Hi Tim,

If our company get new computers, then we must change some settings. For
example disable Hyperthreading in BIOS, or e.g. enable infrared for mobile

So the first possibility is to run a script or program on the new machine,
which will set all necessary options in BIOS or Windows Registry.

The second possibilitiy is to distibute first all computers to employee
then to use a script or program remotely (e.g. WMI + C#) to set BIOS or

To set a windows registry is no problem, I already created some programs,
which use WMI and it works, but my question is CAN I CHANGE BIOS ON
WINDOWS MACHINE? If YES, which technology should I use?

Thanks for sugesstions
