comment Install a dhcp/tftp server on debian
Not off the top of my head. You could use wireshark to watch the DHCP transaction and see if that helps clarify the issue. Are you 100% sure there is no other DHCP server running (no connection sharing set up on a mac, for example, or your router perhaps?)

comment Policies for maintaining access credentials on EC2
If you aren't using IAM already, that's a very important first step. If you are using EC2 access keys for SSH, I recommend not doing so; use them for deployment only, long enough for your deployment process to install vanilla SSH keys.
