I tried ChromeOS but maybe the build I downloaded was corrupted because 
it never started on the VM.

In the past I made dual boot but with Windows installed first. Now my 
install has the full drive in Linux file systems. Resize, partitioning, 
formating, installing, no thanks.

Maybe some tips to make my VM (Windows XP [ue]) faster will be better.
