My Windows Instance Fails: INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE

asked 2019-08-23 23:54:44 -0500

I'm trying to run a Windows instance on an Openstack host.

I prepare the Windows image using VirtualBox on a Mac. The primary slave IDE drive is set to the Windows ISO file, and the secondary master IDE drive is set to the virtio ISO file -- and the VM reboots just fine this way in VirtualBox. I install the viostor.inf and netkvm.inf drivers and save the image using Cloudbase-Init.

When I upload the image to the host, create an instance, and run it, it is unable to find the boot device, saying INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. How can I fix this?

I need some hand-holding here, please! Thank you.
