    Chris - are you logged in when install fails? Make sure to log out first.

    You found the right way to report bugs for sure - here is where we watch for stuff.

    If you're logged out and it still isn't working, try re-making your installer and initiating install prior to any config events like wifi etc.

    If all that fails, come back and we'll dig deeper.

    Chris, what USB Drive are you using?
    Sometimes, CloudReady (Chromium) will detect the USB Drive as an Hard Drive instead of a Flash Drive, and the install will try to Install to the USB thinking of it as the HDD. Unless the terminal command works, I recommend trying a different USB.

    P.S. 16 GB and More tend to think of themselves as HDD, so try a 8 GB.

    Hope that helps!

    You may have to use chromeos-install from the chronos command line via Ctrl Alt F2 . That worked to install CloudReady for me on Sony VAIO laptop when GUI install failed, see my separate post about it.!topic/chromium-os-discuss/m11hm_kdUUM!topic/chromium-os-discuss/vD_vQo54Ttw
