Oracle VM Guest Running Microsoft Windows Does not Boot or Crashes on Oracle VM 3.4

Symptoms

An Oracle VM Guest running Microsoft Windows Server 2016 or Microsoft Windows 10 does not boot or crashes on Oracle VM 3.4.

Possibly, other versions of Microsoft Windows are also affected.

This can be a new installation or an upgraded environment where this guest was running fine before the upgrade.

Installing a new virtual machine with Microsoft Windows Server 2016 seems to work, but after a reboot, the system crashes or doesn't boot and keeps offering the boot menu.

Changes

 Upgrading/Patching OVM Server.
