I am trying to add some other software to the cluster with quite a few requirements and the amazon versions cause it to fail out. I am trying to work around it, but was wondering if there was a way just to substitute a different base image.
No luck. It picks up the AMI from somewhere else, because the number it used isn't in that file. I am using the new Tech Preview of HWX Cloud.

No, I was posting about the Hortonworks Cloud Tech Preview. I am hoping the prior answer works for me. Trying it now.
Hortonworks Data Cloud for AWS uses pre-built AMIs that will run Amazon Linux. There is currently not an option to customize those, since Data Cloud relies heavily on being able to configure the clusters for the cluster configuration types and therefore, expects a known/consistent OS with pre-baked AMIs. That said: thank you for the feedback and we will consider different OS options in future releases though.
I vote for Centos 7.x as that's used by a lot of users and is very handy for some security items. A new Ubuntu would be good as well.
