Neverware CloudReady VM (for VMWare/VirtualBox) [FREE]
However, would like to be able to easily test Chrome OS on modern (relatively) high-end hardware. Preferably without having to dual boot. Virtual machines to the rescue!
Here is the download link for Neverware’s VM, it works with both VMware and VirtualBox:
Here are screenshots I took of the installation process and actually running the OS:
(VMWare Workstation 12 Player on Windows 7 Pro with i5-2500K, GTX 960, MX100 500GB SSD)
-Initially using VMWare, mouse movement is very laggy during the CloudReady setup.
-Sadly, it doesn’t seem that a VMWare Tools equivalent is actually available on CloudReady:-(
–This means CTRL+ALT is required to release the mouse from the VM
