I have a Windows Server 2016 instance and I created a snapshot of it. And then I deleted the instance. Now, when I create AMI from that snapshot and launch instance from that AMI, I cannot decrypt the password with my private key. I did some research and looked into some logs, it says

"Failed to get metadata: The result from was empty"

When I search about it on the internet, they say I need to run some PowerShell script, but I cannot run anything because I cannot even login to the instance. I have also deleted the original instance. Please give me some advice how can I login to the instance.
