You must enter the number of CPUs, RAM and the deployed size of the single virtual machine Hard disk. These fields are required and if you do not enter correct values, you may not be able to deploy. If you do not know these values, you can: upload the file to the TemplateRepository, which automatically detects the values, and then download it to Abiquo; or, determine an accurate value for the Hard disk, then enter best-guess values for # CPU and RAM (e.g. 1 x CPU and 512 MB of RAM). These values can be modified after the image is uploaded. Later you an edit the template and add more standard disks.
