Known issues with Windows Server build 17079
[NEW] When Hypervisor Code Integrity (HVCI) is enabled, a system may fail to start. On affected systems, firmware locates UEFI runtime services in memory described as Memory-Mapped I/O (MMIO).
Running nanoserver-insider containers on a Windows Server Core host will fail, and may crash the host.
As a workaround, you can add “—isolation=hyperv” when running or building the containers such as “docker run –isolation=hyperv microsoft/nanoserver-insider”.
