Guys I am quite new here :)

I just bought a Google Chromebook HP 14 and I am very happy to be honest.

But I do miss my Ubuntu OS :), and the options available to use aren't a real native OS system but adaptations that sometimes do not work :(

Does anyone have an idea how to install with dual boot Ubuntu alongside Chrome OS.

(I hope I am not repeating any questions here)

Thank so much for your time guys :)

Oh boy, it would be pretty much be the same as resising the chrome partition on your hard drive and then installing through USB, I wouldve thought – Compman Jun 10 '14 at 8:57
Thanks Adam, the problem is that I dont know how to change the BIOS in order to make Chromebook "read" the USB flash drive in order to resize and install Ubuntu. Do you have an idea? – user193385 Jun 11 '14 at 9:26

Thank you very much Ritik, however this is Crouton which is basically running Ubuntu on top of Chrome OS which realistically does not work well... – user193385 Jun 11 '14 at 9:26
