In fact, ask this question: is it possible to install your Windows (licensed) on a Linux instance on Amazon EC2? The point is that Linux instance costs almost in 2 times less money.

I tried to do this:

1. Created Windows instance. Stopped and disconnected the drive.
2. Created a Linux instance. Stopped and disabled the drive.
3. Connected the disk with the installed Windows (the same one that provides Amazon) to a Linux instance as /dev/sda1.
4. Launched a Linux instance (with the replaced disk).

As a result, the car started, but to connect via RDP or to a Web server failed (all the required ports were open). That is, most likely, Windows was unable to start, but to know that, because the VNC access is not...

Why not start up — not clear... Maybe for Lenuska they have a different configuration of the machine?

Thought of another way: use the Windows AIK to create a drive that can install Windows automatically. But I'm not sure that it would work.

Maybe someone already dealt with this issue and can share experience?

experimenting - does not start.
details we know, because Amazon will be very surprised at this ingenuity
in General, in fact there is Xen, I do not remember citrix or open
and he has the configs to bind to configuration
ie the template is not General and varies according to the type of virtualization.
for example I have WIn worked with HVM(hardware), and Linux cars respectively in paravirtualization
so I think it is an error - can't process this virtualizer this instance
