just follow the instructions on the OpenELEC wiki to create the install media, like every other (non-ChromeBox) OpenELEC user. There's links to the download and the instructions on the Kodi ChromeBox wiki page.

Quick and maybe stupid question. I have skimmed the thread, read some 10 pages but I must have missed it.
Is disabling Firmware Write Protect absolutelly necessary or do I correctly understand with it enabled I might still be able to have dual boot setup with 30 s boot delay? I don't feel capable of dissassembling my HP ChromeBox and I just would like to test this out before trying to find someone who can do that part for me.

deleted text - due to correction below....

If you feel uncomfortable in disabling write, search YouTube for some videos that show you how. It may ease your fears.

It is easier to do than searching these forums Big Grin

You do not need to remove the write protect screw for a dual boot setup if you're not going to change the boot options, though I recommend doing it at the beginning so you don't have to open up the box down the road. And even if you don't want to change the boot delay, you should use the script option to set it anyway, since it will prevent accidentally leaving developer mode (via spacebar) on the boot screen.
