6.1.2. Creating a New Instance from the Private ISO Image

In this section, we explain how to create a New Instance using a Private ISO Image File. Keep in mind, this can’t be done until the Private ISO Image is uploaded in advance. Please refer to section Upload Private Template / ISO for more information.
When using your own Private ISO Image, the following tasks must be done.
  1. Upload the Private ISO Image File.

  2. Create a New Instance using the Private ISO Image, with an empty Volume attached.

  3. Temporarily Shut Off (“stop”) the Instance, and disconnect (“detach”) the attached Volume.

  4. Make the detached Volume ”Bootable” ( as it is called “to be ready for start”).

  5. Configure a New Instance using the Image and Volume you just created.

6.1.2.1. Upload the Private ISO Image File.

Please refer to section 4.1 Upload Private Template / ISO, for this procedure.

6.1.2.2. Create a New Instance using a Private ISO Image, with an empty Volume attached

In the ​”Create Instance”​ screen, on the ​”Details” tab, from the ​”Image Name”​ drop-down, choose the Image you uploaded. From the drop-down on the ​”Data Volume” tab, choose an empty Volume.
Keep in mind, empty Volumes need to be configured in advance. Please refer to section 6.2.2 Adding a Data Volume to an Instance for this procedure.

Note

The Instance created during this procedure, will be discarded after the Private ISO Image is installed. Therefore, you do NOT need to configure any other settings like Network, etc.

After starting (booting) the Instance and a connection to the Console is established, a screen like the one pictured below will appear. To install your private BYOL Images, follow the steps.
