ChromeOS Hardware Upgrade

Posted at — Aug 10, 2020

My desktop is a rock solid ASUS ChromeBox with 16GB RAM and 16GB storage. I recently tried to install linux(beta) but I simply did not have enough storage to share between Chrome and Linux. I let that go for a while… and now I’m back. I ordered a 1TB M2 drive.

The hardware installation took about 10 minutes although I’m [issed that the rubber feet are not sticking.

What was great was that ChromeOS restored and installed in another 15 minutes and I was up and running. Configuring my VPN and SSH keys took minutes and I’m back to rock and roll.
