Windows 7: Chrome OS dual-boot w/ Win7 installed first

Chrome OS dual-boot w/ Win7 installed first

Does anyone know if it's possible to install a GRUB2-like program for the dual-boot, and if you can even get the IMG file written to a partition.

And it all has to be done w/out a DVD/CD drive and with only one HDD. Partitioning obviously must be done.

If you're asking for a link:
Chrome OS-Blog.com – News and support for Google’s open source operating system
You could try one made by a guy who calls himself Hexxeh:

Had a really recent version, but I can't find it again...
Those two are pretty nice too.

If you want to save some trouble by using VMWare, then yes, you should. I personally use a USB drive since the OS runs about 20x faster, but that's just because I have a netbook w/ a 1.66Ghz Intel Atom N280 which sucks! lol. I wish netbook processors were easily upgradeable like ram.
