Okay so I have been having a nightmare trying to get Windows Images to boot up. I have followed all possible combinations I have come across on how to make a Windows Image for OpenStack with virtio drivers and I have been coming up with no luck. I feel like there is not enough documentation anywhere because everyone tells you how to make it but not how to get it up. I have errored out everytime I try to boot up from nova-boot or horizon. I have tried to make custom flavors for Windows Images with ephemeral disks but still nothing. But After going through my logs, I have narrowed it down to something to do with disk spaces and maybe missing flags in my nova.conf file as of right now this is what I have....

The lines that stand out the most to me are these two

It was disk space. I mounted drives to add more space to the /var/lib where images and cache for instaces are stored. I found the solution to my problems here - http://documentation.atomia.com/SkyManager/12.5.0.0/html/ar01s02.html (http://documentation.atomia.com/SkyMa...)

IOError: [Errno 28] No space left on device I see the error message above, so you may check your disk space is enough or not.
