Bios Mode on Equipment Legacy or UEFI Information is available in msinfo32.

I would like to create a custom label or Custom inventory rule to identify what mode the bios is in. In msinfo32. it is identified by the operating system as Bios Mode. Its either Legacy or UEFI.  I tried to find this information in the registry but could not. Any advice on how to add this information Kace would be appreciated.

if you have Dells command|configure installed you can read the bios with a cir and then read the bootorder line that will tell you the mode the bios is in for boot.

This is the custom inventory rule that I use.

name is Inventory: Firmware Type

ShellCommandTextReturn(powershell -executionpolicy bypass -command "$env:firmware_type")


I then have a smart label named: Legacy BIOS  I filter in win 10 so my servers aren't included I'll handle those manually.

Inventory: Firmware Type           contains           Legacy
OS Name                                         contains          Windows 10
