Windows AMI from scratch?   Leave a comment

As a result of the further investigations in the Developer Documentations and community forum, I concluded that it is possible to build a Windows OS AMI from scratch.

Even though it produces some error while running the uploaded instance, the postings confirms the existence of a process to create and upload AMI on to EC2. But wait! The reply to the issue posted also says the build from scratch will fail due to jicensing issues related to the OS. Colin Rhodes says “…the ONLY way to create a new Windows AMI is to re-bundle an existing Windows AMI…”

Being said these, the following is a dead ends related to this, it suggests that they have created instances and are having some issues while logging in using RDP. The system could not log you on

Now, here is the one that wants to create AMI from scratch programmatically.

Finally, this one a recent post.
