HP Pavilion Laptop PC 15z-Eh000 CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

There's another post on the forums that describes exactly the same problem I was having.

Here: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Enable-Virtual-Machine-Platform-causes-BSOD-l...

 

The summary is this - enabling the VirtualMachinePlatform feature to install WSL2 caused a boot loop in Windows 10.

 

After a very long process of working with HP support (thanks Escalations department and Zaul) I have  the VirtualMachinePlatform feature  enabled and  WSL2 installed in Windows 10  without bluescreens during reboots.

 

What worked for me is to install the latest bios update for the 15z-eh000 CTO - F.15 Rev.A dated Aug 24 2021, do a cloud recovery to completely wipe and reinstall the machine, go through the full Windows 10 updates to get latest everything for patches and updates, and then install SP133163, which is a Realtek card reader driver update.  There is a newer version of the Realtek driver available as SP134515 and that seems to work as well.

 

After that I manually enabled the VirtualMachinePlatform function and rebooted successfully, Once I saw that working I did the full WSL2 installation using Microsoft's instructions.

 

Hope this helps someone else.
