chromebox CB1-014 slow motion failure Chrome OS missing or damaged

HP Recommended
HP Chromebox CB1-014
Chrome OS

Chromebox CB1-014 begins a slow death spiral. 


"chrome os missing or damaged" message begins sporadic appearance - recoverable by power on/off for 4-6 weeks


then near death: "chrome os missing or damaged" cannot be cleared by power on/off


(1) resuscitated by performing Chrome OS Recovery procedure - downloading Chrome OS to USB memory stick then booting chromebox from USB memory stick


recovery appears to complete normallly


then after few days use, "chrome os missing or damaged" begins to reappear..... go back to (1)


after several cycles, run hardware diagnostics to see if any memory, network, storage hardware problems



call HP Support - $250 repair charge, bbbbbb uuuuuu ttttttt one can buy a new model for similar cost


is HP planned obscolescence for a "disposable" device with 2 year life????


is there a bug in Chrome OS software which causes this slow deterioration, not unlike a gradual memory leak?
