How to find your motherboard BIOS at Microsoft update catalog

Recommended Posts


You don't find a motherboard BIOS on a manufacturer's site, or you do and you are still unsure if it is the right one?

Windows registry contains a very long hex number that is unique for your rig.


Do the following:

1. start regedit.exe

2. goto Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\UEFI\

3. unfold RES_{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} and click 0

4. double-click HardwareID

5. copy {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}


6. start browser

7. goto https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/home.aspx

8. paste {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} and search

Hopefully it exposes some results
