Using DMI236.EXE

by vinitogupta In reply to DMI configuration

Use the command line DMI236.EXE /g /n /s[m|p|v|s] string |/c[m|v|s|a] string| /b[m|p|v|s] to save or update the DMI information.
The parameters to add information are listed below:
/g
Save Manufacturer, Product Name, Version, Serial Number and UUID in Type 1. and Manufacturer, Product, Version and Serial Number in Type 2, to file UPDATE.BIN

/n
Write data from UPDATE.BIN (made from using /g parameter) to DMI

/ss "String"
system serial number string

/sm "String"
system manufacturer name string

/sp "String"
system product identification string

/sv "String"
system version string

/bs "String"
mainboard serial number string

/bm "String"
mainboard manufacturer name string

/bp "String"
mainboard product identification string

/bv "String"
mainboard version string

/cs "String"
chassis serial number string

/cm "String"
chassis manufacturer name string

/ca "String"
chassis asset tag string

/cv "String"
chassis version string

Here is the simple example for that:
DMI236 /ca "abc1234", abc1234 is your chassis asset tag string.

DMI236 /ss "123456", 123456 is your system serial number.

Thanks

Problems with the tool

by richard.eisenhauer In reply to Using DMI236.EXE

Hi, I tested the tool but I always get the following message when I enter dmi236 /p or dmi236 /g

Error Number = 30000081
It is PnP Function error !
Function Number = 0
Command Number = 0
Error happan in subroutine #0
Error Description :
PnP functions return code : 0x81, Unknow, or invalid, function number passed.

Do you have an idea? Or is it just useful for a special BIOS manufacturer? I use a phoenix BIOS.
