    Re: RIS GUID Problems

    We have 400 of the laptops some of wich are 3 years old. I am trying to get some answers out of Asustek, but they are not being very helpful tbh. The BIOS is/was flashable, but they have stated there is now way to change this setting . I have tried a couple of BIOS editors anyway, to no avail.

    With the number of integrated network cards these days I don't see the point in using the guid, I'll stick with my easy to obtain and unique mac addresses instead

    When your GUID is vital for joining to a domain without it f***ing up the preceding PC that you joined in... it's pretty important in my world

    How are you using it? I'm just curious as I never bothered once I found WDS can use the mac instead. The mac is a unique value still, or does the guid contain more information than a unique value?

    To be honest I haven't had the time to figure it out but the GUID seemed to be vital even though the MAC addresses are different... Because the silly sods at Stone have put in a GUID of 101010101010110...etc... it doesn't default to the MAC.

    The other thing is that I'm using RIS still (because it works!) so WDS may well be different..
