vm creation initiation FAILED with status 400

This message is caused by the Amazon EC2 account not being completely set up. Typically if you log into the amazon console, you will see a message indicating that your EC2 account establishment is "in progress". You should wait for the Amazon process to complete and then retry the operation.
 
There is a possibility that if you have proceeded with the signup process without the Amazon account being setup first, that some aspects of your n3phele setup could be broken, and this will cause additional failures. If this occurs you will need to delete your Accounts and Repositories and re-create them. See figure 2 for an example.
