I've problems with Windows 2008 R2 Guest on new Promox 6.0. I'm getting Blue Screen Of Dead on Windows Startup.

First I've tried a in place upgrade and after restore a backup of vm to fresh PVE 6.0 instalation. With my Ubuntu VM and Containers everything is working, but with Windows VM I'm getting same trouble: BSOD on startup or stucking in Windows loding screen:
