Agree with you. I got almost the same issue some days ago, at last I changed the image, and it became OK.

Also do you mean replacing the Compute image with this Cloud image? or replace the Cirros Image with this ubuntu cloud image? do you think the error is coming due to an issue with deploying of cirros image?

I did, but no use, the problem according to the log is really with the Compute, i read else where that this is a bug with Sandy Bridge CPU and that previous release of ubuntu server 12.4.4 is working, I'm installing that as compute and check if the problem resolves.

Fixed, i had missed one step in the documentation to change hypervisor to use qemu instead of KVM.

Edit the [libvirt] section in the /etc/nova/nova-compute.conf file to modify this key: [libvirt] ... virt_type = qemu
