Thanks for choosing CloudReady: Home Edition
Ready to turn your computer into a Chrome device? You're in the right spot.
The Home edition is our free version of CloudReady, intended only for personal use by individuals. It offers the same experience as our paid versions, but with two notable exceptions:
The Home Edition doesn't come with access to our Support team
Home Edition machines can't be enrolled in the Google Admin console
The tools and instructions below will help you install the latest version of CloudReady: Home Edition, v70.4. Now, let's get you on the road to using a better OS!
Step 1: Check your network & hardware compatibility
After you've done that, come back here and proceed to Step 2: Build your CloudReady installer.
Step 2: Build your CloudReady installer
To install the Home Edition, you'll need to create an installer using an 8GB (or greater) USB stick.
Windows user? Try the USB Maker.
If you're using a Windows 7 or newer computer, we recommend you download our CloudReady USB Maker. It guides you through the process of making a bootable CloudReady USB to prevent issues and save time.
Note: The machine you use to create your USB installer does not need to be the computer you plan to install CloudReady on, so even if you are a Mac or Chrome OS user, we recommend temporarily switching to a Windows computer to create your CloudReady USB installer.
After you've built your USB installer, follow the instructions in our Installation Guide to begin installing CloudReady.
Mac or Chromebook user? No problem!
Download the appropriate CloudReady image below to your Downloads folder (not to the USB stick) and then follow our Install Guide for detailed instructions on how to proceed with installation:
