Hi there!

From the notes, I understand that your EC2 instance is failing the status check after attempting to detach and attach a new volume.

For guidance, reasons that can cause an instance to fail to boot are:

  1. Using incorrect device names when attaching the volume [1].
  2. Incorrect entries in the fstab file due to booting from secondary volumes attached to the instance. Please refer to document link [2] to troubleshoot issues when booting from a different volume.

To troubleshoot the issue from your side, you can check the instance's system logs to determine the cause of the failure [3]. Depending on the cause of failure you may use [4] to further troubleshoot.

I hope you find the above information helpful.

Have a great day ahead!
