I made an AMI from a Windows snapshot using AWS Console, but the operation created an AMI of type "Linux (Other)". Funnily enough, the AMI launches and AWS charges the Linux price (!). However, I am not able to retrieve the Administrator password.
Long story short, is it possible to specifically create a Windows AMI from an EBS snapshot? The documentation only refers to making an Windows AMI from a live instance (which isn't possible if the instance is a spot instance).
