I have just purchased a chromebook, Asus C300, in hopes that I would be able to install ubuntu on it instead of chrome os. The other options I see are chrubuntu and crouton but neither really give me what I want as I don't have any need for chrome os and would rather free up the disk space.
So right now I have a 32bit copy of 14.04 on a flashdrive (I did it correctly via a windows machine). I turned OS verification off on my chromebook and entered it into developer mode which took a few minutes. But when I do recovery mode (escape + f3 + power) it says that the usb device does not contain chrome os. SO I'm doing something wrong but I don't know what. Any advice on how to proceed further would be greatly appreciated
