CR-48 hacked to run Mac OS X and Windows

We expected some fun hacks on Google’s CR-48, and, sure enough, some have gotten other OSes to run on the Chromebook.

Have you gotten your hands on one of Google's Cr-48 "Chromebooks"? Want to run something besides the Chrome OS on it? Some folks over at the Something Awful forums have figured out how to flash the Cr-48's BIOS and install Windows 7 or OS X on Google's netbook. The steps are pretty involved: you'll need to disassemble the bottom panel to get out the battery for one of the final steps.

Have a CR-48? Done any cool hacks with it? Let us know in the comments!
