    Hello there,

    I need to assign (preferably) strings to different Mainboards,
    which I can read out from a Linux environment via dmidecode or any similar tool.
    Integers would do too, but strings would be cooler ;)
    The main point is to identify different Mainboards which are essentially the same Hardware.

    The Mainboard is an AAEON EMB-CV1,
    with an AMI Aptio BIOS.
    (sorry the board won't let me post links,
    just google emb-cv1 for more details/bios downloads)

    The Tool to flash it to the BIOS could also be a DOS Tool.

    I don't know which possibilies I have here,
    but I hope there is someone here who can point me in the right direction

    Thanks for the help,
