In cloudbase-init.conf and cloudbase-init-unattend.conf you can change the metadata providers and their order. For example:

it seems the issue with my image is not because of the metadata service. mine is almost the same with this case.

What i need to do is to not attached any private keys to the instance creation. the windows server both 2008 or 2012 will boot normally.

is it possible to configure cloud-init not to accept any private keys by default for windows? as sometime user didn't care if private keys are attached to instance launch workflow. they just click "Next" only.
