If you select Review and Launch option all the VM configurations will be the default. If you select the Configure Instance Details you can specific your settings.

You do not want to select proceed without a key pair because you will need a private key to access your VM. I selected “Create a new key pair” because I deleted my previous key from the last assignment. In the next dialog you are required to name your key pair so I gave it the name “Key.” Click the gray box for “Download Key Pair.” It’s going to run and there will be a pop-up box asking if you want to open or save key.pem. I’m going to click the down arrow beside save and select save as and annotate where I save the key.pem. Now you can click on the blue “Launch Instances” button. There is another blue “View Instance” button at the bottom right of the window.
