Windows 2019 containers error

Trying to install containers on windows 2019 server VM (vmware) - hardware virtualization enabled. I follow docs and get this error. Seems common on windows 10 but not 2019. I ran the basic powershell commands, even created daemon.json, which gets the service running. Any ideas?
