I created a custom AMI based on the Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit AMI from Amazon. When I try to start it up, I get an error:
ec2-run-instances -t t1.micro ami-c0b368a9 -k showcase -z us-east-1a Client.InvalidParameterValue: The requested instance type's architecture (i386) does not match the architecture in the manifest for aki-825ea7eb (x86_64)
When I look in the FAQs here: http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/Instance_Types_and_Architectures.html
it says "All instance types can run 64-bit AMIs."
How can I start a 64-bit AMI?
I'm running ec2-api-tools 126.96.36.199 and ec2-ami-tools 1.3-45758 on OSX.
Any help would be much appreciated.
**UPDATE:** I created the AMI incorrectly, when registering an AMI from a snapshot, I needed to provide --architecture x86_64 to the ec2-register command.
