Some older versions of Chrome are archived here:

And, if its for personal use (you're not selling it) You can also 'hack' a newer OS on older Macs*, with this tool

Okay I've fumbled my way through and was able to erase, create new volume in correct format and installation is under way. The others I've got to work with better not give me this grief. I guess once High Sierra is installed all will be fine.

They'll be fine is you didn't 'upgrade' (dosdude hack) to Catalina.

 

if you DID upgrade, then you need to remove the APFS volume (with Disk Tools, from the HS USB) prior to Erasing the drive.
