Installing CloudReady On An Uncertified Device




  • Luca Polidori

    I tried to install on:
    ASUS EEEbox PC (Intel Celeron 847)
    ACER Veriton

    USB created by Chromeos and Windows. 32 bit and 64 bit

    Three USB:
    KINGSTON 8GB Datatravel
    SANDISK 16GB Ultra Flair 3.0

    I formatted HDD destination hard drive

    Disable secure boot and fast boot
    Different configuration (UEFI, Legacy, default)

    It works fine with the USB but, if i want to install it,  always (both computers) give me the same message:
    Rebbot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key.


    Please, can you help me?

    Hi, can you help me?, please.

    I installed CloudReady on my old PC using CloudReady USB Maker utility, all is fine but I can't connect my wifi. 

    Before I read that after installing CloudReady, you would need an adapter to connect to the internet, because it is not possible to connect to ethernet.

    My problem is that I can not connect to the network, I think it is because it does not detect the adapter, since it indicates that the wifi is turned off.

    Already check the adapter and this works well. Also since I reinstalled CloudReady taking the adapter has been connected, but still does not work.

    How can I install the adapter or what can i do to activate the wifi?, because if I try where this time, back off again.

    Hi. I am trying to boot and install on Lenovo ideapad 320. My boot off usb just hangs. I have tried all the settings in bios I can see, can you advise if there is something I am missing.

    All I get is a white screen with cloudready written. On it. I assume it's something in the bios I am missing, fast boot and secure boots are off. Please help.

    Hi Boo Khan Ming - thank you so much for your feedback and for being a proud CloudReady fan!


    Hello, I previously installed the free Home Edition Cloudready on a listed Lenovo Thinkpad using 16Gb PNY USB jumpdrive successfully, not a glitch. Then tried to do the same thing on a Lenovo G580 (G550 is listed) and when booting from the same USB I get straight back to my existing desktop, instead of the install sequence.

    To note, the desktop access is passworded, not sure if that is a factor.  I had to redo (remake) the USB Cloudready installer as it became "corrupted" (?) after the above occurred (a rogue segment appeared on the USB and it had to be wiped clean before creating it as a Cloudready installer again.  Always did 64 bit.

    Want to try a Kingston and perhaps try 32 bit...or does this not have anything to do with it?

    Please help, thanks!

    Hello Haryadi, 

    I would suggest you post your query on the Neverware Forum as this is an uncertified model any other users who faced the same issues may be able to help you. We also strongly recommend sticking to the 64-bit version of CloudReady. 

    Thank You!


    Thanks Karthika Poduval, will do!
