Ubuntu: Ubuntu on Chromebook


So, I recently bought a Toshiba Chromebook 2 and have I've tried everything to wipe Chrome Os off the SSD or to "Legacy Dual Boot" to run a full blown Linux Distro. So in my efforts to get a full Linux Distro I created a partition which I have no idea how to get rid of. So, if anyone knows how to delete the partition or how to install a full OS I would love some input. Thanks


user68186 is right you need to flash your chromebook with a modified bios. Thanks to John's hard work you can now download it from his website.

The main steps are:

  • Enable developer mode on your chromebook
  • Disable write-protect so that you can write to the BIOS
  • Flash the BIOS with the modified version downloaded from John's site
  • Boot your chromebook from a live Ubuntu USB drive and install in the normal way (it's a good idea to wipe all the chrome OS partitions).

If you need a step by step process for this, see my post on wiping Chrome OS and installing Ubuntu.
