New Hardware Profile on XP

By Roop34 ·
How do I create a new hardware profile on Windows XP desktop using command line or via Registry hacks. I have to create a 2nd Hardware profile on 1000 computers we have in our company via remote push.

Athough this probably belongs in the Technical Q&A, I will give you a quick answer.

I do not think that this can be done. From everything that I can find, you have to create a hardware profile locally on the machine.

Why do you need to create different hardware profiles?

Wrong forum

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions."

Please re-post there.

Thank you.

I don't envy your task

Hardware profiles are intrinsic to each system, since they involve all PnP and legacy hardware installed into the system and BIOS settings.

Is there something specific you are trying to enable or disable in your user base??

Perhaps there is a policy that could handle what you're trying to achieve by hardware policy. Like disabling sounds (my favourite bugaboo in office environments).

Need to REMOVE Hardware Profile

by gerard.munro In reply to I don't envy your task

I actually need to move to a SINGLE hardware profile. I've plyed with the Hardware profiles in the registry and it 'seems' to work.

Our environment means that all Laptops and built from a standard SOE and the profiles are set up and named identically. Should this be OK then to manipulate the registry?
