I have recently downloaded chromium is from Arnoldthebat but once I got on the welcome page of chromium, my wifi networks doesn't show. I'm unsure what to do right now and I know it's because chromium probably doesn't support my wireless driver. Any suggestions??

Noob in this Community, here because we're considering deploying a couple hundred PCs as Chromium builds in our schools this year. Want to eliminate a vendor for SIS integration with A/D -- which we can do if, for the first time since the year 2000, we eliminate all students from Active Directory. We're already in the Google Apps environment with a lot of ChromeOS devices deployed.

The concern, of course, is management. True, on Windows machines with Chrome we didn't have management of those environments as ChromeOS devices -- just user management. So in not gaining device management by lateraling to Chromium as an OS, we don't "lose" device management per se. But since our ChromeOS devices are all managed in our domain, we certainly at least pine for that, and not having it will force us to deploy Chromium PCs differently, probably, than our Chromebooks. 

Among other issues, our dozen schools are all special education (mostly behavior disorders / learning disabilities, only limited numbers of more severely handicapped students). 

So . . . is there any way to bring devices with Chromium installed into a Google domain's management? Barring that, what IS available for managing the devices?

Thanks to the founder of the community. And long live ATB. Definitely, please, long live....    ;-)

Arnoldthebat gets stuck on this screen when booting up or just a regular splash screen or in a command line environment..... Refuses to boot.....what am I doing wrong? Also I have an HP 215 G1 with AMD A6-1450 and broadcom 43xx wireless. Hexxeh boots but no wireless.

I don't think Solus OS is for older hardware. In fact if you read their website they say it is an OS designed specifically for the desktop, not the laptop. Although it is a minimalist OS / Desktop I think a bit of rendering is still needed. May be wrong.

You tried Xubuntu or Ubuntu Mate? Failing that you could try Lubuntu. 

I personally would install Arch, then XFCE.

About this community

The Chromium OS is an international community for those who wish to develop, test, or just plain hack Google's Chromium OS, the open source and development version from which Chrome OS is based on. On Linux systems, it's considered stable. NOTE Sharing of apks is allowed, as long it's free, or open source. For example: Skype (free), or Mumble (open source).

How would I go about including apps in a fresh Chromium install on a USB drive. I would like to have a version of Chromium on a USB stick that when you load it to a new machine & are a new user that it by default has more of the apps already included. So it looks more like a new Chromebook. I can load it from a Arnold build and it works fine but only has browser app & icon.

I am very new to Chromium OS and have read items at Arnold the Bats and the Chromium developers site but did not see this exactly. Any tips for search leads would be great.

Can anyone tell me if Chromium OS builds have the built-in security that comes in genuine Chrome OS? Also, are the only current builds available from Arnold the Bat?

The link is: http://arnoldthebat.co.uk/wordpress/2015/05/10/chromiumos-special-build-r44-7015/

Get a 4Gb memory stick, then after you have downloaded the IMG file and extracted it from the 7zip archive, just run at a Linux prompt in the download directory:

dd if=ChromeOS.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4M

where sdX is the USB stick's mount location (usually this will be sdb)

Broadcom wireless, trackpad and audio all working with full Intel video support This is on a Dell mini 10v. See: http://arnoldthebat.co.uk/wordpress/chromium-os/

Good luck.

I have a MSI Wind U100 and it works with Arnold The Bats build except for Wifi.  There is a video on DailyMotion showing Wifi working on this hardware, but of course does not say what build/modification is necessary to get it working.  Does anyone know what I need to do?

+Lauri Mäkelä​ you mean directly dd it to the hard drive? Actually it'll work but you need some tweaking to boot configuration

Hey, I have a little dilemma. I have a windows XP computer and I want to put chrome OS onto it. Is there anyway I can make chrome OS boot from a flash drive onto my windows XP computer, or actually replace XP with Chrome? Also, does chrome os have an offline mode?

+Andrzej Bieńkowski Trying that method you need to have exactly the same hardware as an existing Chromebook. The script makes you pick a recovery image of one of the current models. I tried this method with my Yoga 2 which matches the Pixel (1st gen) but it was a total failure.
