How to get/know the serial number for assembled desktops?


I am using assembled desktop. For this, there is no serial number. When I give the command "wmic bios get serialnumber" from windows system then it is showing output as "to be filled by OEM". How to know or how to provide the serial number. Please help me out.

Since all Intel Desktop Boards ship with the Serial Number field of the SMBIOS BIOS Information structure filled in, I am presuming that this is not an Intel Desktop Board product. This forum is specifically for the support of Intel Desktop Board products.

Ok, that said, based upon the default string found in this field, I can tell that your board has an AMI BIOS. AMI has tools that you can obtain that will allow you to update fields like this in cases where a generic AMI BIOS is used.
