For grins, I ran the feed tool to identify manufacturer and model for a non-dell system.

I ran it on an eMachine

It gave out eMachine______

When I look at the hardware info for my test PC in k1 inventory, it does not have all the underscores.

For placing non-dell systems in the drivers_postinstall share, Do I need the underscores or can I leave them out in this case?

 A Toshiba matches manufacturer for the .vbs and k1 inventory.  I'm trying that now with the provided drivers_post install and will see how it goes.

all help is appreciated,

My understanding is that the osname_archtype needs the underscores but the manufacture and model do not.
