I am trying to create a windows 2008 r2 AMI from scratch and upload it to amazon cloud to install on ec2. I am looking for directions or instructions to do that. Or does anybody know how to upgrade 2008 R1 data centere to 2008 r2 datacenter on Amazon EC2. I tried downloading the iso image onto the server and upgrading , but it fails with RHEL scsci miniport issue.

you can't upload a windows image from scratch. have to start from an existing windows AMI and update/patch/upgrade from there.

you can create a windows image in VMware and import to aws.
