I have run through the instructions and FAQ's

This is an Asus CN62
I have a dual boot setup (I think)
I created the Recovery USB stick
I powered up the box with the recovery button depressed
I was presentedd with the screen "Chrome OS is mssing"
I input the USB stick Nothing happens

So, then I figured I had to run the E-Z Script
But when I tried to Power and hit CTRL + ALT +  left arrow (F2),  no command prompt is offered

What am i missing... i am into my 3rd hour of trying to solve this ?

:-)

so use a different port/USB stick/SD card -- Recovery Mode can be picky about the media used.

no need to run the EZ Setup Script until you've completed ChromeOS Recovery, and only then if you need to reset the firmware boot flags in order to exit developer mode. CTRL+ALT+F2 only works once you've booted ChromeOS.

Yep !! You of course were right.  Changing USB devices worked. 

Having now reinstalled the ChromeOS,  how do I get the system to boot directly into Chrome  for Wife Acceptance Factor ?

use the EZ Setup Script to set the boot options back to ChromeOS default. If you're just using as ChromeOS device, then reset to factory defaults and exit Developer mode on reboot
