running Openstack Nova on Amazon EC2 with LXC

Is there anybody having attempted to run OpenStack on Amazon EC2, in which Nova is configured to run with LXC instead of KVM? There seems to be some problem with accessing file system on EC2 instance, as the error message goes:

mount: block device /dev/nbd5 is write-protected, mounting read-only\nmount: you must specify the filesystem type\

Is there specific configuration needs to be done with the host file system (i.e. EC2 instance) or changes made to the VM image file?

Thank you very much!
