Installing Windows on Yoga 11e Chromebook?

2015-05-20, 23:00 PM

Hi all,

 

I bought Yoga 11e Chromebook for a high schooler in my family, and she was happy with it.

 

A couple of weeks ago, in her science class she couldn't access some web resources - I bet they written as "Windows or Mac only" web resources.

 

 

 

Now, I am thinking installing Windows on it, to make her school life easier - Because she is a student she can have a Windows license at no cost from government software centre for students.

 

 

 

The machine is still under warranty and I would like to know:

 

1. Will Lenove be helpful to provide me all the information?

2. Can I do this without warranty void?

3. Is it possible to install WIndows on Yoga 11e Chromebook?

4. Where can I find the installation procedure?

 

 

 

Thanks!

As long as you can enter development mode I beleive you can install Windows on it (assuming the hardware meets the requirements)

While it is for the pixel, the instructions seem to be universal for chromebooks.  

 

I'm not sure about warranty voiding though.
