There are a few image requirements that you need to keep in mind:

  • Operating system. Images must have a Unix-like OS.

File format. Images must be in one of the following file formats:

  • Raw (.img) with an MBR or GPT partition table qcow2
  • VHDX
  • VDI
  • VMDK
  • Size. Images must be 100 GB or less when uncompressed, including the filesystem.
