Google: Chrome OS laptops won't dual boot with Windows

Posted on Wednesday, December 08 2010 @ 14:49:32 CET by

Google VP of Product Management Sundar Pichai revealed Chrome OS notebooks will not support dual-boot environments. Additionally, he also shared that live customer support will be available for those that receive a Cr-48 laptop as part of Google's ChromeOS Pilot Program.
While he wouldn't answer our questions about upcoming Chrome OS laptops -- you know, the ones coming from partners such as Acer and Samsung in mid-2011 -- he did tell us that those Atom-powered laptops won't dual boot Windows. In fact, he told us that "certified" Chrome OS laptops won't support dual boot environments at all. Of course, the Cr-48 has a root feature so it will likely be able to run Windows (assuming there's enough flash storage), but it's clear that major manufacturers won't be shipping laptops with Google and Microsoft operating systems living side by side.
