Adventures in Centos7 AMI building

Written by Eric Schwimmer

I created a bash script that will pretty much automate the build process of a Centos7 Amazon Machine Image (for both PV & HVM instance types). It's available here.

All told, it was a bit of an experience getting it to work properly. The portion that gave me those most grief was getting GRUB2 to successfully install itself on a partitioned file system, which had itself had been created from an dev mapper volume mounted from a loopback device. Easy, right? ;)
