How to obtain a PnP Vendor ID??

    Question

  • I need to obtain a PnP Vendor ID from Microsoft - there is a webpage for this at:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/dn610887(v=vs.85).aspx

    Which I've followed the instructions and submitted the email request TWICE over the last 6 weeks - with NO RESPONSE...

    I also sent TWO emails to the same address asking about status... nothing.

    I checked ALL my spam filters - nothing - even added microsoft.com to the white list everywhere to make sure an email doesn't get filtered.

    So - I tried the personal method - called into Microsoft support - of course nobody knew what I was talking about and kept asking for my MSDN subscription ID... which is not needed to get a PnP Vendor ID... I bounced around to 3 different support people.. the last one took my name and email address and promised to get back to me... right... never happened. (yeah, I know, I should have gotten his name and email, and phone extension...but I didn't)

    We've got a video driver board for an embedded LCD that we're prototyping and I REALLY need to have the vendor ID to put into the EDID EEPROM... this is not for retail usage, only the embedded OEM market...

    This is so frustrating - dealing with the giant...

    Can someone help me with this? I just need the phone number of someone that know SOMETHING...

  • Hello,

    Sorry for the delay in getting you a response.  I located the team responsible for this information.  That website is unfortunately out of date (they will get it updated).

    The ownership for assigning these ID's has transitioned to the UEFI Forum:

    Thanks,
