I have tried to start the "Amazon Linux AMI 2017.03.0 (HVM), SSD Volume Type - ami-c58c1dd3 since it worked on web console, but the last command in this sequence got an error:
ec2 = boto3.resource('ec2')
ec2.create_instances(ImageId='ami-c58c1dd3', MinCount=1, MaxCount=1)
Traceback (most recent call last):

botocore.exceptions.ClientError: An error occurred (InvalidParameterCombination) when calling the RunInstances operation: Non-Windows instances with a virtualization type of 'hvm' are currently not supported for this instance type.
The problem seems related to "hvm" but I'm not sure how is it related to boto.
The problem is that all linux VM on AmazonWS are "hvm".

That's not true. See "PV" instances here: https://aws.amazon.com/amazon-linux-ami/
Also, the error message itself is helpful in this case: "... currently not supported for this instance type." You can try passing in an instance type instead of using the default.
