How do I write a ChromiumOS image to USB under Windows?

Don't even mess with dd for Windows - I tried it and Windows just did not appreciate the process.

Cutting to the chase:
  • Download Image Writer for Windows, unzip and run it. [Author's page].
  • Download the .bin file for your build, and unzip if necessary.
  • Rename and change the extension of the recovery image from .bin to .img
  • Select your image in Image Writer, and then choose the drive letter for your USB drive in the drop-down.
  • Click 'Write'.
