I am using the Bitnami Tomcat on Ubuntu AWS AMI for my application servers. I want to upgrade my old PV image to be hardware virtualized (HVM) so I can take advantage of the m4 instance types on AWS.
I followed these instructions for upgrading an existing Ubuntu PV image to an HVM image, and everything works fine up until I try to launch a new instance based on the image created from that process.
I can launch new instances if I use the older m3 instance types, but if I try to launch an m4.large I get this error from the AWS Management Console:
Launch Failed The instance configuration for this AWS Marketplace product is not supported. Please see the AWS Marketplace site for more information about supported instance types, regions, and operating systems.
Is there something left in the original boot volume that won't allow this image to run on an hvm type? I'm two days into this process and I can see the finish line, but I can't quite get there!
