I am trying to launch an instance, and I'm adding an EBS volume on top of the root volume. In the extra EBS volume, I'm specifying a snapshot I created. When I click "Launch", I immediately get the following error:

snapshotId can only be modified on EBS devices

Can you explain the problem?

Normally, moving to a bigger instance with larger storage will solve this problem.

Or you can try with changing your instance EBS volume name from /dev/sdf to /dev/sd[f-p]. /dev/sd[f-p] is AWS recommended device name for Linux/Unix systems.
