There are many products of this type that are available.

What he should be doing is to begin a network audit that includes all hardware and software.

Belarc free is OK, but it won't identify hardware that doesn't have the drivers installed. Other software such as PC Wizard and Everest can do this, they can do diagnostics which help diagnose problems with a PC as well.

Also, there are some versions of MS that the COA is issued with a special product key and if you use an image to distribute to a network, the only way that you can view or change the product key is to use the MS tool on their website.

For example,instead of the the COA showing OEM Software, it might show as TEAM:MSSIN. I have also experienced this problem with original distributions for NFP refurbisher licences.
