    How to get permission for step 5?

    Hey Jose-if you're prompted, the password for step 5 should be the same as the password for login in step two "chrome."

    After logging in, entered command “sudo fdisk –l”, prompted for password. Entered password “chrome”, device listings appeared. Entered command “dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sda” – replaced “x” with “a” as per device listings. Appeared: “dd: failed to open ‘/dev/sda’: Permission denied”. What’s the next step? How can I get permission?

    Okay, got it! You'll need to use "sudo" in front of the command in order for it to prompt for access permission.

    the new command would read:
    "sudo dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sd[X]"

    It worked. Thanks for the assistance. Sorry, but have to leave CloudReady, The features/ apps that I need are not available. Great for web surfing and other online works, though.

    Hi, I use hp stream 13, and I want to uninstall the OS because I can only find and use the very first Wifi connects to when I install the OS. It can not find any other WIF.
    My problem with the uninstall is: my device listing is not in the form of sd[X], but it's in mmcblk0p1, mmblk0p2, .......
    Even after I input the code:
    sudo dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/mmcblk0p
    the computer does not reset after it done, but instead show a list like this:
    /dev/mmcblk0p1 7 7 1 512B ChromeOS reserved
    /dev/mmcblk0p1 2 d
    /dev/mmcblk0p1
    /dev/mmcblk0p1
    /dev/mmcblk0p
    /dev/mmcblk0p
    /dev/mmcblk0p ChromeOS
    /dev/mmcblk0p
    /dev/mmcblk0p
    /dev/mmcblk0p2
    /dev/mmcblk0p2
    /dev/mmcblk0p2

    PLEASE HELP! THANK YOU!

    There's no need of following all those steps mentioned above. If you just wanna go back to Windows, all you need to do is have you windows iso on a thumb drive or a DVD.
    . Go to the boot menu
    . Select boot drive USB/CD ROM
    . Begin windows installation
    . Select custom install
    . When you'd want to select a partition, what you'd see is your HDD or SSD divided into 27 partitions.
    . Delete all the partitions until you just have 1 partition left that says "unallocated" Disk 0
    . Divide your Disk 0 into the number of partitions you want
    . Windows would create it's own recovery partitions
    . Select the disk that says "primary"
    . Click Next to continue with the installation

    If the procedure mentioned above does not work on your PC, try this.

    Can someone help me uninstall the standalone version of CloudReady? I've read all the steps above, but I can't access the mentioned command line by holding Ctrl+Alt+F2. Am I missing something? Do I do this while logged in or from the boot screen? Nothing I try works.

    If you intend on installing windows just insert the disk or a USB drive. Go to the boot menu and select usb/cd-dvd. Follow the steps and then in the drive selection menu you'd find around 25-27 partitions of your HDD. Delete them all and then you're good to go.

    In step 5, you do not enter the brackets into the line. For example, what I entered was, "sudo dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sda" Yours might be, "dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdb" Again all of this is on step 5. Give it time to complete and there you go, a freshly wiped HDD.

    Help! After step 5 it says: dd: failed to open '/sda': Read-only file system

    I also tried with the sudo command in front. Same result.

    Hey all - sorry these instructions have had gaps for so long.

     

    The update I just made should clear things up significantly.
