Not so! HP does have "Part Numbers" for the Z200 Workstation Mainboard. I need the part number for Product Code 0B40. 1791 type is also installed in some Z200's and it will not receive the same image without Orange Triangles in Device Manager.
1506285-001, 599369-000, 503397-001 ALL THREE are Z200's. All 3 listed as salvage on EBay.
Which one is "0B40"?
I have a Million Dollar tool that needs a 0B40 Mainbaord ASAP and nobody at HP knows how to use the output of this msic command they advise using!

if you have made a custom restore image, and are having issues with restores the image itself is most likely the problem
i've seen custom install/restore images fail due to differences in the bios between systems, or single/dual cpu systems and also installed pci-e cards (which in one case was due to a firmware rev on the card)
the only difference between som HP systems that i'm aware of is some hp systems that came with linux will not do a windows restore with a official HP oem restore disk, although they will install windows using a retail disk with serial
the serial numbers you list are most likely from different HP divisions, and reference the exact same motherboard
on my z800/820/840 systems there are motherboard revisions such as the z800/z820's v1/v2 motherboards which relate to cpu compatibility, but this did not and will not affect a windows restore unless the restore also includes addon software that is cpu specific

HP says 0B40 is the official product type. Mine is 0B48h. EBay salvage z200 I bought is HP1791. Network Adapter built I, PCE items orange triangles. The image restores and works for the 0B48h only. The chip sets are indeed different. Why is it so hard to identify a real 0B48h?

as a test, install a windows 10 image that is untouched, directly from microsoft's download server on the problematic z200 if it installs correctly, and any yellow "!" are resolved with the matching HP driver then the issue is almost certainly with your custom restore image

Look, I have a $1M tool using this poorly defined mainboard and IF I can find a salvaged match, I wont have to buy a Dell!
You are living in denial! Ever had to restore an image to like mainboard before? I have been doing it in a fab for 10 years and I am here to tel you HP did a poor job specifying this mainboard!

actually i've over 20 years doing IT and i have run into this issue several times and in this field you learn fairly quickly not to get locked into a "supposed" this must be the problem so i'll ignore anything else........
since you have decided exactly what the problem is and no other solutions need to be considered or tried.................all i can say is good luck
