Memory HotPlug causes Windows VM to not start boot process

Hey all --

I have a Win10 VM with all the drivers installed on PVE 8. I've got all the hot plug things enabled except for memory. When I enable that in the VM options, it causes the the VM to not even start to boot. Usually you see the Proxmox logo followed by the progress bar at the bottom. With HotPlug Memory on, it just sits at the Proxmox logo forever. There's no error in the error panel either.

Anyone know what could be causing this and how I can fix it? Thank you!
