I was able to get CentOS 8 Stream to continue the installation by turning Hyper-V off in Windows 10.

This is rather strange because earlier versions of CentOS with older kernels install properly. It seems the newest Linux kernels on CentOS have problems with Hyper-V on?

Have the same problem. Not able to get CentOs 8.3 or CentOS Stream to work. Tried turning off Hyper-V from programs & features. Quite strange. Faced this on both 6.1.16 and 6.1.18 builds of VirtualBox.

Please advise if you know how to fix this.
