Image/ISO Import - General Information

You can import a bootable image from a virtual machine to use it for reinstalling on existing servers or creating new ones.

To use a bootable image of a virtual machine, the following steps are required:

  • Create a bootable image. The size of the images/ISOs must not exceed 500 GB.

    The image must be in one of the following file formats:

    Image:
    .vdi, .qcow, .qcow2, .vhd, .vhdx and .vmdk

    ISO:
    .iso

    You can use the following programs to create the image:

    Microsoft Windows:
    Disk2vhd
    Linux:
    QEMU

  • Open the Cloud Panel and import the image.

  • Create a new server with the imported image or install the image on an existing server.

  • When you install an imported CentOS 7 image, you must create a new kernel image after the installation is complete.

    When you install an imported Microsoft Windows Server image, you must enable the LSI_SAS controller after the installation is complete.
