For technical information


ChromeOS Device Firmware

The firmware used by ChromeOS devices is built around serveral open-source projects, and consists (mainly) of a hardware init component (coreboot) and one or more payloads (depthcharge for Verified Boot and ChromeOS, SeaBIOS for Legacy Boot Mode) which are subsequently executed. The firmware resides on an SPI flash chip… The shaded sections at the bottom are read-only, which is enforced by the firmware write-protect screw on the main board

Actually on this model, I believe there’s a switch under a panel on the side to get into Developer Mode. This will also erase the SSD. Also Chrome OS partition layout is crazy, with about a dozen partitions. It only gets more complicated from there. Have you looked into Crouton?

  1. Check for a physical write protect screw: Some laptops or Chromebooks have a physical write protect screw that can be removed to disable write protection. You can refer to the manufacturer's documentation or search online for instructions specific to your machine model
  2. Update the BIOS firmware: In some cases, a BIOS update may include changes that allow you to disable write protection. Check the manufacturer's website for any available BIOS updates for your machine. Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer to update the BIOS firmware
  3. Contact the manufacturer or seek professional help: If the above solutions do not work or you are uncomfortable performing the steps yourself, it is recommended to contact the manufacturer's support or seek assistance from a professional technician. They may be able to provide further guidance or perform the necessary steps to disable write protection on your machine.

It's important to note that the specific steps and solutions may vary depending on the make and model of your machine. Therefore, it's recommended to consult the manufacturer's documentation or support resources for accurate and detailed instructions specific to your machine

.Please keep in mind that modifying the BIOS firmware can be risky and may void your warranty. Proceed with caution and ensure you have a backup of your data before attempting any changes to the BIOS settings.
