Hyper-V / Server 2016 host is crashing when VMs start for first time

Like the title says, We are having an issue with our hyper-v host servers crashing on the initial startup of guest vm’s. 

Everything works fine during the creation of the guest vm, then when we go to power up the guest vm about 10-20 seconds later the host crashes. Doesn’t happen on every vm setup, but quite a few (say 1/3). 

I have found examples of others having the same issue or similar. See  (not my video, but same sort of issue).

I haven’t seen anything in event viewer that would indicate a problem with the host. no crash logs are saved when it does crash, just a hard black screen (no BSOD). 

Any thing you guys can point me to look for here? I am at a total loss on this.
