I'm just about to get underway in getting rid of chromeOS and installing GalliumOS.
I'm a total noob and while there are guides I've been following, are there any pitfalls I should look out for?
For example, I put the ROM onto a USB 3.0 memory stick using Win32DiskImager. I used this before when flashing raspian onto an SD card for a RPi.
I distinctly remember having to format the SD card first. I did not do this for the USB, I just went straight ahead to the W32DiskImager.
Do they actually matter?
