For some reasons you want to remove the Asset tag in BIOS of a laptop (in my case, it’s the Lenovo and I’m on Windows 7)
First, you go here to get the utility to read/write information to the Asset tag
Utility to Read and Write Asset ID Information — 6iaw03ww.exe — it could be a different file name.
Make sure you know where to save the exe file (eg. save on the Desktop)
Run the exe file to extract the utility. You can extract to your preferred drive (C, D or whatever) or its default directory.
In my case, I just use the default location (C:\Drivers\WINAIA)
Now it’s time to edit the Asset Tag.
Click Start button and type cmd into the box, right click on cmd.exe and select Run as administrator, click Yes if you see a confirmation
Type the following commands on ONE line and end with the Enter button.
Now you should see, C:\Drivers\WinAIA\
To see the current Asset tag info, type
WinAIApackage.exe –get [an window will pop up and show you the current info on your Asset tag, Click OK on the pop up to close it]
Example of Asset info
To set the Asset Tag, type (including the quotation marks)
WinAIAPackage.exe –set “USERASSETDATA.ASSET_NUMBER=this_could_be_anything” [click Yes to confirm if any]
That’s all I need to change but there are more if you want to play around with this.
This is the full list of commands you can use from Lenovo
All options, group names and field names are case-insensitive, except for the USERDEVICE group and the prefix value.
If no options are specified or an incorrect option is specified, then the help text for the utility is displayed.
Here is a list of the valid group names and their associated fields:
||[field1] – These fields are defined by the user.
: Maximum number of user fields is five.
