    Hi Svend,

    If your installation is failing, try :

    1) Reboot and install BEFORE LOGGING IN
    2) If that doesn't work, check the FAQ for info on manual / cmd line installation

    You need to use 8G USB memory
    after you create LIVE-USB by 8G USB memory ,start it
    1)log out
    2)ctrl+alt+F2
    3)enter ID and Password
    4)sudo dd if=/dev/sdc of=/dev/sdb
    5)enter password
    6)it takes over 5 minutes,wait until cmd prompt come back
    Now you can boot from 8G internal SSD
    /dev/sdc is device file of LIVE-USB,it may be /dev/sdd.
    have fun!

    Hi
    New ver 44 update didn't come by air,
    so I re-installed by same procedure.
    It took 30 minutes to finish dd command, sorry it's not 5 minutes.

    Hi
    Storage size is about 500Mb after Installing by dd command.
    If you can set your Eee-PC901 to dual boot with Ubuntu or other Linux
    Gparted tool can expand last partition sda1 to about 2Gb.
    Your chromium OS storage size is expanded to 2Gb.
