    Well the nice thing is with a live usb, all I need to do is build the usb and boot it.
    I can get a good idea of the OS without ever touching the hard drive.

    Well here are todays fails on the G1.
    Bliss will not boot on the G1.
    And it uses grub that will not work with the usb keyboard dock on the G1. Giant Fail for me.

    The G1 bios wont even recognize the FydeOS usb stick. Big Fail there too.



    POST 7999 folks.

    One more!

    Building a Linux Mint usb now.
    It is a version that has been customized for a MS Surface tablet.

    I’m going to install Bliss and/or Chrome OS onto the m2 hard drive (enclosure) and then put it into the G1 and boot it up that way if need be.

    Dual booting Chrome OS would be a real load of work since it creates so many partitions. When I checked out Cloudready, it created 27 partitions on my test system.
    Win10 might be your best bet if you can de-bloat, and tweak the services (black viper), not to mention blocking telemetry.

    Yes Chrome and the forks create a crazy number of partitions.
    I don't really care for that setup much.

    I am still experimenting with Linux, but I might end up with a stripped Win10.
