Linux on Chromebook boot problems

Hi guys, I am new to the Chromebook Forums so if I get something wrong, please let me know.
I have an Acer c720 that I am trying to boot Linux Mint 17 on to. I have followed this guide
Turn the C720 in a permanent linux laptop Tutorial 1/3
step by step and everything seems to be working. When I turn it on, it goes to OS verification by Google, then switches to SeaBIOS, as it should. It then goes to Linux Mint from my live USB, and displays a message which says "Automatic boot in 10 seconds" and counts down from 10 to 1. After it gets to 1, it says "Not enough memory to load specified image
I have run a memory test and the result is that Linux Mint does not recognize any memory at all.
I have looked all over the internet and what I have as the only solution is to fix a so called "memory hole" in the BIOS. I do not know if that is possible with SeaBIOS, and if it is, I do not know how to access it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
