If I understand correctly, you dual-booted ubuntu and chrome os? If that's the case, just hold F8 on boot and select Ubuntu instead of chrome os.


I have an Acer C729 chromebook. The my knowledge, there is NO WAY to for the "legacy boot" as the default forever. There is an error boot screen and we need to recognized that either a) pressing "CNTL-d" - ChromeOS developer mode b) pressing "CNTL-l" (el) - Legacy boot mode is needed. If you've enabled legacy boot, of course.

So - on a plain C7 chromebook - I don't know the answer. If you clarify the exact model, someone else may be able to help.
