WMIC : get Bios serial number

by admin on March 12, 2011

We can retrieve bios serial number using the below command.

wmic bios get serialnumber


C:\>wmic bios get serialnumber

We can find other bios information also using ‘wmic bios get’ command. In the above command you need to replace ‘serialnumber‘ with the appropriate property from the list below.

  • BiosCharacteristics
  • BuildNumber
  • CodeSet
  • CurrentLanguage
  • Description
  • IdentificationCode
  • InstallDate
  • InstallableLanguages
  • LanguageEdition
  • ListOfLanguages
  • Manufacturer
  • Name
  • OtherTargetOS
  • PrimaryBIOS
  • ReleaseDate
  • SMBIOSMajorVersion
  • SMBIOSMinorVersion
  • SMBIOSPresent
  • SerialNumber
  • SoftwareElementID
  • SoftwareElementState
  • Status
  • TargetOperatingSystem
  • Version
