Hi there,

Does your custom image follow all of the image requirements listed here:

As the CHR image router Mikrotik image works as expected, what you could do is to use that image to spin up a server and use it as the base server and configure it as per your needs and at the end take a snapshot which you could use later on for your new servers.
