    Default Creating EBS based installation - instance do not initialize

    I'm not a Unix nerd - anyway I try to do my best :-)

    I'm would like to an Amazon Wowza instance that I can start and stop. I can understand that I need the instance storage to be of type EBS.

    This is what I have tried:

    Creating the instance: ec2-run-instances -z eu-west-1c --key myThirdKeyPair ami-80d221f7 (I gave up on DevPay and went for the LicKey model)
    Stopped Engine and Engine Manager
    Used the following to create a EBS-based snapshot: http://sebastiandahlgren.se/2014/01/...bs-backed-ami/
    Create image from snapshot
    Created an new Instance (using my new EBS Image)

    When the instance start, it takes a long time and results in "1/2 checks passed"

    The system log is below - can someone help?

    I found the solution.

    When creating the image, it is crucial to specify the appropiate KernelId (I got it from the original instance)
