    I used your method to create a Debian Squeeze amd64 ami, and I can only launc a micro, small and high-cpu instance. Any idea why that could be happening?

    Nvm, I did not specify the architecture, while registering the ami. Also I cant ssh into the instance, I guess the answer lies in one of the comments.
    Thanks for the awesome guide :) Keep up the good work!

    Hi Rodney,

    Thanks for the tutorial. The whole process works for me almost without errors.

    However, when I try to connect the instance using the public address, I got timeout error. I also tried to ping it but failed.

    Please advise. Thanks.

    Hi Leo,

    Did you check the security groups?
    If you can paste on the console logs, that would be helpful also.
