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.


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
