This is likely due to your image having / (root) as /dev/sda1, etc… this needs to be /dev/vda1 for the image to boot properly.

Why /dev/vda1?

In the libvirt xml templates it specifies the virtual drives be made as "vdX" only.

So, vda1 would be the first one generated if you don't have advanced partitioning, and OpenStack can't boot the image.
