Chromium OS – an open-source development version of Chrome OS, which is a Linux distribution designed by Google to work primarily with web applications. In preliminary design documents, Google describes a three-tier architecture: firmware, web browser and window manager, and system-level software and userland services.
Historically, Chromium OS was using the Ubuntu-based Linux kernel for the first several releases, but have since then moved on to track the upstream mainline kernel directly, applying changes for the features and stability. The source code has been published in 2009.
Chromium OS “Vanilla” has been created by Liam McLoughlin “Hexxeh”, a 17-year-old college student from Manchester, England. He was building boots from a USB memory stick and included features that Google engineers had not yet implemented, such as support for the Java programming language.
He stopped building it in the April of 2013.

Inside this folder you will see a single file:
This is the raw disk image you need to write to your USB disk
I used the PCLinuxOS utility ddcopy to successfully write to a 16 GB drive.
I would imagine using Rufus, Etcher, or similar should work as well from Windows-whatever (XP to Win-10, anyway).
Good hunting. Be sure you have a network connection when you first boot.
