    It seems to Auto-Download the Latest Version


    Can we have an option to select a Image we Already have Downloaded?

    I couldn't get it to work! It did download the .bin file and extract it, but it did NOTHING else after I let it sit for 2 hours.

    Also, yes, can we please have an option to select an image we already have?

    I also couldn't get it to work, sadly. I've used CR many times on other machines, but my Transcend 16 GB flash drive is not working to boot from after I used the beta tool. 

    Can I download the image near the Apple/Chrome logo to work with Windows? Or is it a different image? 

    If I have the correct image, then I can use other tools to make a bootable USB. 

    My computer is an HP Probook 430 G3.

    I also downloaded the x64 installer and ran it.  It showed the download process and the expanded something but then, that was it.  No other screens, nothing.  The flash drive is a 16 GB that was wiped of all partitions and volumes.  Not even formatted. Does it need to be?

    @Sarah Bose You have to format the flash drive with "HP USB Format Tool" or with "Rufus 2.17" to get you flash drive to previous state if you use to make a chrome OS installer i.e cloudready USB maker or CR utility.

    Worked like a charm for me (Dell 11n laptop). Seemed like it took longer than 20 minutes each time (usb creation and installation) but I guess a watched pot and all that...

    The tool never work. I ended up downloading the image and use etcher to flash it instead
