Can you check the hash of the image you downloaded? I have a feeling what you are seeing may be a result of corruption

If the hash is good then it may be your version of qemu. Can you edit your initial post with the version of Openstack, Kernel, Distro, and version of QEMU?

@SamYaple We are using Icehouse on top of Centos 6.6. And the kernel version is 3.18.1-1. qemu-kvm- qemu-img- Qemu packages are downloaded from CEPH repository. Because we were testing CEPH before.

Can you confirm that your libvirt_type in nova.conf is set to KVM?

Are you booting from volume or on local storage?

@alexpilotti virt_type is kvm in nova.conf And we had tried both ways, boot from Volume (CEPH) and boot from Local Storage (Hypervisor Disk) as well.
