Run any OS on Chromebook
If Chrome OS is not fulfilling your needs, all hope isn’t lost. You can run any OS on a Chromebook as long as it has an x86 processor (Chromebooks with an Intel Processor). That means you can run Windows on your Chromebook or even run Mint Linux on your Chromebook.
You will need to have developer mode enabled on your Chromebook Run Any OS on Chromebook In order to run any OS on your Chromebook, you will have to enable the legacy bios with USB booting.
Overclock Chromebook? It sounds like something that should be impossible to do. However, with the power of Linux, everything is possible. The Chromebook doesn’t have the typical bios that you would find on a standard PC. Therefore, you can’t easily change the CPU frequency. Using Linux, we can achieve a software FSB overclock or underclock. For this tutorial, let’s focus on underclocking because that’s the easier thing to do (damn that click bait).
Install Kali Linux on Chromebook
Kali Linux is a popular security focused operating system. It offers a lot of…eh…”interesting” use case scenarios. To install Kali Linux on the Chromebook is very easy.

Replace Chrome OS with Windows
I love Chrome OS but I also realize that it’s pretty useless without an internet connection. Okay…maybe not pretty useless but _mostly useless._ I can’t game, program or do anything useful on Chrome OS other than browse the web. Luckily, if you are using a Chromebook with an Intel CPU (sorry Samsung Chromebook users) you can replace Chrome OS with Windows. Previously, I did a tutorial on How to install Windows on a Chromebook.
Hearthstone on Chromebook
Hearthstone is a very popular game which I coincidentally don’t play. However, I do spend quite a lot of time on my Chromebook and love seeing how far I can push its compatibility with software. Naturally, the idea of running Hearthstone on Chromebook appealed to me. After all, Counter Strike, TeamFortress and PlayStation 2 games work, so I don’t see why Hearthstone wouldn’t.
If you haven’t guessed already, we are going to be using Linux to make this work.
