    Rename the file ‘C:\\Windows\\system32\\GroupPolicy\\Machine\\Registry.pol’. I am assuming the C: is your system drive.
    After renaming the above policy file. Run the following command as an administrator.

    gpupdate /force

DCOM hardening issue.

This application fails to authenticate with WMI on the SCCM server because Microsoft has not yet hardened DCOM on their Windows Preinstallation Environment. We are working on a different approach, but it will only be released during the first quarter of 2024. But until that time, the only workaround will be to uninstall the update corresponding to KB5004442.
