Windows Server goes into infinite loop after installing Hyper-V

This has happened me several times that whenever I try to install Hyper-V onto Windows Server 2016 on my HP Prolient ML310e Gen8 server, it would boot up but goes into infinite loop when it reached the windows logo. This has happened me even when I tried installing Hyper-V on Windows Server 2019. Otherwise it works perfectly well if Hyper-V is not installed.

Can someone please tell me what is the possible reason it is causing this issue and what is the solution for that.

Slipstream the latest cumulative update into Install.WIM and create a new install flash drive or .ISO file. It's a known problem. The link is to a script to use DISM and OSCDImg to do that.

Otherwise, install Windows Server 2019, then the Servicing Stack Update, then the cumulative update, and finally enable the Hyper-V Role.

I did the second option. But still after installing 2019 and the Servicing Stack Update for 2019 and then cumulative updates and then enabling the Hyper-V role, server went into infinite loop after reboot at windows logo screen.

Flip the BIOS to non-uEFI boot and install then enable Hyper-V. It should be fine then.

The fix should be there.

I don't think HP Prolient ML310e Gen8 v2 Server has this kind of settings. I checked the setting twice to confirm.
