Call to WHvSetupPartition failed: ERROR_SUCCESS (Last=0xc000000d/87) (VERR_NEM_VM_CREATE_FAILED)


This question is SIMILAR to this post, but the solution presented there isn't applicable because I have Windows 10 Home and not Pro. The Hyper-V & Windows Sandbox deactivation solution that the accepted answer leans on isn't available for me.

OS: Windows 10 64bit, Version 1909, Build 18363.476 (19H2)

Before upgrading windows from version 1903 to 1909, everything I needed to do with VirtualBox was working well, but it seems I've encountered some post-upgrade issues. When trying to start my VirtualBox Ubuntu VM, I get the following error message:

Call to WHvSetupPartition failed: ERROR_SUCCESS (Last=0xc000000d/87) (VERR_NEM_VM_CREATE_FAILED).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005) Component: ConsoleWrap Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

I've tracked down a resource on the forums which leads me to believe the problem could be related to the fact that I've been trying out the Windows Terminal Preview on my computer, but I can't figure out how to resolve the problem because the solution presented also relies on disabling Hyper-V in the Windows Features manager, which isn't an option for me.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? All of the literature I've been able to find online relies on disabling Hyper-V either temporarily or permanently. Is there a way to do this safely from a PowerShell prompt?
