I am using a CentOS-based OpenStack deployment and am running both Linux and Windows instances. I've used the installer from CloudBase for the Windows instances (Win 7 and Win Server 2012).

However, when booting up, the windows instances can not reach the metadata (identical log as specified by user "George", December 19, 2012 at 7:21 on )

Important to note is that the linux test instances DO get access to the metadata in the same deployment.

Because you say the Linux vms can access the the metadata service i think the installations of openstack (nova, neutron, etc) works fine. Is your windows instance has network adapter correct drivers? More simple, has your instance access to network or only console you can get? Depend of attributes in image you use the nova use different network adapter emulation. So check that your net is ok. Second think is the adapter to be configured as dhcp configuration because openstack send custom routes for ip if you use provider networks (this is not the case in tenant networks with l3 agent). Check your route with command route print on a terminal. if your metadata service works you must get correct response for url

1) Create VM with config drive.

2) if 1st does not work, check "netstat -rn" (it should be able to reach/added ?? I do not remember IP address by heart).
