    The link for the list of all recoveries doesn't work, but I need the direct download because the USB that I have doesn't want to work with the "Chromebook Recovery Utility" it pops up with a message saying that the download got interrupted. It might be because of my internet, but I think the direct zip download might work. If anyone has the zip files for my Chromebook "SNAPPY E2B-B8C-62A-O3Z-E6A-A6Z" could you please send it to me?

    Also, before you say, yes my USB has more than 8gb of storage. In fact, it has about 14gb of usable space.

    Thanks

    The download page is working now.  Sometimes it goes down.  It's managed by someone outside CTL (not sure who).  Snappy is up with this link:

    The Recovery Utility is awful. It created 10 virtual drives on my USB stick, and doesn't bloody work.

    Trying to install GalliumOS:

    I removed the Write Protected Screw from the back of the Chromebook.

    I tried ESC+Refresh+Power key to Enable Developer Mode then I pressed CTRL+D then pressed Enter to turn off the OS verification.

    1. Enable USB boot:

    Pressed Ctrl+D at the initial startup screen to load Chrome OS.

    Pressed Ctrl+Alt+F2 at the Chrome OS login screen.

    Login using the password 'chronos'

    At the terminal prompt, type: sudo crossystem dev_boot_usb=1 dev_boot_legacy=1

    Powered off the Chromebook by typing in 'sudo poweroff'

    Now on startup, pressed Ctrl+L, got the BIOS screen instead of Chrome OS.

    2. Install Gallium OS:

    Used this website to install the Gallium OS through ISO USB install: https://wiki.galliumos.org/Installing

    3. Post Installation:

    Chromebook rebooted and I saw the screen where it was written "Chrome OS is missing or damaged. Please remove all connected devices and start recovery".

    4. Recovery:

    Later on I tried Google's recovery tool using this site 'https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chromebook-recovery-utili/pocpnlppkickgojjlmhdmidojbmbodfm' and added that extension into chrome.

    I used model number ASUKA D2S-A3C-J4N-W6W-G3K-A72 mentioned in recovery mode. So created USB recovery drive and connected that USB drive in Chromebook getting message "the device you inserted does not contain Chrome OS".

    Same tried with 4 USB drives as I thought that it might be the issue with USB also tried Linux as well for creating the recovery disc. Same thing I am getting over and over.

    5. Wanted to re-install OS

    Tried to perform the same steps as I did earlier but Chromebook was not able to boot via USB. After that I saw that CTRL+L command is not working getting 2 beeps on OS verification Off page and then it went to that page where it was asking to perform recovery.

    When I am pressing CTRL+U then I am getting "booting from external media (usb/sd) not enabled." at top of the screen.

    Nor I am able to open shell mode again as not able to pass recovery mode or that page where it says "Chrome OS is missing or damaged. Please remove all connected devices and start recovery".

    I think I made one mistake that when I enable the RW legacy mode that time I didn't upgrade the BIOS firmware (I guess that is my mistake)

    I am stuck at Chrome OS Recovery mode. Please help me to get it resolved guys. I tried 2 computers and 3 laptops in both Windows and Linux OS to create this recovery USB stick but no luck. I am screwed here.

    Please help me on this. Please help.
