Angry import and Run openbsd on AWS

I have a OpenBSD vmdk, i need to Run this on my AWS.
I have done all these steps.
1) convert Vmdk into VHD (using virtual box)
2) Setup the ec2 toolset (ec2 api tools in my ubuntu platform).
3)run the following command to import my vhd
ec2-import-volume OpenBSD-CURRENT.vhd -f VHD -s 8 --region us-west-2 -z us-west-2a -b openbsd-export -o ACCESS_KEY -w SECRET_KEY -O ACCESS_KEY -W SECRET_KEY

Once the volume is imported (i check with ec2-describe-conversion-tasks), it shows up as a volume in the AWS Portal (Services -> EC2 -> Volumes). where it shows
volume type is standard(as by default it is standard).

but when i go to my already created openBsd instance and Stop it. Detach its root volume and attach the new OpenBSD volume as "/dev/sda1" to my sacrificial OpenBSD instance and start the instance, it's not showing 2/2 checks and i am not able to connect my instance using putty. please tell me Did I missing something ?

Welcome. This might be of some assistance.

If not, you may have better luck asking on the misc@ mailing list.
