If I replace the chrome os Hard drive with one that has a Linux distro already installed will the linux work normally or is there something built in to stop it.

It's something I do with an old dell I use for checking out distros.

I guess it's too late to answer this question now, but C710 is not IBM PC-compatible so standard linux distros do not run normally on it without any modifications.

You can flash a IBM PC-compatible bootloader(coreboot+SEABIOS) on it to run other linux distros.

Any suggested source for getting the 4 Gb RAM upgrade? Does this RAM have a model number?

What is the hard drive called, or it's specific name, so that I may search around for a replacement, before taking my laptop apart?

  • Lift on the front edge to remove the panel.

Once you have the back cover off, you can insert aluminum foil into a tiny connector, which will allow you to flash the BIOS and boot any operating system, not just ChromeOS. Using this method, I completely wiped ChromeOS from my C710 and installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Definitely worth it, because now I have a sub-$300 Linux netbook with a removable battery, standard keyboard with CAPS lock (most Chromebooks don't), and no ugly Windows key.
