The following is a work in progress, of getting arch working on Acer's new C7 200$ Chromebook. From opening the box to an arch linux command line.

Installing Arch onto an Acer C7 Chromebook

Currently Archlinux does work on the C7 but the install process is a bit convoluted.

Enabling Dev Mode

First step is to enable Dev mode on the system so we can run some unsigned code.

Re-Partitioning

Next you need to make room for Arch by re-partitioning the Chromebook.

Create your own arch image via a VM

  • install vbox
  • create img
  • convert img
  • install arch into vbox
  • unconvert img
