Add a Windows Image to Eucalyptus

After the Windows virtual machine has been shut down, its entire disk can be uploaded to Eucalyptus as an HVM image.

  1. Extract the disk from the hypervisor into a file.
    • With KVM, the disk may already be a file in raw format. If it's a file in a different format, convert it into raw disk format. If it's a block device, you can use 'dd' utility to copy contents of the block device into a file.
  2. Upload the raw disk file using the instructions in the Install an HVM image section.
