Microsoft Windows 11 notebook Surface Book 3 resumes pushing storage driver firmware updates

Microsoft continues to release new firmware for its Surface computers. After bringing dynamic refresh rate support to the Surface Laptop Studio, Microsoft began rolling out a new set of patches for the Surface Book 3.

This update contains no major changes. Instead, it restores a previously corrupt Surface storage driver that broke Windows installations on some Surface Book 3s.

Here is the list of new drivers in this release:

You can install the May 2022 firmware update on all models of Surface Book 3 running Windows 10 version 20H2 (October 2020 Update) or later. Microsoft says there are no known bugs in this release.
