Find the AMI that you want to use to launch a new instance. To begin, open the menu next to the search bar, and then choose one of the following:
If the AMI that you're using is one that you created, select Owned by me.
If the AMI that you're using is a public AMI, select Public images.
If the AMI that you're using is a private image that someone else shared with you, select Private images. Note: The search bar automatically provides filtering options as well as automatically matching AMI IDs.
Select the AMI, and then choose Launch.
Choose an instance type, and then choose Next: Configure Instance Details. Optionally select configuration details, such as associating an IAM role with the instance.
