Hi guys...

After downloading, unzipping and importing the Windows 2012 R2 image for KVM in GLANCE, I want to create a new instance in HORIZON GUI.

gunzip -cd windowsserver2012r2standardevalkvm20140607.qcow2.gz | glance image-create --property hypervisortype=kvm --name "Windows Server 2012 R2 Std Eval" --container-format bare --disk-format qcow2

All went fine, until I try to boot up the machine.

Console shows: "Boot failed: not a bootable disk. No bootable device."

So I tested the image in VirtualBox. Same issue there: "FATAL: No bootable medium found! System haltet"

Any suggestions about this problem ? Regards.

Hi... Please check available disk space in CINDER for /tmp/.. and /var/lib/cinder/conversion/..

While creating a new instance, the image will be copied and converted multiple times. Because this image is 16 GB in decompressed size, you should have approx. 2 x 20 GB free space in CINDER.

Cheers Bjoern
