Hi,

There are some articles on this board about the Network Card ID - ie the MAC address

For HDD volume ID there is an API function in the SDK: GetVolumeInformation

For HD/CD-ROM/DVD Hardware ID the ATA Identify Drive or the ATAPI variant could be used ... but AFAIK there might a need to code a KMD driver to retrive them...the same goes for CPU Serial number (if available and enabled)

For OS ID some info might be available in Registry
