Hi there,

A few weeks ago I performed a system reset within Windows 11 to attempt to resolve a driver issue with one of my Galaxy Book S USB-C ports. The system reset did not resolve the problem but I eventually figured out a fix.

With the system reset the Qualcomm power plan that came with the Galaxy Book S disappeared. This is a Samsung-specific power plan that came with the Book S and optimized its battery duration to the next level. Even after performing all Windows and Samsung updates, I was unable to recover that power plan.

After that I realized that on my Book S there was a recovery partition - even though I had seen posts on the web stating the Book S had no recovery partition. So I restarted my PC, performed a reset from the BIOS, and reinstalled the original Windows 10 that came with the laptop. I performed all Windows and Samsung updates but I was once again unable to retrieve the Samsung power plan that was originally installed on the Books S. Eventually I upgraded to Windows 11 again.

Today I just checked the partititions from Command Prompt and noticed two partitiions:

1 a Windows RE recovery partition

2 a SAMUNSG_REC recovery paritition

Now I am wondering if maybe there is way to reinstall the system from the Samsung recovery parition to get the original factory setup, including all Samsung drivers and apps.

Would anybody know?

I thought the Book S was ARM based?

Yes, the Book S is ARM-based. The version I have has an Snapdragon  8xc. Why?

Didn't think ARM could run full Windows 10 or 11?
Interesting if it does recall passing on the Microsoft foldable

I can't say for sure it's a full version but it works like a charm.

The Windows 11 version on my Book S is supposedly the same one that is my two Galaxy Book Pro - Windows 11 23H2, down to the buld version (22631.3155).
