Client Error: Unsupported.Incomplete Root Disk.No /etc directory found


This was the error that I received while creating an instance of an OPENBSD vmdk file to AWS using EC2 API tools.

I tried using Ubuntu,Kali Linux but the same error persisted.

AWS does not support creation of OpenBSD instance using Windows platform.

First of all, I presumed that this error is due to a corrupt vmdk , so I re-downloaded it but it didn't help.

There is not much information on the Internet about how to create an instance of OpenBSD on AWS.

So I started looking at the error which is a Client Error.The AWS documentation says this::

Client errors.are usually caused by something the client did, such as specifying an incorrect or invalid parameter in the request, or using an action or resource on behalf of a user that doesn't have permission to use the action or resource. These errors are accompanied by a 400-series HTTP response code.

This is the command i use  "ec2-import-instance openBsd.vmdk -f VMDK -t t2.micro -a i386 -b import-export- o $AWS_ACCESS_KEY -w $AWS_SECRET_KEY --region us-west-2"

  2. used this process initially ..still no help ..it is because the OS whose instance I want to create is based on Open VAS and there is not much info about creating open BSD instance . Also I cannot use convert into RAW then to AMI. i want to create direct instance using VMDK in EC2

  4. I had this problem too and I didn't know what to do. It was a disaster. That's why your post is really cool. It could help me very much that time! You know, it's always like this. It's like when you find perfect topic just after you finished writing an essay.
