comment Copying files with nautilus bottlenecking the whole system
But that doesn't seem to deal with the system lag. Everything to do with the system (TTYs, LDM, Unity...) practically stopped. This seems to be a more serious issue than slow copies, as I literally cannot use my computer as the copy crawls along.

comment Poor battery life with Intel i7
Good advice, my battery life jumped considerably just with laptop-mode-tools. However, when I applied the GRUB parameters you suggested and update-grubbed and rebooted, it knocked down the performance a lot, and no longer allowed 3D effects in Unity...

comment USB Ubuntu install not booting
Have you checked your BIOS settings? There may be something there to do with network booting... EDIT: Found this site. Maybe related: sites.google.com/site/datarecoveryservicesbystellar/…

comment USB Ubuntu install not booting
I'm sorry, I misread your post. I thought that there was Ubuntu on the box, which wouldn't boot after installing it over a ChromiumOS installation. Given that that is not the case, how did you format the HDD? It seems like you need to make a whole new partition table, using a tool like GParted.
