    can revert to the factory install?

    I had this happen and it turned out it was the Samsung updater...I thought it was the update for Win Fall Creators that broke my Book settings, but it wasn't. Nothing worked for me except reverting to factory settings.

    Unfortunately, I can't go back to factory install because I completely formatted the internal drive. So there is no recovery or factory option left. I hope there is a way to get back book settings because it is handy for battery saver and pen sensitivity options.

    Nothing different than normal windows formatting.
    Creat uefi bootable usb windows.iso with rufus.
    Plug in the usb with usb 3.0 to type-c convertor.
    Turn off the tablet.
    Open it and keep pressing f10 to see boot menu.
    When you see the boot menu, select your uefi bootable usb.
    And then follow the normal windows installation steps.

    Sounds like it might be worth asking Samsung directly if they can give you access to disk image. Can't hurt to try out their support hotline.

    I don't think that is necessary,bro. In the installation guide of official galaxy book drivers it says that

    "The driver package is a collection of the drivers that can be installed automatically by Windows PnP manager, which can be imported to Microsoft Deployment Tool or System Center Configuration Manager. These drivers can also be installed and updated either by Windows Update or by Samsung Update.
    Galaxy Book Setting application is in the Optional folder and can be installed in order to change the display dimming time-out value. Samsung Update in the Optional folder can be installed to maintain Samsung S/W up to date easily."

    But I still couldn't figure out how to install book settings with windows Pnp Manager or MDT :(
    I thought maybe someone here knows that .

    Can't you just find the Book Settings app in the Windows Store and install it from there?

    Like I said before the store says about book settings is that "This product needs to be installed on your internal hard drive"

    Edit: I tried again to download it from store. And boom. It downloaded. Interesting :)

    The command to fix the MBR with windows is

    bootrec /FixMbr will write a Windows Vista and Windows 7 compatible MBR to the system partition.
    bootrec /FixBoot will write a new boot sector to the system partition. If your system is Windows 7, FixBoot will write a Windows 7-compatible boot sector and so on.

    bootrec /ScanOs will scan the hard drives for any installations. ScanOs will also print installations that are not currently in the BCD.

    bootrec /RebuildBcd will scan for installations on your hard drive and allows you to select which to add to the BCD.

    COMMAND PROMPT - GO TO A COMMAND PROMPT USING YOUR WIN 7 DVD
    ■Boot up from your Windows 7 DVD.
    ■At the first dialog window, press SHIFT + F10 key combo
    ■You will have a X:> command prompt
    X: is a ram drive created by Windows 7.
    ======================================


    Now that you are there, here are the commands you need:

    REPAIR-RESTORE-FIX THE MASTER BOOT RECORD


    Ø Boot to System Repair Options
    Ø Click on Command Prompt
    Ø Type cd boot and hit ENTER
    Ø Type BOOTREC /RebuildBCD and hit ENTER
    this rebuilds the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) file

    Ø Type BOOTREC /FixBoot and hit ENTER
    The /FixBoot option writes a new boot sector to the system partition
    Ø Type BOOTREC /FixMBR and hit ENTER
    this writes a Vista / Win 7 MBR to the system partition; does not overwrite the existing partition table
    Ø

    That's what I did too countless times but it still doesn't work for me. Bootabe USB does not appear.

    @Unej I will try, thanks!
