Warning: This page is for developers who both know how to build Chromium OS and aren't afraid to take a screwdriver to their computer.
The list at the bottom of this page is a place for developers to contribute information about which developer systems are known to run Chromium OS, including what functionality works and what is broken. Please include details only on systems based on Chromium OS that do not require changes to build (no additional drivers, new modules, changes to config files, and so on). Systems listed here need to run the first time with the latest, unmodified Chromium OS source code.
Please note that this list is not an endorsement of any particular system or hardware. This list is for developers to have systems to test and help other developers find hardware on which they can develop Chromium OS. We encourage all hardware vendors to to get their components working with Chromium OS. One of the best ways to achieve this goal is open-source, high-quality drivers for your components.
Also note that this list is updated by request; it can get stale, and the presence of a device here is not a guarantee that Chromium OS will run on it. (The fact that someone got it to run at one point makes it more likely that one could get it to run again with a bit of work, though.) If you'd just like to give Chromium OS a try, your best bet is to run it on a virtual machine, as described on the Running a Chromium OS image under KVM page.
If you have questions about getting Chromium OS to run or would like to help get functionality working for a particular system, please join the chromium-os-dev discussion group.
The list has the following columns:
Anyone signed into an @chromium.org address can modify this list. (If you don't see an Add item button below, sign in. One way to get an @chromium.org address is to be a committer.) In the spirit of wiki, the community is encouraged to remove inaccurate or unreproducible results. Repeat offenders will suffer the wrath of the wiki gods.
If you do not have an @chromium.org address, feel free to e-mail email@example.com with the details you'd like to have added below.
Note that all Chrome OS branded devices should also run Chromium OS. We won't bother enumerating those.
