Simplified Windows Autopilot Hardware Hash upload from OOBE

The following methods are available to harvest a hardware hash from new and existing windows devices:

  1. Using Windows PowerShell from OOBE (New Devices) or locally (Existing devices) 
  2. Accounts > Access work or school > Export your management logs file
  3. Using Microsoft Configuration Manager (Existing Hybrid devices)

Lets use quickest method using Windows PowerShell from OOBE (New Devices along with Group Tag) to upload the hardware hash directly to Intune:

1. In OOBE Press shift+f10 or sometimes shift+Fn+F10 to load command prompt with administrator rights.

2. Download the script from the below GitHub link or copy from below clipboard:
GitHub Link for the script: (Do change Line5 with your organization name and Line58 your correct GroupTag) 

 3. Run this downloaded script in command prompt with PowerShell:

4. Authenticate using Global admin, Intune admin or any RBAC admin account who has the permission to call Microsoft Intune PowerShell azure application.

5. This process can take around 5 minutes and hardware will be added directly to Intune. 

6. Now check the below path to see the new hardware hash added to your tenant: 

**Bonus: You can run the same script locally for existing device hardware hash upload.

Run this script in PowerShell with admin rights:
