How to find computer serial number stated change to be filled by OEM

OEM is short for Original Equipment Manufacturer, who produces products and components that he doesn’t sell to the consumer, but to other manufacturers. There are two different definitions: in IT, the OEM is the producer of products, components, or software that he sells to the PC producer. A well-known example is a PC with Microsoft Windows, built and sold by Dell or HP. In this case, Microsoft is the OEM. While an original equipment manufacturer is similar to a value-added reseller (VAR), the term refers specifically to the act of a company branding a product to its own name and offering its own warranty, support, and licensing of the product. The term is really a misnomer because OEMs are not the original manufacturers. Instead, they customize the original product. Kindly visit these links:  How to find computer model, description, and serial number in Windows environment, and how to use the command-line (CLI) to get computer-specific model information.

When you run these commands "wmic bios get serialnumber" and “Wmic computersystem get model” as shown in the diagram below

It will output the Model number in some cases and in other cases, it will not. For this case –   change “To be filled by O.E.M.” to our real Serial Number. We can see the commands did not work

Solution: Is to run, the following command below from the command line (CMD)

wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber

Cool… very helpful. I’ll use the output of this command a DMIedit utility to write the serial to the BIOS to make up for lazy developers.
