Install Chromium OS Lime

Warning: when installing a new operating system, always make sure to back up your important files from your hard drive, and disconnect any removable USB drives that you don't want to install the OS onto!
When dealing with partition tables and formatting to install an operating system, it's possible to accidentally wipe out partitions that you didn't intend to and you'll lose all your files. Back up anything you don't want to lose first, and I recommend disconnecting any USB hard drives to keep them far away from the disk partitioning process.

That said, onward to the blog post...


This information is ridiculously hard to find on the Internet.

I was playing with Chromium OS using the Lime build provided by Hexxeh. The Lime build is the same as the Vanilla build (i.e. upstream Chromium source code built daily), but it has more driver support, and it's the only build that works with the wifi on my Dell Mini 9.

Getting it onto a flash drive and booting from it was easy enough just following the directions on Hexxeh's site, but actually installing it to the hard drive was a bit more difficult. It was hard to find any up-to-date information online; most bloggers were talking about Hexxeh's old "Flow" builds, so the instructions were outdated. When I specifically googled how to install the Lime build, I was still finding outdated instructions.

Everyone was saying that you just hit Ctrl-Alt-T to get a shell prompt, and run the install command. Not that easy. The only way I could get into any form of text mode was by hitting Ctrl-Alt-F2 (which I only knew to try because I'm a Linux user). But this got me into a text mode login prompt and it took me a while to figure out the right username/password combination.

The username is chronos and the password is facepunch. After that, I was stuck in a really primitive shell that doesn't support anything I'm used to (not even ls), so I went out on a limb and tried running the command bash (which got me into a more familiar Bash shell).

But the install command was no good in Bash -- it was running the GNU install command instead of the one to install Chromium to the disk. After some more tinkering, I found that if I ran crosh (Chrome shell) and then run the install command from there, it did what I want. So, I was finally able to install it to disk.

It didn't end up working out though. The system doesn't boot after installation. Oh well. But hopefully this blog post will help others find out how to install the darn thing.

tl;dr: here's how I figured out to install Chromium OS to disk:

  1. Boot it from the USB drive.
  2. Push Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get to the text mode login.
  3. Log in as chronos / facepunch
  4. Type crosh, hit enter.
  5. Type install, hit enter.
Update (Mar 6): It turns out Dell has their own semi-official builds of Chromium OS for the Dell Mini 9 and 10v laptops. They can be downloaded from Dell's site here. I downloaded the Jan 3 2012 image. Following their instructions was easy enough, but I found a few differences that I'll note here: The install from Dell's image did the trick too, and I now have Chromium installed on the internal hard drive on my Dell Mini 9. :)

Interestingly, the UI of Dell's image looks different to the Lime and Vanilla builds. The Lime and Vanilla builds had what looked like a sort of primitive desktop (complete with a wallpaper), and the Chromium browser windows could be resized and moved around the screen. Where you'd expect the task bar to be on a Windows system, was what looked more like the Mac dock, with icons representing all your opened Chromium windows (plus a couple other icons, one that brings up a menu and one that has the Chromium icon and didn't appear to do anything).

Screenshots of UI differences:

Chromium Lime
Chromium Lime (and Vanilla)

Chromium Dell
Dell's Chromium build

Dell's build looks more like the Chrome OS I've always seen screenshots of, so I think maybe the Lime and Vanilla builds are customized a bit (or else it's just a super new UI change and Dell's January image isn't up-to-date enough).

Finally somebody with good UPDATED information on this topic. Worked like a charm on my Dell e6410 laptop Vanilla build.

I was stuck on finding the correct login/psw for localhost but nobody had that information out there. Thankfully you had all the info I needed to make it work.

So, how does one get this to boot once installed. I am attempting to install it on an old Acer AspireOne with an 8GB SSD. An older version of Lime worked great when I installed it at the first of the year, but this new build won't boot. Any assistance would be appreciated...

Ahh - the install is broken in the current images according to Hexxeh:

I agree with "This information is ridiculously hard to find on the Internet." I wish I found your site sooner. I -was- trying to find a way to get the Hexxeh installed on either a Dell D620 or a D830. I am running into the same issue on both machines, the Vanilla does not see the wireless or Ethernet, and the Lime flashes the Chrome logon screen then reboots. I downloaded the ChromiumOS_x86_Jan3_2012.img.gz that worked for Ethernet on the d620. Wireless still does not work on my Dells, but I am happy for for tonight, thank you for that! Now that I have a taste of ChromeOS tomorrow I will be searching to get the WiFi working. I have Zero Linux knowledge so I expect it to be quite the day from what I have seen. Thanks again!

*Sigh* I keep getting OS Not Found when I try to boot. The only way I deviated from the instructions was that I used an 8G and not a 4G USB. I tried writing the USB from two different LINUX boxes, a Mac, and Windows 7. Anyone else have this issue?

It seems that recent builds of Chromium (after February 2012) don't work properly when installed to the hard drive. So, either find an older build that does work or cross your fingers and wait for the Chromium developers to fix this problem.

2. download Version 1384.0.ra19cf6e2 USB Built on 2nd of December 2011

3. did as stated above and all works well!

(Tried installing from WD external and it didn't work and then from a 2gb usb and it worked as designed)

Mini 9, I'm trying to install Chromium for the first time, finally got a bootable USB key (had to try a couple different versions of win32diskimager--had no OS found problem many times too, also tried different USB keys), and it boots! Cool, so I want it on the HD...

Seeing how the dell user never worked for me, I logged in using my gmail account (had to plug in network cable first time, then got WiFi working), install seemed to work fine (used dell1234 password) but when I reboot without the USB stick I get a black screen, machine does nothing... until I plug in the USB--then it boots right up!

Suggestions? Trying the ctrl-alt-f2 and login as chronos then install... looks to be the same black screen. It's not hung, responds instantly to ctrl-alt-del...

Suggestions?

Much appreciated, it seems that the installation method keeps changing with Hexxeh's builds (which is annoying as hell) and I was worried this would be as difficult as FreeBSD.

However when I got to installing RootFS (1.4.2) because of "losetup error:/dev/sdb/loop0: Check device isn't being used" or something like that.

Just so everyone knows, there is a solution to the black screen if you are installing the April 15 Dell build onto a Dell Mini.

It can be found at: http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/google-chrome-os/28131-nice-new-chromeos-dell-4-15-2012-install-solid-state-drive-issue.html

Just in case there is an issue with the link, this is the solution:

Install to HD then reboot and login with your account
start a terminal with ctrl+alt+t
>shell
>sudo -s and give password dell1234
>cd /media/removable/External\ Drive\ 2/syslinux/
>vim usb.A.cfg
change root=/dev/sdb3 to root=/dev/sda3
press esc
and :wq to save the file

then exit the shell and shutdown

Please note that I did not come up with this solution, but I can confirm that it works! I hope this helps someone out there.

I initially had trouble installing both the lime and vanilla builds on my Acer Aspire One A0A 110 like one of the previous posters. Running it from a usb flash drive worked fine but when I tried to install it to my 8gb ssd, the Acer booted to a blank screen.

Based on the suggestions above, I downloaded the Dec 2, 2011 lime build and I was able to successfully install chromium os to my little acer.

Right now I'm a happy camper b/c it does everything I need which is surf the web, check facebook and occasionally play a youtube video.

Posted on Thursday, July 12 2012 @ 02:23 PM by Jamie Morris.

almajid, it sounds like chromeos wrote it's bootloader to the mbr. You're going to need your windows install disc to do startup repair. Try this:
-start up from your windows install disk
-hit shift F10 and type "diskpart.exe" without quotes of course
-type "select disc 0"
-type "select partition 1" which should be your windows partition
-type "active"

and then quit. You should be able to boot into windows, if not just try doing startup repair a few times.

Should it be possible for me to install Chromium OS to my Samsung NP-Q430 laptop? I've tried your instructions for the January 2012 and April 2012 dell images, as well as the latest Lime version. Farthest I've gotten is with the January Dell image. I'm able to install chromium to the HDD but when it loads, it blinks at the login screen several times and then goes to a black screen. Only thing I can do from there is ctrl+alt+f2. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Posted on Tuesday, July 24 2012 @ 04:40 AM by fak3r.

And the only issue I haven't been able to solve is wake from sleep. If I leave the laptop open and it falls asleep, or if I close the lid and it goes to sleep, it never recovers when I open it again. The 'pulse' light goes solid, so that feels right, but the screen stays black regardless of how many keys on the keyboard I mash, trackpad clicking, etc. I see it was an issue with earlier builds, but it feels like this one should be far past that. I'm on the Dell Mini 9 again if that helps - anyone have this working, or know of a work around? Thanks

I don't know if this has been said before, but the reason Dell's Chrome OS looks different is because that's what Google are now developing it to be. I believe Hexxah is in progress of building the version with movable windows.

....not as fast as expected, despite de SSD, transitions betwen tabs are not as fast as i expected, most youtube videos ask for plugins, tabs freeze until you hit any key..... maybe lack of memory, the netbook only has 1GB, may try with other module see what happens.......stay tune.

Posted on Sunday, December 02 2012 @ 05:29 PM by Chris.

I have an HP mini 210-1010nr with the broadcom 4315 wireless card in it. I was able to successfully boot with wireless support out of the box with the December build of Lime. Vanilla did not have the drivers at all, so no Vanilla builds worked. Any of the newer Lime versions did not successfully load the wireless drivers either. However, the December load of Lime does not have the groovy desktop that I find nice, so I ended up going with the April 15th image from dell image. I did get the blank screen after reboot and did have to use by Matt above (THANKS MATT!) for someone named ":)" above having a hard time finding the directory, instead of typing shell type bash to drop to a bash shell. Then manually navigate to the directory one level at a time, so "cd media, cd removeable" etc and use the bash tab key function to get there, then once you get to the External Drive level use bash tab completion and mess with the \ 2 until you get it. If you do an ls in the removeable directory you should see it there. The solution works. Additionally afaik the /etc/intall_wl.sh is only available in the dell version. Also make sure you are doing sudo /etc/intall_wl.sh so you have proper permission to modify the files. So the moral of story is use trial and error to find an image that works for you. Afterwards, a couple tweaks are required to get it to install on the HD.

GOOD LUCK!

*EDIT* I got the april 15th version from Dell to load the wireless drivers just like the author, by running the sudo /etc/intall_wl.sh. I would also like to note that even though the December build of Lime loaded my wireless driver....it would not automatically scan for available networks and when I manually added an SSID the WPA auth failed. The April build from dell scanned the networks and has the cool UI that the author noted above.

@steve: are you installing it from a USB drive? The "source does not look like a removable device: /dev/sdb" would sound like /dev/sdb isn't a flash drive (usually, /dev/sda is the internal hard disk, and /dev/sdb is the flash drive you're currently running chromium from).

I'm trying to install this on a samsung seris 9 (np900x1a 11"). Most things work great, boots in 8 seconds and runs smoothly. However, I'm unable to get wifi working with the latest vanilla build, and the latest dell build won't boot. I tried installing the vanilla build and putting the dell build on a USB stick and poking around on the USB stick to find the install_wl.sh script, but I couldn't get it to mount anything on the USB stick.

Also, I can't find the lime builds anywhere. It looks like Hexxeh is not making them any more, and I can't even find any of the older builds. Does anyone have a late-ish lime build they're willing to upload to some place so I can download it?

Alex,

If you read anything about installing this to your HDD, if you did install it without setting it to dual boot, you wiped your Windows installation.

If you did configure it to dual boot, boot from your Windows 7 DVD and do a system repair.

Currently running on USB.

No luck running as dell but once I hooked it up to ethernet
was able to log in with my google account and then bring up the shell to run the install.
Wireless is now working but brightness and sound controls not functional, neither is sound at all. Not going to install it to HD as it's not functional enough to make it worth wiping my HD. but so far, so good.

Hi,

I was hoping to try out Chromium on my HP Mini 210-1011EA so I put vanilla onto a USB. Unfortunately Vanilla doesn't detect my network, would I be right in thinking lime has better Broadcom compatibility?

I tried to download it from Hexxeh but I can't locate a download . From what I can gather he appears to have laid Lime to rest for the time being so would anyone be able to point me to a copy or send on to me?

Thanks,
Nick

Trying to coax Lime to boot on Lenovo S205. From Nikos & Jo's posts above, URL for Lime build 2237 is as below. The download worked for me.

@Ansel Corona:
This is a security feature of Linux. There is no fault with your keyboard. Just type the password carfully when prompted (You'll see nothing appear on screen) and then hit enter. If you typed it wrong it will tell you, if not then it was entered correctly :)

Also there's a Dell build here from February 30th, 2013. (http://linux.dell.com/files/cto/)
Following your steps in this build enabled full wifi support for me on my Dell Inspiron N5010. Also it has the newer, cleaner UI present in Hexxeh's builds.

Everything works well after following your steps, thanks a lot for them! My touchpad acts a bit odd (mouse disappears a lot, low sensitivity despite setting it to highest in setting, two finger scrolling goes way too fast) but these aren't big problems really, a USB mouse would probably resolve it.

Thank you! Your reminder of Ctrl-Alt-Fx for console got me thinking and where I had some screen flashing and an apparently worthless boot screen (still seeing Dell bios post messages), I now have a proper terminal for installing!

Using the method in the post, I end up with:

crosh> install
Unknown command: 'install'

The same thing happens if I use the Ctrl-Alt-T window.
