Use WMIC to get the exact model/make of your computer

A short tip and note to myself. A quick way to get the exact model and manufacturer from a Windows PC using the command line.

This command gives me all the information I need to add the client for MDT deployments..

We usually configure MDT to look for the Model + Manufacturer to locate the drivers needed for the computer. We will add a driver group on the MDT Deployment share and inject the drivers in the MDT Task Sequence to filter the drivers like ‘Windows 7 x64\%make%\%model%. These are Windows variables.

This will give us the following folder tree for the Out-of-Box Drivers folder in MDT.

MDTdrivesr
