I try to launch the cluster with the instance type "cc2.8xlarge" but unfortunately I run into an error. It starts to create the stack but when it comes to the creation of the MasterInstance, I receive the status "CREATE_FAILED" with the reason Virtualization type 'hvm' is required for instances of type 'cc2.8xlarge'.

The Amazon Cluster Compute systems require ami images based on HVM
virtualization. The images that work with the compute cluster systems
don't work with the other types of systems (and vice versa) as far as
I'm aware.
