    Determining what computer a loose hard drive was previously installed


    Build 18362.592

    I have a loose hard drive that came from an unknown computer that was in a Hive of computers.

    I cannot determine which computer the hard drive came from but it was apparently the Boot drive for what I think was a Windows 10 installation.

    What I am wondering is if there is any data on that hard drive that might contain the System Information so that I could view it to determine which it may have come from based on other data such as Processor, RAM, Graphics card that was in that particular machine.

    Thank you

    Hi, just considering the drivers, you can do this:

    Display information about all drivers in an offline operating system.
    Dism /image:s:\ /Get-Drivers

    where s: is the drive letter of your offline image (change as necessary).

    You can get the computer name with an offline registry edit (research how to do that):
    Computername registry key
