During the course of 2021 as several machines updated to Windows 10 Version 202H2 both 32 bit and 64 bit they demonstrated catastrophic failures that mimicked other problems. These included Windows displaying a BSOD. Message ‘BAD SYSTEM CONFIG INFO’ refering to log files at ‘c:\windows\system32\logfiles\srt\SrtTrail.txt’. Other messages would be typical of those displayed when hard drives are really failing. After running automatic repair and disk checking – they would then repeat the process. The machines would re-boot repeatedly. Attempts to use the self-repair options or Windows boot drives would lead to User accounts disappearing from the options and failure to find Restore points (if available). One machine would lock on the dark start-up screen many times, then would successfully boot and run for days as long as it wasn’t powered down. Another machine was running normally then Outlook 2019 ‘disappeared’ before the machine started cycling through the other symptoms.
Machines affected included: HP dc7900, HP dc8200.
The resolution to all this, so far, was Windows 21H1 either by fresh installation or using the Windows update assistant if the machine was capable of running it.

After getting this error attempting to install from USB stick and from a DVD created with Windows Media Creation Tool on an old system with a 160Gb Hard Drive the solution was to delete all existing system partitions on the Disk drive leaving a large unallocated block to assign for the new windows installation.
Full Error Description:
Windows cannot install required files. Make sure that all files required for installation are available and restart the installation.
On a later occasion the same problem was resolved by creating a new USB Installation drive using the latest Windows 10 version, 21H2 at the time.
