title: Installing Linux on the Acer Chromebook R11
---

## Requirements

* Acer Chromebook R11
* Internet connection
* Flash drive
* Screwdriver

## 1. Enable Developer Mode

* Power off the chromebook.
* Press esc + Refresh + Power to boot into Recovery Mode. The chromebook will boot to a white screen that says "ChromeOS is damaged or missing".
* Press Ctrl+D to enable Developer Mode, then follow confirmation steps.
* The chromebook will reboot to a white screen that says "OS verification is OFF". This is Developer Mode.

## 2. Disable Write-Protect Mode

* Power off the chromebook.
* Unscrew the back cover and remove the write-protect screw, then screw the cover back on.

## 3. Flash Firmware

* Power on the chromebook, sign in or browse as guest, then press Ctrl+Alt+T to enter crosh. Type "shell" and hit Enter.
* Enter the following command and choose option 3.

```sh
cd; curl -LO https://mrchromebox.tech/firmware-util.sh && sudo bash firmware-util.sh
```

## 4. Download GalliumOS

* Enter the following command to download GalliumOS:

```sh
curl -o galliumos.iso https://galliumos.org/releases/3.1/galliumos-3.1-braswell.iso
```

* Plug in your flash drive and identify it using "lsblk". It is *very important* to get this right.
* Unmount your flash drive with "sudo umount -fq /dev/sda", replacing "sda" with the name of your drive.
* Write GalliumOS to the flash drive, replacing "sda" with the name of your drive:

```sh
sudo dd bs=1M if=galliumos.iso of=/dev/sda ; sync
```

* Wait until writing is complete (it may take a while).

## 5. Install GalliumOS

* Reboot with the flash drive inserted. GalliumOS should boot automatically.
* Once GalliumOS boots to the desktop, click the "Install" icon.
* Follow the instructions to set up the installation.

## That's it.

You've successfully installed Linux on your Chromebook.
