Find the HP product number for Care Pack registration

As part of my job I have occasionally have to register HP care packs for servers and workstations and need the HP product number for this.

I always find it frustrating trying to find the HP product number when doing this remotely.

Luckily I have found a powershell script that will get this for you

If you run the following command from Windows PowerShell you will find the HP Product number.

gwmi win32_ComputerSystem | select OEMStringArray

While you’re in powershell you can also get the serial number:

gwmi win32_bios | select SerialNumber

This will also retrieve a Dell service tag if you have any Dell PC’s or servers on your network.

If you want a quick summary try running:

gwmi win32_bios

GWMI summary
GWMI summary

To see the full list of what can be found using these commands try:

gwmi Win32_ComputerSystem | select *

gwmi Win32_bios | select *

Now you have your HP product number you can register your Care Pack here for consumer products or here for Business users
