To install a prebuilt custom VM using CLI:

Use the azure-vm-customized command in the FSA CLI.

For example:

> azure-vm-customized -cn -voWindows7_64 -vnWIN7X64VMvhd -s[Subscription ID] -g[this_resource_group_name] -a[this_storage_account_name] -k[this_storage_account_key] -fcustomwinvm -bcustomizedWIN7X64VM.vhd -r
