How do I upload and use a custom image if Windows images are not supported?
When I upload a custom image in .raw format from my Windows PC to be used as an icon for my project I get an error,
We don't support the format of your image. Please try again with a supported image format (raw, qcow2, vdi, vhdx, or vmdk).
On Digital Ocean’s custom image page they write, Windows images are not supported.
