Microsoft, last week, released the Windows Patch Tuesday security updates for both Windows 10 and Windows 11. The former (KB5031356) has been causing installation issues with "Error 8007000D (ERROR_INVALID_DATA)" being displayed on affected systems and devices.

Microsoft "resolved" the issue using known issue rollback (KIR). It also provided steps to manually fix the problem by using Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) Windows image repair. We covered that in this article which lists the steps to carry out the manual fix.

The special Group Policy can be found in Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> . For information on deploying and configuring these special Group Policy, please see How to use Group Policy to deploy a Known Issue Rollback.
