First, it's BackTrack, not "black".

Second, they're allowed. Get the ISO from the official website, upload, mount, boot. For AWS you'll have to grab the VMware image and import that.

Third, using them to test anything you don't own is 1. Against the TOS 2. Illegal in most places (certainly in the US; probably in Sweden too)

Thanks for your answer. But i also want to know if BackTrack can be installed on Azure or not? –  ReCra Dec 13 '12 at 5:51
    
Yep. Same process. You could also use either Hyper-V or Virtual Server to create a VHD with the install and upload that. –  Chris S Dec 13 '12 at 5:53
    
Is there any detailed guide that i can refer to? –  ReCra Dec 13 '12 at 5:55
    
Honestly, if you need a detailed guide to getting a VM running in AWS or Azure, you almost certainly should not be running BackTrack. It's the thermo-nuclear weapon of security tools. I'd highly recommend getting a book about it and following that. BackTrack4: Assuring Security by Penetration Testing is slightly dated, but has plenty of good relevant material. –  Chris S Dec 13 '12 at 6:04
    
Unless I've missed something major, it's not possible to boot an EC2 instance off of an iso. –  EEAA Dec 13 '12 at 6:05
