Ok, I'm trying to create an instance with a tinycore iso image, but every time i try to launch an instance, i get "unable to create the server" error, anyone knows why? Openstack running on virtualized centOS 7

There are many possible causes. Start by checking Nova log files. The scheduler log tells you if and sometimes why a suitable compute host couldn't be found. If a compute host was selected, the compute log on that host will tell you why the VM could not be started.

There is also the possibility that the image is not configured correctly, e.g. it might be recorded with a format of "raw" rather than "iso". I am sure there are other possible causes, but again, the log files will give you details.

When you use the CLI, the --debug option tells you a request ID of the form req- followed by a hex string. You can search the logs for this ID to find log entries for this instance launch.
