Can you install Google Chrome OS to a hard drive that does not have Windows on it?
you may undergo a lot of compatibility issues. i ssuggest keep a backup OS as well.
You could try Chromium Lime, outlined here:
Odds are, however, that the drivers won't work on your laptop – it's mostly for netbooks. Don't worry, though, because you can install Ubuntu, then install Chromium desktop. Outline here:
Hope this is helpful; I spent a bit of time on both these articles.
there is no much point of doing so.... you'll get crippled cloud os with lot of spyware... if you want something like this go with pepermint or joliecloud....
Why not give Joli OS a look, I find it more evolved and matured than Chrome OS and both in similar lines. http://www.jolicloud.com/jolios/download
Yes you can but Chrome OS is a cloud based operating system. So i don't see much point in that.
Yes, you certainly can install the Chromium OS as the only standalone OS in your computer.
However, I will suggest you to also give a look at http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/lime.php alongwith the official site you may have already referred to.
You may have trouble due to its very limited hardware support.
i think yes, but what is the advantage for that?
i don't think it is possible at the moment but a little research won't hurt.
you can get an open source build of Chromium OS, which may or may not work for your laptop.

Very interesting. Thanks for these link. I didn't knew this was possible. I have an old dell netbook and will try it.
Yes, very interesting. Even I didn't think this was possible to do.
I believe this is the best answer you can get. Chromium comes in two flavor, Vanilla and Lime, and you can choose which version suits you better.
