I'm following the sample provided by to run LCOWs and have a simple test for LCOWs:

But the job:

Fails with "Failed to start the virtual machine 'MobyLinuxVM' because one of the Hyper-V components is not running."

How can I successfully run LCOWs?

    Since the post you linked to we've migrated users who want to run LCOW to Windows Server 2019 (which is now enabled on your account).
    Can you try your build with image: Windows Server 2019 added to your configuration and let us know if you still have problems.

    Thanks for the input. I switched to `image: Windows Server 2019` and the build never seems to start. The following events take place:
