Are Hyper-V VMs more stable on Windows Server vs Windows 10?

Hi all,

I’m running a Hyper-V host on a Windows 10 machine (beefy gaming type PC, 32GB ram, 1TB SSD) and attemping to spin up Windows 10 guests (as differencing disks off a parent disk). The problem is that often VMs start and often get stuck on the boot screen.
I can often restart them and they boot in fine (though not always). I have looked around and none of the obvious problems/solutions seem to help.

If I were to get server class hardware and run e.g. Windows Server 2019 would this boost the reliability of the VMs i.e. fewer if any black screens?

Or should they run just as reliably on my Windows 10 gaming rig and my problem is most likely something else?

Any thoughts appreciated
