Can I do this after I run the setup script? Or do I need any additional hardware, or perhaps the onboard wireless receiver will work, with good remote.
use the setup script, run steps 1, 5, 7. Use option #1 for the boot options. Reboot and install OE from the USB stick you created.

I don't see why it wouldn't work with OpenELEC. Someone with a dedicated OpenELEC install can test it out and see if it works.
I have the Rosewill RC126 dongle, remote, and a Logitech Harmony 880 that will turn it on from suspend.
OE powers off when you try to suspend it. haven't had time to look into it yet.

I tried to reset using the Google's recovery image but now I'm stucked at booting kernel after it told me to remove the USB flashdrive. I'm unable to change back to OS Verification mode on since I did the bios config for 1sec and auto boot to legacy bios. Any help or walk through would be greatly appreciated
for both dual boot options, you have to run the script and select the dual boot option twice. The first time re-partitions the internal HDD, the 2nd time does the actual install. I'll update the instructions to try and make this more clear.
at the dev boot screen (OS verification off), hit [CTRL-D] to boot into ChromeOS (hit it a few times with the screen off if it's not catching), then re-download/re-run the script with the OE dual boot option.

If you only need to run the script the second time...just hit ctrl-d when it the white screen first flashes... it should take you to chrome.
sounds like he did, but it's now booting into the legacy BIOS by default still. [CTRL-D] should be all he needs
