Uploading images

To upload an image

  1. On the Images screen, click Add image.
  2. In the Add image window, do the following:

    1. Click Browse and select a file in one of the supported formats: .iso, .img, .qcow2, .raw.
    2. Specify an image name to be shown in the admin panel.
    3. Select the correct OS type from the drop-down list.

      The OS type affects VM parameters such as hypervisor settings. VMs created from an image with an incorrect OS type may not work correctly, for example, they may crash.

  3. If you have chosen an image in the QCOW2, RAW, or IMG format, select the UEFI boot check box, to mark the image as UEFI bootable. This option cannot be configured after the image is uploaded.

  4. Click Add to start uploading the image. The upload progress will be shown in the bottom right corner.

You can hide the pop-up window without interrupting the upload process. The upload progress will be available in the notification center.
