Computer name harvesting
I would like to harvest the Dell Service Tag or serial number from the Windows computer and then use it as the computer name plus (for instance: -LTW7. I would like to do when the K2000 assigns the computer name to the box when it runs the Scripted Install.
Are there any scripts out the that do this or ones that I could modify to do this?

$Serial - The serial number of the client machine
$Make - The manufacturer of the client machine or motherboard
$Model - The model of the client machine or motherboard
$Chassis - The chassis type of the client machine
$Asset - The asset tag of the client machine
$OS - The OS version of the client machine (W7,WXP,W2K8,etc)
$Arch - The OS architecture of the client machine
$Mac - The MAC address of the active NIC
setcomputername.exe /name:$OS$Arch-$Serial will set the computer name to W7X64-1234567
setcomputername.exe /name:KACE-$Asset will set the computer name to KACE-Assettag
The name will automatically be truncated to 15 characters and any non-compliant characters will be removed (underscore, ampersand, etc)
