Re: VMware Google move
Thanks Ray. I'm thinking you may be correct if not for the problem of connecting the Chromebook to RADIUS WiFi. You have to be connected to internal DHCP server to even logon to the domain.
If the Chromebook has USB port, and I'm thinking it did, you could use a USB to Network Adapter to hard wire to internal network. Then I suspect you are exactly right when signing on to virtual Win session.
In our case, we needed WiFi so was a hurdle that stopped us in our tracks. It was also somewhat cumbersome that device wanted to connect to internet at startup with a Google account. On our internal network, you can not connect to internet thru proxy server without being in AD group authorized to internet, a Catch-22 with Chromebook.
These Chromebooks did not have this built in VMWare ability this article is about, maybe it would have changed the game a little bit.
So, where does the Windows license come from? Surely MS isn't let this happen for free? Most old Win desktops are, at least here, OEM Win licenses which can not be transferred to other hardware. Seems like you would have to have a lot things setup a certain way in your Win environment to pull this off.
