    I was wrong, windows need virtio to run in openstack.

    Hello friend,

    Good to know your windows is running on Openstack Instance. May I know or give me the procedure so that I can run the windows to Openstack Instances ?

    Thanks in advence

      Hi Dhretiman
      The steps are:
      1) I use virt-manager in linux to create a VM. Because virt-manager use kvm, it is highly compatible with openstack too.
      2) download the virtio driver, you need this driver, otherwise openstack won’t able to detect the hardddisk.
      3) follow this step http://blog.eliasprobst.eu/?p=8 to install virtio driver and windows 7
      4) finally you got the VM image. Insert it into openstack by “glance image-create” command
