Chromium OS on a MacBook

Chromebooks are becoming more popular these days. Their simplicity is something that really appeals to me. I had an old MacBook that was becoming nearly unusable because it was so slow. So I turned it into a Chromebook by installing Chromium OS on it.

I used the CloudReady Chromium OS distribution provided by Neverware, and the installation process was really easy. The hardest part was getting the MacBook to boot from a USB stick. For some reason, my MacBook would not boot from my Toshiba 16GB flash drive. Using a Kingston DataTraveler drive fixed the problem. After booting from the USB stick, just go through a few quick installation steps and you’re done!
