Using a Chromebook to install on USB

    Hi there.


    You can both use the .ZIP and a .BIN file in the recovery tool.

    i preffer using the .BIN

    To avoid complications with unzipping we have, prior to now, always recommended first unzipping and then selecting the .bin file.


    Mikoto's right that both work.


    Upon a review, you're right, Mike, that there's a mistake in step 4 of that page - it should say to select the .bin file, not the .zip file. Happily, both work , which is why this hasn't been noticed till now.
