    Hi!!!
    I think as far as to my knowledge you can definitely install the chrome os having windows 7 professional.Obviously you need to partition your hard disk and do a clean install. You can simply download the set up for chrome os on to a flash drive and then from flash drive boot up your laptop and you will boot with chrome OS.
    There is no such problem in the dual boot.

    Hello,
    Yes can install the chrome OS in your laptop.
    But if possible dual boot it.
    And keep it as your secondary OS.
    As chrome OS is just the Beta version you might never know what could go wrong.

    All the best

    You can have dual or more boots in your laptop.
    It is advisable to have different OS in different drives.
    You can have more than one OS like windows, linux and chrome OS in your system.
    At the start up select any one of the OS to continue.
    you have the methods to install chrome Os above.
