    Is there a way to make SeaBios the default with in the linux side of things? I got a little hasty and compleatly removed my chrome os partiotion to make room for Xubuntu and any storage I could get out of the 16 GB SSD. Am I just going to have to re-install chrome os, removing Xubuntu in the process, and making Seabios the default from there? Also, if I do that and then remove chrome os again will it revert back to staying on the splash screen and defaulting to chrome os?

      Hello plovesee, i’m afraid so! Personally I haven’t tried. You can find my tutorial 1/3 and thats exactly how I made it. Have you tried to run chromium from a usb disk and perform this steps?

    As a soon-to-be owner of a basic Acer C720 Chromebook, what is advantage of doing this? Do you do this before or after installing Crouton? What does the screen look like when you first boot up after doing this procedure?

    I would like to be able to install a musician-friendly XFCE-based distro like UbuntuStudio 14.04 (or KDE-based KXStudio 14.04) on a USB 3.0 flash drive using Crouton while still having ChromeOS on SSD as my default OS.

    Is this possible or should I start with an older software version?

    Any guidance, links, etc. would be most helpful.
