I created Windows 7 Pro 64 images and all are getting this error. I configured them to use virtio disk and network adapter using the 1-74 drivers. They work fine locally (kvm on ubuntu 13, qcow2 drive, virtio nic and disk), but when I upload them to my org's OpenStack cloud Windows throws an error.
When I tried to create an instance I got the following error visible from the console:
I acknowledged the error, the vm rebooted and now it's constantly showing the following error while trying to boot the OS:
Reading from this KB I retrieved the log files, which look like this:

Personally, I feel like this should be the standard process for building new images. Not only do you get an image that was made on the same hardware it will be deployed on, but updating/testing/forking the image will be much faster/easier to do inside OpenStack with the Snapshot functionality as compared to updating the image on your local machine and uploading to glance every time.
