The best way to create instances (that I have found), is to boot off an ISO outside of OpenStack (using virt-install), create the base image, and upload it using Glance. See the following guide for some help (CentOS images):

That's something I'm still working on myself. I have found highly customized Windows images to be a bit more complicated (growing the root partition, networking, etc.). You might find these utilities helpful:
