Cannot boot RancherOS on GCE


I have tried to follow the instructions at:

but it would seem the most important steps are skipped over.

I have downloaded latest rancheros (1.0.2-rc2) # i have tried 3 versions
uploaded to bucket
created an image
created instance and selected shared vcpu and 1.7gb ram
selected image - rancheros
added ssh keys from puttygen with name showing rancher
ssh fails to connect
console show:
Booting from Hard Disk 0…

any help would be appreciated

I have managed to ssh into rancheros
I added custom metadata:
Key Value
google-username rancher

Shame this wasn’t in doc’s

hope it helps someone else
