Windows 7: Chrome OS

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Chrome OS

Hi Guys, I have a spare netbook that I never use so I want to install Chromium OS onto it, I recently cleaned the whole hard drive and I want to know if this is possible; if so, how?

Is it legal to do this because I want Chrome OS without paying 500.

Thanks Joe

Unfortunately, there's no legal way of finding a 'free' version of a paid product. Piracy is illegal, sorry. You can however use a different free OS such as Ubuntu or the Windows 8 Developer Preview (still an early build).

If I use the Win8 Developer Preview, when it updates, will it be the full genuine version?
