Google CR-48 netbook hacked to run Windows 7 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard

We already shared Google's instructions for installing Ubuntu on a CR-48 Chrome OS netbook with you, but one enthusiast has decided to take things a step further. After all, if you can get two x86 operating systems running on the CR-48 why not try for three or four?

YouTube user Damis648 has managed to get both Windows 7 and OS X Snow Leopard running on Google's plain black machine. It's a commendable effort, though with the CR-48's limited internal storage you're not going to have much wiggle room left after installing either OS.

But hey, if "because it's there" worked for George Mallory, why not take the same approach to laptop hacking? Video footage after the break!
