Re-installing the Windows 11 Pro OS image shall wipe everything on the SSD.
So, it's important to back-up your data prior to re-installing the Windows 11 Pro OS image.

Also, before installing Windows 11, please go to BIOS and make sure the ‘Project Version’ is v0.24 or above, otherwise, please do NOT proceed.

If you need to update the BIOS to V0.24, check out this thread:

  1. Download the Windows 11 Pro OS image from from here:

  2. Prepare an 8GB or 16GB of NTFS format USB memory stick and rename its title as “WINPE”.

  3. Unzip the downloaded firmware file, and then copy all child files and folders to the root directory of the USB stick.

  4. Connect the keyboard and USB stick to the NEO J50C-4 Plus, power on the NEO J50C-4 Plus, then press F11 button and select USB stick to boot in the prompt window.
    You don’t need to do anything, just wait for the installation finished. It’ll take about 15 minutes.
    If you don't find the USB stick at the list in the prompted window, please check if the USB stick is NTFS. (exFAT is a known format that the device does not recognize).

  5. When the installation finished, the device would restart, and you should be able to see below picture.

  6. Click the “OK” button, then the box shall re-start.
    This installation process has now been completed.
    Enjoy the new Windows 11.
