It is pretty much standard hardware so all you'd have to do is to get
it start anaconda (i.e boot the install media)
I applied to get one, but I'm
not one of the anointed. I think you get
one if you are a popular blogger or tech-related website operator. IE:
I read an article that it is not really standard hardware, although
there is a "developer mode" switch on it to allow running code not
signed by Google that should make it easier to hack. I thought however
that it still wants to wipe the disk if you mess with that switch.
Something like putting it back in "normal" mode will re-install
ChromeOS. At least I hope it would since it would be real hard to get
back to using stock ChromeOS without a CD.
