Getting the Hardware ID for AutoPilot Enrolment.


If you have a new device its very easy to get the hardware information you need to enrol with Autopilot without going through the whole OOBE setup.




Start the device and wait a few second until the region selection page appears.

Press the following key combination SHIFT + F10

A CMD prompt will appear, type in PowerShell and hit Enter

The next step involves creating a local directory to store the information.

cd\
md scripts
cd scripts


You then need to set the execution level.

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

At the command prompt run the following commands.

Save-Script -Name Get-WindowsAutoPilotInfo -Path c:\scripts

The NuGet provider is required for this action. Press Y and Enter. NuGet will be downloaded and installed.

If you run a listing on the directory again you'll see the script downloaded to the scripts folder.

Run the following command;

Get-WindowsAutoPilotInfo.ps1 -outputfile c:\scripts\intunehwid.csv

This writes the required data into the intunehwid.csv file. This file needs to be uploaded to InTune either using either the Windows Store or the Device Management portal.

If you are enrolling a number of devices it's probably a good idea to script the whole process and run it directly from the USB key, appending the output data to a file on the drive rather then saving locally.

After that run; shutdown /p

.. to turn off the device.
