I post this message because I obtain a strange problem when I try to create a Virtual Machine with an Image ISO on Openstack.

I will explain you my approach:

1) I create at the beginning a bootable volume with my ISO image. image description

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

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

image description

3) Then I boot on my Instance and I follow the procedure. image description

When I choose to replace an existant disk I have an error message: (sorry it's in french) image description

Apparently I've not enough free space

4) After that, I choose the option: Create a personalized partitionning image description image description

And at the end, I choose little partition of 200Mio (for the exemple) and I obtain the same message. image description

5) So I try to create a bootable volume more big than before. image description

6) I attached this volume to my instance image description

Then I follow the procedure explain before... And I have the same error:

image description

However, the size of my ISO image that I use is about 3,5G image description

Have you got an idea?

I have resolved the problem. In fact I delete all my Iso image, and I change my partition. and now I can finish my installation procedure. :)

You can simply convert raw image (ISO) to qcow2:

qemu-img convert -f raw -O qcow2 ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.img

Then import this image as QCOW type and continue with step one of your approach.

yes, I Have ever do this method (which work), but the goal of my project is to use a bootable volume to create my instance with an ISO image.
