Am currently on Mode S and pondering a move to standard Windows 10 Home.


I understand that its a one-way trip.


I'm wondering whether a usb recovery disk created under S Mode could be used to return to S Mode, should the machine fail to perform under Windows 10 Home?


Cheers all.

Yes it would

S Mode uses a marker in the UEFI, and recovery will put you back to how the PC shipped

populism, the most important and misunderstood movement of our time

Thanks for that. The 32GB stick has been put aside, for a while anyway. I have moved off S Mode, and performance of the box has held up well, and off course usability much increased. So the stick is fairly unlikely to be "deployed"
