I have an acer 516GE chromebook, and am considering trying windows on it. I believe I want to purchase the SOF/USB4/TB4 driver combo on coolstar.org, but as far as I can tell the price is $30/month. Is this correct? I would expect a one time fee for a driver purchase, not an ongoing monthly fee. Am I confused? Am I supposed to sign up for the $30/month, and then cancel it?
I have not attempted a windows install yet. I have experience with flashing the eufi bios and installing linux from usb. I have a bootable windows iso that appears to boot, and a windows licence key.
I really wish I could dual/boot chromeos and windows, but that seems to be impossible from what I have read. I tried out eufi/brunch based chromeos a while back, but internal sound (speakers and headphones) did not work, and I wasn’t able to figure that out. If there is any guidance on dual booting chromos and windows, pleease let me know.
