hey maybe eventually you can make a check that searches for Strings like: IBM, ACER, DELL....this way you would save quite some diskspace as you do not need files for every other variation in "System Manufacturer" names.
I'm not concerned with disk space since identical files are only written once to the CD. Implementing this would require hardcoding the manufacturer names in the script (I don't want to do this) or maintaining a database (too much work for too little benefit).
no, i believe the opposite is true and the benefit of such method will be greater then its limitations...
I'll try to explain...if you search manufacturer strings for example "Dell"
or as hex "44656C6C"
you would have a more variable system that should work on various types of Dell Systems.
Dell PC's come with a randomly named '"System Manufacturer" string, one advantage it always starts with "Dell" eg;
And maybe a whole lot more variations... who knows!
Using a technique like this you have a more "reliable" versatile fail safe method that should work on every dell pc
Same counts for Acer, eg:
