ok so i have a HP 14 in chromebook and i am wondering if there is any way for me to take out the 16gb solid state and put in a new solid state and install windows 8 or even windows 7. I have the entire thing taken apart and have access to the SSD.

It may be possible, I personally haven't looked into it myself.
However, since after some quick googling I believe you have a x86 processer so it is probably possible.
However, I would reccomend a lightweight linux disto over Windows. 1.4 ghz is not that great... I suggest installing Lubuntu, as it is easy to get started with and has the lxde desktop environment preinstalled. Linux is great on weaker devices :) You will also be able to play games such as Minecraft and Runescape since they are written in java.
