When I launch a new instance and want do install a operating system there's always an error because no disk is found. Where can I search for error logs? I can't find any errors in /var/log/nova and var/log/cinder

Please create a new Flavours with both root disk as well as Ephemeral Disk , your root disk is being used by your iso/optical drive hence no disk found.

For best practices please create a vm on hypervisor & upload disk via glance.
