I have been working nonstop on my Acer C710 Chromebook since it arrived a few weeks ago. I have already gone through the steps of installing ChrUbuntu on it, and have been mostly pleased with the way it has operated thus far.
That being said, I would thoroughly enjoy running Windows on this device, but have reached (as far as I can tell) a dead end.
However, through my research, a question has been ringing in my brain:
Would it be possible to simply purchase a BIOS chip for an Acer Aspire AO756, replace the C710's chip with the AO756, and then flash a compatible BIOS to it? Or is that simply out of the question?
Soldering, flashing, and programming do not scare me, so do not rule objects in such categories as impossible. It's responses like that that make people despise technical support in the first place.
I believe I can construct the proper drivers from scratch if need be, and my testing environment is fully cabaple of testing this configuration. Intelligent, thoughtful, and knowledgable replies will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.
