    Is there any way I can make Chrome OS dual boot as the default, but keep windows 7 on there too?
    I've never installed 2 Operateing systems on a computer before, So I don't know how to Install a new OS without replaceing the other one.
    (A steam game under 4.06$ for the best answer.)

    yes, you can. You need a boot loader. GRUB is the most common boot loader. It seems to me that you are fairly inexperienced in terms of dual booting Linux partitions. The simplest way is to just install chrome os on a flash drive: [url = http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/] it's gairly simple [/url]. Actually installing Chrome OS to a hard drive is much more complicated. First, your going to have to install grub. Easiest way to do this is to install it separately from an Ubuntu live cd http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=224351 after that, you have to build Chrome OS and install it to a partition for it to boot from grub.

    ChromeOS isn't meant to be run from a hard drive. That's not the impression I got when I used it.
