CloudReady Now Allows Dual Boot, Chrome OS and Windows Both
A number of notebook users have found reasons for switching to chromebooks – although I would not say that they are a majority. However, for those who are shifting to the Chrome OS from Windows, CloudReady offers a cheap solution, by letting the existing Windows OS based notebooks run a version of the open source Chromium OS.
However, until now the operating system had to be replaced which meant that your device would have to shift to the new OS completely. This changes with the latest update that has been made by developers Neverware that introduces Dual Boot.
Now, you can retain your Windows OS on our laptop and still use CloudReady on it to experience a Chrome OS experience.
Today is a big day for us here at Neverware. We’ve been hard at work for months to do bring to market our most-requested and most exciting feature since CloudReady launched almost a year ago: DualBoot! To launch dualboot, we’re releasing CloudReady v45.3 for use by both our paid users and our free individual users.
However, Neverware says that you will not get Dual Boot as an OTA update because it requires a “pre-existing Windows installation.” However, if you are interested in getting the update, you can download it from this link.
On the other hand, paid users simply need to ask support to update your link so that you can download the latest version 45.3.
