I have an Acer C740 Chromebook. I am not sure if this is a hardware or a software issue, but the Chromebook refuses to boot properly. The display powers on, but remains blank white with only the Chrome logo for an indefinite amount of time, until it eventually dims and then powers off. To make this issue worse, my Chromebook also is unable to enter OS Recovery Mode (
Power). It seems that this renders my ChromeOS completely impossible to salvage.
So I have given up on that.
So, my question is, is it possible to manually remove the Chromebook's SSD and boot up from an SD card containing Linux?
If so, would this occur automatically or would some action be required on my part?
Thank you in advance!
