I have a running micro instance using an 8GB EBS that I've customized.
To my understand there are two ways I can create an AMI from this.
1) EC2 console -> INSTANCES - Instances -> Right Click instance -> Create Image (EBS AMI)
2) EC2 console -> ELASTIC BLOCK STORE - Volumes -> Right Click Volume -> Create Snapshot, then go to snapshots and Right "Create Image From Snapshot"
When I right click and Select "Launch Instance" from my list of private AMIs, I'm able to successfully launch an instance from the AMI generated from the first method. However whenever I try to launch an instance from the AMI generated by the 2nd method, the Status Checks show either 1/2 checks passed or 0/2 checks passed.
Why am I unable to launch an instance from an AMI generated from the snapshot?
