Hello! I have a little problem, I can't boot an ISO image on Nova. When I try to boot, I obtain:"No bootable device".image description

So I attached before a Volume of 4 GB, and I try to boot on, but I've same result.

I can create in a parallel to Openstack (with Qemu) an QCOW2 Image and then I can boot with, but Is not the goal that I research.

I would like to boot on my ISO image to make my installation procedure and Then I would like to use my Virtual machine like others launch before..

I tried an other solution:

Maybe the volume created before is not bootable. So, I created a new volume with the ID of my image: image description

Then I booted with my flavor, keypair and blockdevicemapping. image description

At the end, my volume is attached and bootable: image description

But I obtain the same result:

I tried lots of solutions but no one work at the moment..

Please help me if you have ideas...

You can add an iso image to glance, then create a Bootable Volume from an Image: Then attach the volume to a running instance. The Grizzly release enables you to create the cinder volume from an image. You may need to restart all OpenStack services after the change.
