Prevent install of Windows 7 on 7th Gen Intel or newer


  • I am looking for an easy to maintain method to prevent MDT from installing our Windows 7 image on the newer, unsupported Intel chips.  We do not have complete control of the hardware that would be involved, but the majority is from Lenovo.  Unfortunately we had a hardware hiccup and now have a mix of 6th gen and 7th gen with similar model numbers in our storage.

    I found the following that looks promising:

    The only issue is that I cannot find the source of the number he is targeting.  It does not seem sequential and google has not helped me find a chart of any kind.

    Has anybody else run into this and do you have any good solution?

    The scope of this question has increased a bit.  Does anybody have a good way to limit a tasklist based on what hardware the OS supports?  As of now the only way I can think of is an exit script along with a bunch of custom profiles, but the exit script is going to be a nightmare to maintain every variation of an Intel processor, nevermind other hardware.
