Hyper-V will not let me install Microsoft Server 2016 (ProLiant ML30 Gen9)

ProLiant ML30 Gen9
Microsoft Windows Server 2016

I hope I’m in the right place for this question.


I purchased a ProLiant ML30 Gen9 server last year and installed Microsoft Server 2012 R2. Now I would like to install Microsoft Server 2016 and 2019 in Hyper-V to experiment with these operating systems.


When I execute the Microsoft Server 2016 in Hyper-V it gives me the following error,


“Windows failed to start”            

“There isn’t enough memory available to create a ramdisk device”


I read in a few places that there is a compatibility issue, but I can’t find anywhere a solution. Has anyone been able to resolve this problem?


Thank you
