    Chrome OS install. No mbr image


    The following is the output of a Chrome OS installation in Virtual Box converting Chrome OS image to Virtual Box image, os.vdi.
    There is no mbr image in specified location and subsequently no os.vdi.

    Help!

    Thanks, Ian

    Haven't tried installing chrome os myself, but it seems like the easiest method would be to download the zipped USB image from here

    Unzip and use the resulting image in VirtualBox.
