Bios Config Utility

HP Recommended

I'm wondering if there is any way to pass an environment variable to the bcu?  I have an asset number that is a osd variable, and I want to write that to the bios during imaging.  

 

I'm thinking something like this:

 

BIOSConfigUtility64.exe /cpwdfile:”pw.bin” /setvalue:”Asset Tracking Number”,”%OSDAssetTag%"

 

I don't seem to have the right syntax, or it isn't possible to pass the variable this way.  Has anyone done anything similar?

You have the correct syntax.

 

I did not try to pass an environment variable with BCU,  but I tried to set my computer name for the  Asset Tracking and it works.

 

BIOSConfigUtility64.exe  /setvalue:"Asset Tracking Number","%computername%"

 

 

Note:  I don't have password set.
