Hardware and Firmware Audit Dashboard

This tool scans your environment and, by default, displays charts for the Chassis Type, Manufacturer, and Model of the computers in the ConfigMgr collection(s) selected in the drop-down. Using the Select Charts button, you can also add SecureBoot, UEFI, and BIOS version charts. 

win32_computersystemproduct and win32_baseboard must be added to your hardware inventory classes for full functionality with Lenovo and HP models.
