Duplicate System UUID's

Richard ReyesRichard Reyes New Member Posts: 1
I am trying to test the UP-Board Make : AAEON, Model : UP-CHT01 "http://up-shop.org/up-boards/44-up-board-4gb-ram-64-gb-emmc.html"; for mass deployment in our test environment via SCCM, the first issue is being address about NIC PXe boot support in another thread here. the other issue I am concerned about is duplicate UUID's If anyone else has these device please post the UUID:
UUID
03000200-0400-0500-0006-000700080009

These numbers are suppose to be unique to each device in the same way the MAC address is unique to the NIC.
run this in a command prompt in Windows OS:
WMIC PATH WIN32_ComputerSystemProduct GET "UUID" to see if yours is the same as mine.

For imaging dozens of these this would be a problem, ASUS has a reputation for not filling in some other system information
open PowerShell prompt and run:
Get-WMIObject Win32_BIOS | Select *
Get-WMIObject Win32_ComputerSystem | Select *
Get-WMIObject Win32_ComputerSystemProduct | Select *

you will see some fields missing reading "{To be filled by O.E.M }"
This information is crucial when managing dozens if not 100's of devices

    After checking with our team, it seems the only way to have unique UUID is to enter it during the BIOS burn-in during production already. It is not possible to it afterward.
    We would like to suggest you to use MAC address as a unique ID for your application.
    Or we can do it based on order with minimum 50pcs order with additional cost since all the set-up needs to be done manually.

    We try to work out if any other simple way that permits users to do it easily, but it seems we didn't find it yet.
