guys just delete this after you read and comment. It was a 0x50 error meaning that the TPM chip is damaged, i have to get it replaced, im very disappointed how cheaply made chromebooks are, but impressed how Ubuntu runs on it, Thanks Everyone! Who tried to help in my struggle, but i'll just attempt to pay what ever the acer guys want. Thanks Again guys. –  Robert The Great Dec 29 '13 at 18:20
