Image/ISO Import - General Information

You can import a bootable image from a virtual machine to use it for a new installation on existing servers or to create new servers.

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

Step 1

Create a bootable image. The size of the images/ISOs must be a maximum of 500 GB.

The image must be available 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

Step 2

Open the Cloud Panel and import the image.

Step 3

Use the imported image to create a new server or install the image on an existing server.

Step 4

If you install an imported CentOS 7 image, you must create a new kernel image once the installation process is complete.

If you install an imported Microsoft Windows Server image, you must activate the LSI_SAS controller once the installation process is complete.
