Is it possible to do this? All the instructions I have seen are about installing Linux side-by-side with Chrome, using Crouton. I want to completely delete Chrome and install only Linux. If I am able to boot off an installation USB drive, why would I not be able to install Linux, if the Chromebook's hardware is compatible?

Only one way to find out.........
I have Linux installed on all my PC's, Laptop and NetBook. I don't have a ChromeBook, but if I did, I would try installing it also.Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
To the best of my knowledge your going to have to run side by side, I haven't seen any methods to do otherwise.It's not important the problem be solved, only that the blame for the mistake is assigned correctly
Note: I have found instances where a distro will work on a laptop in "live usb" mode, i.e. when it's running off a thumb drive but will have numerous issues when it's actually installed on a harddrive.
