The launching steps are exactly the same as launching a new virtual machine, except that the new instance will already have the operating system settings, configurations and installations of the original instance. Please refer to tutorial Launching Virtual Machines for more information.

The flavor of instance must be large enough to fit the image on the primary root disk.
