Your Chromebook Can Run Windows 8. Surprised?

We have seen Cr48 running Ubuntu. What about Windows8, the upcoming version of Windows from Microsoft? Well, looks like it is possible to hack your Chromebook to run this new operating system.


Windows is everything that Chromebook want to save you from. Irony?

Please be advised, this is the most adventurous hack that you will do with the Chromebook.This involves opening up your Cr48 and making some changes to the hardware.

Windows 8 boots really fast on the Cr48, thanks to its SSD about 12 seconds. This will be an exciting experience for any one looking for some adventure this weekend.

Let me know how it goes, if you are trying this! Detailed instructions are available at article.

With the new Chromebook pixel, people have already put Linux distros on it. We will soon see Windows on it.
