Thanks, I tried going through the steps by using a USB flash drive to create a recovery disk however i get an error when it trys to write a temp file at the end of the disk creation and when i try to do the recovery it says try again unrecoverable error. Is there another method to getting the recovery disk onto a flash drive? or could it be since im using Google Chrome on my PC that im getting the error? I tried IE 9 to create the recovery disk and got the same error.
I was able to create a recovery disk on the chromebook itself with a USB flash drive. Please disregard my message above. Thanks for the help!
