I thought I'd try CloudReady on an old XPS 13 (L321X, 2012 model). I'm unable to boot natively since the BIOS has no UEFI support. I'm also not able to patch the Phoenix BIOS to unlock the UEFI capability, but for now I've used the same trick as someone else in this community mentioned: use a Hiren Boot CD with GRUB4DOS to chainload the installer and after installation, chainload the installation on the hard drive.
But then, then I'd like to connect to WiFi. I can see the list of SSID's that are broadcast around my area. When I select my SSID, I enter my WPA2-PSK passphrase and after a few seconds the message appears that the network is out of range. While I'm sitting a few meters away from my router. In the dmesg output I see:
[ 621.466679] wlan0: authenticate with 8e:3b:ad:2d:25:27

I have learned that I can't edit anything in `/etc/` since it would defeat the purpose of Chromium OS.
The WiFi and bluetooth devices are enabled, I've checked that with `sudo rfkill list all`. On the router (OpenWRT) I can see this XPS 13 is authenticated and then deauthenticated on behalf of CloudReady, not because OpenWRT is denying something. The reason is "UNSPECIFIED".
Any idea's? Clues? When I hook up a wired USB network adapter I can browse the Internet (I'm typing this post on this CloudReady installation).
I've installed CloudReady Home Edition 74.4.58 BTW
