Hello. I have created a new droplet and need to access the console with BOOT FROM RECOVERY ISO to be able to upload a customized image of my own.
But when I change that on recovery tab, turn off and on again, and access the console it hangs all the time “WAITING FOR CONSOLE” and nothing else happens.
Any help, please? This is my first approach to DigitalOcean and not very happy so far…

Hi @albertlensmend,

If you want to use your customized image, you can use the ‘Custom Images’ feature. Custom images are Linux and Unix-like images you import to DigitalOcean. You can create Droplets based custom images, which lets you migrate and scale your workloads without spending time recreating your environment from scratch.

That way you can skip the part where you are booting from recovery.
