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
