Installation of IIS Roles now require reboot on Win2019.

Hi, previously when installing a number of IIS10 Roles on Windows 2016 (Web-HTTP-Errors for example), reboots were not required.
When installing on Windows 2019, reboots are now required. Why is this? Is there a way around this? There were no pending reboots prior to installation btw.

    @James Fowler You can try to reset iis and try again. right-click on cmd.exe and select run as administrator, at the command prompt, type IISRESET, press Enter.
