Default Acer C720 boots to black screen?

When I turn on my Acer C720, it goes to the chrome logo but then stops at a black screen. It's not totally black, though, as the backlight is still on. Why is this?

Okay, nevermind. I found a how-to on completely wiping Chrome and booting straight to legacy mode (Linux, in this case.) Obliterated Chrome OS and installed Elementary Freya (a special C720 build) and it's running perfectly fine, plus it's using all 16GB of my drive.
