    I wish. Chrome OS doesn't even boot from my flash drive on my laptop.

    Although, I did get to the login screen on my friend's laptop. [​IMG]

    Is it even possible to run this off a hard drive? Why would you want to do that anyway? It's so light-weight, you might as well use some sort of flash storage.
