Fedora ARM Remixes

Some ARM devices are not officially supported by Fedora because they require proprietary drivers and firmware that do not meet the Fedora guidelines. Below is a list of devices and links to [Fedora Remixes] that users have provided.

Make sure your Chromebook is in developer mode.

Press CTRL+U on boot-up, which will boot from the SDCARD.

If everything goes well you will see the kernel boot, and eventually be greeted by the initial-setup program.
