Hi all, I am trying to migrate VMs with Ubuntu 14.04 server from havana to Juno. I can migrate all my VMs with Ubuntu 12.04, but when I try to migrate the ones with 14.04 I got a message like "no bootable device" in the instance console in Juno. I've used the same method for both OSs: snapshot the source VM in Havana, upload the snapshot to Juno and launch instance from snapshot. Again, I can migrate instances with Ubuntu 12.04 but when I try to migrate the ones with 14.04 I got "no bootable device" error. Any idea?

This seems like it is related to the image itself, rather than the migration process. Please check the following in your Ubuntu 14.04 image: 1. are you booting from a volume? 2. if so, you may need to attach the volume in cinder before you boot the Nova instance.

If you can provide details from nova-conductor.log in /var/logs that would be helpful.

@echiu thanks for your answer. I agree that it's related to the image, but I can't find the exact reason for this error. For your questions: 1: My instance is not booting from any volume. 2: The logs from nova-conductor are empty, even if the debug flag set to true in nova.conf.
