I have successfully assembled/built Google ChromiumOS from source and generated a VMware VMDK image file. I have also converted the VMDK image file to a Xen image file.
Google Chrome OS boots up successfully as a Xen domU/virtual machine in a matter of few seconds and shows a graphical login interface.

MD5SUMs of Google Chrome OS VMware and Xen image files I have created:
