Faulting application name: w3wp.exe Exchange Server 2016 & Windows Server 2016

When today i was trying to deploy Exchange 2016 in Windows Server 2016 got the below error.
The W3WP.exe application constantly crashes and spams the Event Log with crashes every few seconds.
Here is the Event Log:
Faulting application name: w3wp.exe, version: 10.0.14393.0, time stamp: 0x57899b8a
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.14393.0, time stamp: 0x578997b2


Official from Microsoft:

If you attempt to run Microsoft Exchange 2016 CU3 on Windows Server 2016, you will experience errors in the IIS host process W3WP.exe. There is no workaround at this time. You should postpone deployment of Exchange 2016 CU3 on Windows Server 2016 until a supported fix is available.
