All the instructions I find online start with an existing AMI, but I would like to create an AMI from scratch using HVM instead of PV.
Does anyone know the procedure for doing this?

The procedure is virtually identical, start with an HVM AMI, make your changes, use the CreateImage API call. If we refer to the Instance Type Matrix (http://aws.amazon.com/amazon-linux-ami/instance-type-matrix/), we can see HVM is the dominant virtualization style at this point in time for EC2.
