    Default Duel booting w/ Ubuntu help

    Went to tech support on my college campus to see if they could help me troubleshoot and the guy behind the desk responded with, "What's Ubuntu again..?"
    I just walked out.

    Anyways, I will post all the details when I get home because I'm on mobile atm.

    Alright so I got my chromebook booted up duel booting the Chome OS and Ubunutu 14.04. Technically its called crubuntu cause its duel booting w/ the chrome os but whatever.
    I followed this guide here: http://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials...720-chromebook Step by step and it finished kinda quirky.
    When i launch the ubuntu os I can't use chrome or firefox or download any packages. It gives me an error but no error code which is weird
    I have no idea what to do because I've been trying to troubleshoot this for the past 3 days.
    Any help would be appreciated

    What do you mean? It gives you an error but no error code? Can you show us what pops up?

    then at the bottom, select your main hdd and click install. When ubuntu installs, take your flash drive or disk out and restart your pc, a ubuntu grub will pop up asking you what os you want to boot into.
    this is a chromebook. it doesnt work like that. I'm not booting from a flashdrive, it just straight downloads and installs the os from 2 commands.
