Preventing installation of WES image RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, need a bit of help/guidance if possible:

    How do I prevent a WES 2011 image to run or be deployed only on my hardware device platform? I.e. after I have a "golden image" is there tools/method to check for something unique (i.e. a proprietary PCI device or PnP ID) and prevent installation if not found?

    The registry key HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager : BootExecute specifies the applications, services, and commands executed during startup.
