Maybe because it's not ESXi ?

Are you using the Cisco OVA template for this install? Unity has stricter requirements than Call Manager. I install CUCM and CUCx frequently and I always use the OVA template. Mostly for support purposes. If you either use the template or follow the limits in the Cisco UC on UCS Wiki - https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/uc_system/virtualization/virtualization-cisco-unity-connection.html
then you should be able to get past this error. I'm guessing its the CPU affinity or reserved RAM that's missing.

Yes that is correct. I dont have access to any .OVA.  I dont have any service contracts associated to my cisco account.  This is for a lab setup.

So if i am just using this for a home lab do i still need to give it 160 gig hdd space?  Seems like a waste of space.

Here's the template from Cisco's website. It should have a selection of which size to choose during setup. https://filedb.experts-exchange.com/incoming/2020/06_w27/1470859/CUC_12.0_v1.0.ova
