The Intel® Board ID Tool reports if you have a branded retail Intel® Desktop Board installed in your system. Here are the two options for using the tool:
- Offline Intel Board ID Tool
Save it to a folder to run later or copy to a USB thumb drive to run on a different computer. Use this version if your operating system and/or browser does not support the online version.
If the Intel Board ID Tool detects an Intel Desktop Board, the status window displays the board model, version number (AA#), and versions of the BIOS and operating system.
If the tool does not detect a branded retail Intel® Desktop Board, the following message displays: No Intel Desktop Board was detected in this system. If you get this message, you likely have an OEM desktop board.
Intel markets desktop boards into the retail channel and to various computer manufacturers known as OEMs (original equipment manufacturers). OEMs can customize the desktop boards to their own specifications. OEMs can also integrate the desktop boards with other system components such as a power supply, disk drive, software, and chassis.
For this reason, Intel cannot support a desktop board distributed by an OEM. You should contact the OEM directly or the place where you purchased your system for support. The OEM or the place of purchase is most familiar with your configuration and its integration of both hardware and software.
