  3. When the transition completes, press the spacebar, then press Enter to return to verified mode.

  4. Good as new, the Chromebook will reboot.
  5. After the "Let's Go" button, You'll need to connect the Chromebook to the internet and accept chrome's agreements before signing in. If at school, connect to PSD-Open, if at home, connect to home WiFi. If performing these steps at school, the Chromebook will then automatically change to psd-closed after logging in.
  6. If you do not see "Enterprise Enrollment" at the top of the logon page. Or if the Chromebook was locked to an account, or not originally enrolled. DO NOT LOG IN WHEN PROMPTED, instead, press CTRL + ALT + E at the logon screen. Otherwise if you see "Enterprise Enrollment" continue to step 7. If you accidentally log in here, you will need to go back to step 1.
