CentOS 7.1 Instance does not mount writeable drive

I'm trying to create a CentOS 7.1 instance using OpenStack. When I create the instance from the image, I select "Boot from Image (crates a new volume). My goal is to create a new 10GB Virtual Drive for this instance to boot.

My issue is that the instance boots, but the "vda" drive that is created, gets mounted as a 10GB ISO9660 device, which I cannot modify or partition during the initial install.

Any ideas? I've tried creating a separate volume for this instance, but every attempt fails.

You can not directly boot from an ISO image. This does in fact mount the disk image to your vda disk.
see the infomation here http://docs.openstack.org/image-guide... about creating images for openstack
