How exactly did you do this ?
I know for fact that Ubuntu has no registered images of 'hvm' type (which
is required to run on a cluster-compute node).

It is my understanding that in order for to run our kernels on hvm, we
will need to enable pv-on-hvm drivers which we do not currently have
enabled.  I admit I've never actually tried.

Can you give info on what ami you ran that was ubuntu on type cc1.4xlarge.

I'm guessing you've confused cluster-compute nodes with high memory
nodes (m2.4xlarge or m2.2xlarge). [1].  I just checked, and there are no
*public* images that have a name matching 'ubuntu' that are type 'hvm'
