CHR on OpenVZ

I'm going to install CHR on Debian 16.04. The Hypervisor is OpenVZ. The machine has 512MB Ram. When I try to mount the img file, I got the Unknown Error -1 message. I run the following command:

wget ... -O && \
gunzip -c > chr.img && \
mount -o loop,offset=33554944 chr.img /mnt

mount: /mnt: mount failed: Unknown error -1

Any Idea?

I would suggest to look for a different VPS based on KVM.
Even if we found a solution for mounting the image, the OpenVZ VPS won't be able to run a CHR.

OpenVZ is a container style of virtualization which relies on the host node's kernel, while CHR needs its own kernel.
To run a CHR a full virtualisation solution like hyper-v, qemu/kvm or vmware is requiered.
