Hi, another solution. Found this question here

http://ask.cloudbase.it/question/232/openstack-launch-instance-hangs-on-getting-metadata/?answer=258#post-id-258

This lead me to investigate the mtu and it turned out it was set to 1500. It seems that windows ignores mtu information provided by the dhcp server. Did not found any solution how to enable this. So i decided to set it manually to 1458, using

netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "Ethernet" mtu=1458 store=persistent

This seems to solve the problem even with provided key-pair. I will now try to build an windows image with preset mtu of 1458.

This I am using GRE tunnels in my setuo, so this lead me to investigate the mtu and it turned out it using

netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces

Edit: Ok, I builded a windows server 2012 R2 image following the official openstack documentation and before 7.) running cloudbasinit.msi, I set the mtu of interface Ethernet to 1458 by

interface ipv4 set subinterface "Ethernet" mtu=1458 store=persistent

With the so build image everything works fine. First boot succeeds, Webaccess from an instanced created from this image works fine. Stefan
